Join Belgrove distiller Peter Bignell via video chat on Zoom as we go through a wide selection of his current whiskies - with rye, oat, hopped malt, and single malt whiskies.

Many will tell you that Belgrove is a paddock to bottle distillery in Tasmania - but that really doesn't tell the whole story. Peter built his own copper pot still from scratch, and runs it direct fired with biofuel made from the used cooking oil of the roadhouse next to the farm. His water heaters, tractors, forklift, and truck, also run on fuel made from the same used oil. The used cooking oil is the only significant material brought onto the farm - with whisky being the only main product to leave.

All of Belgrove's rye is grown on the same farm where the distillery sits, the cooling water comes from his own dam - and is either recycled or used for irrigation of the next rye crop. Water for brewing and distilling is harvested from the many roods of the farm's sheds. The spent mash is fed to the farm's sheep. This is not a distillery like any other!

This tasting will contain 6x30ml bottles of Belgrove whisky - we suggest pouring half of each during the tasting and going back to the rest either at the end of the tasting, or at your leisure.

The Lineup:

The virtual doors will open at 6:45pm for introductions, and a 7:00pm start to tasting the whiskies; followed by general questions and discussions.

Whisky Flights tasting kits can be shipped Australia-wide via Express Post or TNT Overnight Express. They can also be collected from our partner in Fyshwick (for those living in Canberra).

Due to ongoing delays with standard courier services, regular Parcel Post is not currently available.

At Whisky Flights we love our planet, and we want to enjoy our whisky tastings without causing environmental harm. To this end, please re-use or recycle your glass whisky bottles and their plastic caps. Please also re-use, recycle, or compost, all of the paper and cardboard supplies and packaging as well.

All of the paper and cardboard packaging used in getting your Whisky Flights tasting kits to you are FSC certified as coming from sustainable sources, and are fully compostable and recyclable. Your Whisky Flights tasting kits are also sent out to you in fully compostable eco-satchels (except for very large orders).

Please note that this event is strictly for people aged 18 years and older.

Whiskies are arranged through Distinct Whiskies - NSW Liquor License LIQP770017205

Upcoming Flights

We've got a great selection of flights planned for the near future, with destinations including some favourite distilleries from Islay, and Speyside, in Scotland; a tour of Irish single casks, a meandering tour across Europe and Scandinavia, and some stunning sights from the United States of America.

We will also be taking off for some domestic destinations, where stories abound of the hard yakka that goes into setting up some of The New World's most loved distilleries - where we will try some of the boldest, meatiest, whiskies that have been slumbering away on this sunburnt country of ours!

Make sure your luggage is securely stowed, and your seatbelts are done up low and tight folks - some of these flights will be like none that have ever graced this beautiful capital of ours!
