A brandy distilled from Tasmanian grapes at the famed Sullivans Cove distillery.

Famous for their whisky, Sullivans Cove are also one of the leaders of the emerging modern premium brandy scene in Australia. Their current releases (circa 2021) date back to a period over ten ago, when they collaborated with winemakers in the Huon Valley to distil grapes.

The double cask release 3 is a mixture of nine-to-12 year old brandies, matured in a variety of European and American oak casks. Grapes distilled include pinot noir, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and gewürztraminer 

There are 1,345 in the release. The youngest spirit was filled into the cask 23 October 2009 and the brandy was decanted 17 August 2017.

Barrels used to create this expression were TDB0010, TDB0034, TDB0019, TDB0046, TDB0023, TDB0001 and TDB0037FS.

Bottled at 47.7%
