Spring Bay on Tasmania’s pristine east coast is situated on latitude minus 42.5 degrees south. Spring Bay’s cool temperate coastal environment produces some of Australia’s finest seafood and cool climate wines.
The influence of Spring Bay’s terroir comes through the water used in the distillery, which is less than 500 metres from the sea. Most afternoons, sea mist drifts up the valley and falls on the roof of the distillery, later collected when the rain falls. This sea salt imparts a unique profile to the water which is both soft and sweet.
