The Last Thylacine Single Malt Tasmanian Whisky.





A shy and nocturnal apex predator relying on its keen sight and hearing when hunting, the Thylacine was known mostly to appear in the dusky twilight hours. Wary, inquisitive and shaped by its native environment – rich soils, pristine air, pure rainfall, the woodlands and the coastal brush of Tasmania. The last known Thylacine is believed to have died in 1936 and despite being declared extinct there have been many unconfirmed sightings, even as late as February 2019 - but no conclusive evidence of the elusive Tasmanian Tiger. The home of TLT is the gateway to Northern Tasmania, a place of mysterious purity, bursting with natural beauty and renowned for premium produce. 




Our whisky starts with two undeniably Tasmanian components – 100% locally grown and malted barley and the purest water from our longest river, the South Esk. It's brewed, fermented and twice distilled by hand in small makes in the iconic Hangar 17 at the Launceston Distillery. The refined distilling process pays homage to the true style of Scottish Whisky in this hand crafted Tasmanian single malt whisky.

The Tasmanian made copper stills are clad in Tasmanian oak and ever under the watchful eye of our skilled distillers. Re-purposed staves are charred by a local cooper to open up the wood and allow for integration of flavour. The subsequent carbon absorbs any unwanted characteristics, leaving only the smoothest spice and richness to develop over the 27.5 months our whisky spends in barrel. The barrel size, type and maturation periods are key elements of the process when crafting a whisky to reflect the purity and quality of our natural environment as well as vintage specific characteristics.




Our distiller is Chris Condon, the face of the Launceston Distillery in Hangar 17, Tasmania’s oldest commercial aviation building. With a wealth of experience in the iconic Boags Brewery, and the founding distiller of Nant Distillery, Chris follows his heritage and the tradition of Scottish Malt Whisky, in the Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky he crafts in his hometown of Launceston.




The process of skill, patience and passion builds to a seemingly sudden moment where there is nowhere for our Thylacine to hide. The revelation is in the moments it takes to appreciate a flavour, like the glimpse of the iconic striped back appearing in the dense Tasmanian scrub.

The Last Thylacine is a creature of untamed complexity placing the skill of the distiller and the purity of the ingredients on full display if even for just a moment in time. The only evidence that remains is the smooth flavour, unique Tasmanian characteristics and a lingering finish forever imprinted on your memory.
