Adams Distillery, Perth Day 8
Adams Distillery is settled on the Glen Ireh Estate in Perth and is one of the younger distilleries in Tasmania. Founded in 2015 there is still a lot of work ahead until their first release.
Adam Pinkard is a paramedic, but he spends every minute of his spare time working at the distillery. This passion and effort are the reasons for the progress of the distillery.
After a short tour it was time to taste some new make spirit and I have to say, I haven’t tried something like this before, it was amazing. The new make spirit from Adams Distillery has this beautifully, crispy, sweet, bacon flavour, which I never experienced in a whisky before.
The reason for this extraordinary flavour, is the light smoked german barley, which is smoked with beachwood. Besides this barley, they also use two other kinds of barley: Pilsener Malt– a classic Tasmanian malted barley, what most distilleries use and Roasted/Crystal Malt– a heavily roasted malted barley.
Adams Distillery is a very interesting start- up distillery and I can’t wait for their first bottles to be released and to stock their products in Germany.
