A winter nip in Tassie

On the outskirts of Launceston, overlooking the picturesque and mist-covered valley of the North Esk River, Adam Liaw rugs up and sets out on a crisp winter morning to discover a boutique whisky distillery and it's proud owner and maker, John Wielstra.

Fittingly named after the gorge some 400-metres from the property, that was itself named after a location in Scotland by Launceston's first settlers, Corra Linn Distillery is a relative newcomer to Tasmania's whisky distilling boom.

"If you had to look for the picture-perfect vista for a small batch single malt whisky distillery, this would be it," says celebrity cook and TV host, Adam Liaw. "You've got the rolling hills behind you, John rolling the barrels up the hill by hand. It's exactly what you'd want it to be."
