Master Chef Judge, Gary Mehigan, recently announced to readers of Fairfax Newspaper’s Good Food supplement that his favourite Australian single malt is Hellyers Road. What a great honour that such a respected ‘foodie’ has recognised the quality of our whisky. We already knew he was a good judge, but this acknowledgment confirms our faith!
And more on the topic of Master Chef – former runner-up, Ben Milbourne, recently dropped into Hellyers Road Distillery and road tested the new 12 Year single malt (see pic right). Ben, who was raised a stone’s throw from the distillery and went to school in Burnie, has just signed a deal to host his own TV program with a major Australian broadcaster. The yet to be named show will go to air nationally later this year.
Ben found our 12 Year to be very much to his liking. “This is way too good to be used in recipes”, he said.
