About us

OUR VISION IS TO TAKE ​TASMANIAN WHISKY TO THE WORLD

At Greenbanks, we’ve built a distillery capable of taking our own Tasmanian whisky brands to the world. If you have a similar goal, we’d like to invite you to come on board as a contract partner.
 
From R&D to production to maturation, we can provide you with a complete end-to-end solution.​

We can help you bring your new whisky brand to market by offering an outsourced capital-light production model in an otherwise capital-intensive industry.​

By partnering with Greenbanks you can launch and meaningfully scale your brand, while being confident in our ability to support your growth ambitions. ​

Who we are

Greenbanks Tasmanian Whisky Co. is a new entrant into the Tasmanian whisky industry and a privately-owned Australian company.

Our distillery in Bridgewater, Tasmania – 25 minutes from the centre of Hobart commenced production in late 2023.

​While we make whisky for our own brands, as a contract partner we will provide you access not only to Tasmania’s largest capacity whisky distillery, but also our ATO-licenced bonded warehousing to store your maturing whisky. 

​We can work with you to create your own unique Tasmanian whisky. Our ability to scale supply as your brand grows over time makes us the ideal long term partner​.
