Australian distillers are invited to participate in the 2019 Tasting Australia Spirit Awards; a celebration of all things distilled around Australia.

The Australian distilling industry is one of the fastest growing and most diverse in the world, and these awards aim to recognise that ingenuity and energy and celebrate the industry’s achievements.

Judging of the 2019 Tasting Australia Spirits Awards will be led by World Whisky Award Hall of Fame inductee Bill Lark of Tasmania’s Lark Distillery who is credited with reigniting Tasmania’s whisky industry and has accumulated global accolades for his uniquely Australian spirits.

Check out the 2018 award recipients here.

The Party

Encompassing gin, whisky, vodka, rum, brandy, liqueurs and more from around the country, find out which producers have been named Australia’s best by our esteemed panel of judges, headed by the Godfather of Australian whisky Bill Lark. Credited with reigniting the whisky industry in Tasmania with his now world-famous Lark Distillery in Hobart, Lark has accumulated global accolades for his uniquely Australian spirits, and was inducted into the World Whisky Award Hall of Fame in 2015.
