An utterly unique vodka made from sheep’s whey from arguably Australia’s smallest distillery.
Tasmania’s Hartshorn distillery are believed to be the first in the world to distil spirits from sheep whey, a bi-product of their cheesemaking.
Head distiller Ryan Hartshorn spent two years learning how to convert the complex sugars held within the whey protein into basic sugar to then ferment into alcohol and distil. It is believed that this is the only distillery in the world to make spirits from whey.
It is distilled through a tiny 50 litre glass still, with only 10 bottles are produced per run.
The end result is a creamy, soft vodka that is very smooth and delicately sweet.
Each bottle is hand painted by Hartshorn, so each one is unique.
