Gintonica’s Gin Podcast Series #2 Episode 3

Series 2 Episode # 3 McHenry’s Distillery & Nonesuch Distillery

This time Deeksie and Boxy head south to Tasmania, the home of our modern era distilling. It was back in 1992 that Bill Lark of Lark Distilleries lobbied to have the maximum volume of a licensed still dropped down over 10 fold so he could make whisky. In this episode we talk to William (Bill) McHenry about how he came to find himself in Port Arthur with fresh air and pristine spring water. One of the older distilleries in Australia makes more whisky than gin, but sells more gin than whisky – find out why. Then we turn to Nonesuch Distillery, a small boutique distillery headed up by Rex Burdon, gin lover extraordinaire and all ’round great guy. Rex has a special spot in his heart for Sloe Gin and makes a special spirit called Sloe Malt.
