Quickly stopped in here whilst driving from Hobart up north. Worth the visit, such a beautiful location. Fantastic set up amongst the old buildings and really putting it to good use. Gin is great too!

If you like whiskey, you’ll love this place. If you don’t, you’ll still have a great time!

Our visit to the Shene Distillery was fabulous. My husband and I booked the deluxe tour and tasting, we learnt so much from Nicky on the tour and the platter and tasting was delicious. Anne and David are so kind and welcoming to their property, David even shared with us some additional information about the history of the property and a drop of his favourite Shene whiskey. I personally don’t really like whiskey so I enjoyed tasting the gins and the overall experience, I came away knowing a lot more than when we parked the car. I’d definitely recommend stopping in at Shene, even if you’re not a whiskey enthusiast you will enjoy your visit. The buildings alone are amazing and the cooperage is very interesting.

Bloody nice venue.

Did the tour + tastings and we felt very special doing so, seemingly having the distillery to ourselves.

Well worth checking out on the Tassie whisky trail.

Outstanding hospitality and friendly staff, matched only by their fabulous whiskies. Do yourself a favour - do not miss the opportunity to experience all this plus the historic buildings.

A last minute decision to "pop in" for some whiskey tasting at the Shene Distillery with my partner. We had such a great time! The owner and staff were incredibly accommodating and passionate about the site and their products.

Definitely recommend the tasting platter with your suite of tastings. Portions and quality thereof were great for the price.

We found the Shene Distillery a very interesting property. Along with learning distillery processes we were pleasantly surprised to be able to tour through the amazing historic buildings on site. This tour conducted by David (owner) who displayed his passion in the overall and continual work in progress, to retain all the historical features of the property.
A standout from the other 3 distilleries we visited, well done and thankyou David for the great tour of you much loved property.

Great place. Great whiskeys. Great hosts.
Apr. 2021
We dropped in on a whim as we are not whiskey drinkers but thought we might find something for our son, who is. Lovely buildings as others have noted, but what was great was the cheerful way we were greeted by Josh ("Hi folks, c'mon in!") and the super friendly way in which he and Anne shared their enthusiasm and knowledge with us. It's what convinced to buy some whiskey and support this place. Thoroughly enjoyable and a wonderful visit!

I went to Shene Distillery in March 2021. Had a wonderful time. David, the owner, is an absolute joy and very generous with his time. My partner mixed his own bottle of whisky which was lots of fun and a must do. The history of the buildings is very interesting too.

We’re big whisky and gin drinkers and Shene didn’t disappoint. Owners were there to tell us about the history of the beautiful location as well as the plans for the future. Brought a bunch of bottles and will return next time in Hobart.

Tasting and Tour

David and Anne are wonderful hosts.
We arrived close to closing time and enjoyed a tasting and very informative tour with David. They went out of their way to welcome us and spent hours entertaining and explaining the operation, despite being well over knock-off time. We throughly enjoyed the experience and look forward to our next visit. Many thanks.
