Adams Distillery

In 2016, just South of Launceston, Tasmania, at the Glen Ireh estate in Perth, the inception of a whisky venture unfolded. Two close friends, Adam Pinkard and Adam Saunders, collaborated to actualize their single malt whisky distillery aspirations. United by a common dream, ambition, and a penchant for innovation, the duo embarked on a journey of whisky exploration.

Benefiting from the wealth of knowledge within the Tasmanian craft whisky community, where practitioners readily shared insights, the Adams found inspiration to pursue their vision of establishing a notable craft whisky enterprise at the Glen Ireh estate. 

Tragedy struck in February 2021, as a fire ravaged the distillery, reducing it to ashes and shattering dreams. Fortunately, the maturing whisky stocks emerged unscathed, and with newfound support from investors, the team resolved to rebuild. The determination was reinforced when Adams Peated Port Slosh cask won acclaim as the category winner and the best Australian single cask malt at the 2021 World Whiskies Awards. Subsequent accolades, including medals at the World Whiskies Awards, World Gin Awards, and recognition in the esteemed Jim Murray Whisky Bible, further fueled their resurgence.

From the ruins, Adams Distillery has emerged, ushering in a new era with revitalised energy and a vision that encompasses an expanded range of premium craft whisky, gin, and other spirits, available across Australia and select global markets.
