In 2016, sharing a passion for hand-crafted, uncompromising quality, two long-time friends, Mark Kolodziej and Tim Freeman put the wheels in motion and a business was created, Stillsmiths Tasmania. Supplying premium distillation equipment to Tasmania’s emerging spirit industry, in the process learning not just what has been done, but what could be done.

Always looking for new opportunities, they had often tinkered with the idea of opening their own distillery. In 2021 the dream became a reality in the historic village of Westbury, nestled among the rich farmlands at the foot of the majestic Great Western Tiers the Western Tiers Distillery opened its cellar doors to the public.

Our distiller:-
It’s not often that a fabricator involved in the building of a distillery, has the opportunity to become its distiller!
That is exactly what John Scott, a long time boilermaker and craftsman has done. From installing our very own Stillsmiths Stills and distilling equipment to operating the distillery is a pathway that John has embraced.
John is mentored by Master Distiller Damian Mackey, famous for creating Tasmania’s distinctively rich, triple-distilled spirits.

Quality spirits:-
Our team are committed to providing excellent service and have an unrivaled passion to produce outstanding premium Tasmanian spirits.
