The Best Ways to Enjoy Peated Whisky

“This peated expression showcases the very best of Hellyers Road commitment to quality and patient maturation,” says Coutts. “Selected casks from the 2016 parcel of peated single malt were hand-picked for this bottling. I wanted this malt to showcase our spirit, and the unique proposition of creating a whisky from malt grown and peated in Scotland but mashed, distilled, and matured in Tasmania.”

But our commitment to excellence doesn't end with the whisky itself—we've gone above and beyond to curate unforgettable experiences to complement your tasting journey. Partnering with Salty Lips Oysters, a renowned North West Tasmanian Oyster farm, we've crafted a series of videos showcasing the perfect pairing of peated whisky and fresh oysters. The way the flavour characteristics of peated whisky and oysters complement one another makes this a perfect serve. The flavours of the smoky whisky perfectly complement the salty brininess of fresh oysters.
