Creating great whisky and gin on this amazing island is what makes us want to jump out of bed of a morning.
Nonesuch is a family owned and operated distillery established by Rex and Annette in 2015. We believe that producing great spirit comes about because of the use of quality ingredients, the constant improvement of the process and the care we give to each batch during production.
Our distillery is located in country Tasmania on a working farm that has been in the same family for six generations. The story of how we came to be where we are is one of country helpfulness that reminds us that this area was settled and became prosperous (in colonial times) by such generosity.
The Tasmanian South East farming area has real significance for us as our family links trace back to the first settlers here. One of our ancestors travelled by horse and cart to Sorell in order to sign the temperance pledge so we wonder what he would make of a descendent who creates whisky and gin.
Initially Nonesuch Distillery was established to be a gin distillery. We were keen to create gins that spoke of "place" by using some local botanicals alongside the more traditional ingredients. This saw us develop our Sloe Gin using sloes from old hedgerows around the state.
In 2017 Chris joined his dad, Rex, and Annette at the distillery and bought with him a passion to create Nonesuch whisky. Chris' dedication, research and passion has resulted in the creation of Nonesuch Single Malt and the distinctive Nonesuch Single Grain whiskies.
As a craft operation we know we can never compete on price with the huge distilleries. Given that, we simply have to compete on quality and by creating gin and whisky with amazing flavour profiles that are unique and memorable.
By producing micro batches of our products we make sure that every one receives the level of attention required to craft it to perfection.
