Go behind the scenes of Old Kempton Distillery, learn the stories of Dysart House and enjoy a guided tasting of four unique drams. Finish the experience with an antipasto platter made with fresh Tasmanian produce, accompanied by a bottle of wine.
If you’re looking to experience the best of Tasmania, a visit to the Old Kempton Distillery is exactly that. The whisky distillery is housed in Dysart House - an 1840’s colonial inn - and it’s the perfect place to enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour, a tasting session and a delicious lunch spread with wine.
Getting to Old Kempton Distillery is just an easy 40 minute drive from Hobart, or about two hours from Launceston. Your tour will begin with a fascinating introductory film in the theatre room before you have an access-all-areas look around the working distillery. Then it’s time for your tasting session in the cellar door. You’ll be guided through four unique Old Kempton spirits, discussing the unique characteristics and flavour profiles of each.
Your day also includes a delicious antipasto lunch platter made with fresh Tasmanian produce, and a bottle of either red or white wine to share. The tour and tasting session all together will be about 1.5 hours, and you can opt to enjoy your lunch either before or after. This is a great opportunity to experience the products and scenery that Tasmania is famous for.
