The Derwent Distillery is a small family owned business set up by Robbie and Emma Gilligan, on the banks of the Derwent River (Timtumili Minanya) in Dromedary Tasmania. Robbie hails from Glasgow, Scotland and Emma is a home grown Tasmanian. The name Derwent Distillery comes from one of the first legalised distilleries in Tasmania, originally set up on the banks of the Hobart Rivulet in South Hobart. Unfortunately the distillery was never given the time to shine and in 1838 their doors shut. Emma and Robbie have chosen to resurrect the name and create a blend of old and new, suitably distilling on an acreage which sits on the banks of the River Derwent.
