Event description
Nestled away in Kempton, Tasmania, is one of the world’s truly remarkable whisky distilleries. Peter Bignell’s Belgrove distillery is a quintessentially Australian story of the land, ingenuity and sustainability.

Belgrove’s rye whiskies can sometimes fly under the radar, his Tasmanian single malt neighbours (with comparatively big operations) tend to be a bit louder.

But Bignell’s is an Australian whisky story that needs to be told.

He hand-built his distillery on the farm, growing his own ryecorn to product a 100% rye whisky – and using 100% rye in a mash bill isn’t an easy feat. His copper still was built from scratch, is direct fired and runs in biodiesel Bignell makes from oil from the fishand chip shop down the road.

Water heating, his forklift and truck also run on biodiesel.

In his own words, “The only significant material I bring to the farm is waste cooking oil and the only product to leave is whiskey.”

Belgrove is perhaps the greenest distillery in the world, and one that’s starting to gather an international following.

Friday 27 January we’re delighted to confirm Peter will be dropping by The Oak Barrel to tell the story of his remarkable distillery and pour a few drams.

We’ve had the pleasure to sit with Peter on a few occasions now and we can assure you, his stories are legendary.

Expect a few variations of his rye whisky to be on pour – line-up to be confirmed on the night when Peter reveals what he’s brought…
