Bakery Hill Distillery was established 1999/2000 to prove a point – that great single malt whiskies could be made outside of Scotland, and specifically in Australia. Over the next 3 or 4 years the distillery perfected its processes and crafted three unique single malt whiskies acclaimed both within Australia and around the Whisky world. Bakery Hill Classic Malt, Bakery Hill Double Wood & Bakery Hill Peated Malt. Unique in the whisky world, we handcraft each of our whiskies from single cask, to produce malt of outstanding character, consistency and detail. Not only has Bakery Hill managed to consistently produce world class whiskies but our name has spread around the world with a constant stream of visitors from all over the globe, France, Sweden, Germany, Russia, UK and America not to mention all the states here in Australia. With increasing desire for craft spirits both within Australia and overseas, the distillery has focused heavily on maximizing production in order to satisfy the ever expanding demand for our products. As well as selling our malts to exclusive high-quality outlets throughout Australia, we have exported to France, Germany. Sweden as well as the UK. Unfortunately, the local demand has meant that currently all exports have been reduced in volume just to supply the local market. Sales of our whiskies are only a small part of our day to day operations with considerable time and effort also being spent on education, tastings and providing a unique whisky experience to increasingly large number of tourists (from all over the world) For many overseas guests, a tour and tasting at our distillery is one of the main features of a visit to Melbourne and even Australia.
