Nant

NANT

Nant whisky is produced on the Historic Nant estate in the central highlands of Tasmania, 350m above sea level. The style of whisky has similarities to Scottish whisky but follows a unique Tasmanian interpretation. While many of the processes are the same, it is the ingredients and location that sets Nant apart from the Scottish whisky heritage. Nant distillery uses water sourced from their millpond which in turn is fed from lakes Sorrel and Crescent up in the central highlands. The barley used is grown and malted in Tasmania and these factors have a big influence on the style and flavour of the Tasmanian whisky. The biggest influence comes from the types of casks used to mature and store the spirit. Nant uses Bourbon, Port and Sherry casks as well as new White oak casks. The reduction in overall air pressure due to altitude as well as big variance in temperature in a single year helps the spirit in the casks to interact with the wood and mature into whisky in different and interesting ways compared to other distilleries. Note: Spirits Platform are the official distributor of Nant in Australia, excluding Tasmania. For Tasmanian based enquiries contact Nant or visit the Nant website.
