Belgrove Distillery

Belgrove Distillery | Kempton TAS

Founded by Peter Bignell, a sixth-generation Tasmanian farmer, Belgrove Distillery was the first rye distillery in Australia, and is the only bio-fueled distillery in the world. Belgrove Distillery is one of few whisky distilleries in Australia that is paddock to bottle. This means all of the grain is grown on-site, harvested, distilled, aged and bottled at the Distillery location. Peter constructed the copper pot still that he uses and also reconditions and chars his own barrels for ageing whisky himself.
