Industry blueprint

THE TASMANIAN DISTILLED SPIRITS INDUSTRY BLUEPRINT, a strategic framework that aims to drive innovation, growth, and excellence in Tasmania has been officially launched.
  The Tasmanian Premier, the Honourable Jeremy Rockliff MP, together with colleagues and friends from the Tasmanian Whisky and Spirits Association, recently released the document, hosted at the Spring Bay Cambridge distillery.
   This blueprint for the future is of significant importance to the 80+ distilleries in Tasmania. We at King Island Distillery are grateful to be featured as part of this terrific team.

   The Tasmanian Whisky and Spirits Industry Blueprint is a comprehensive plan developed to guide and support the growth and success of Tasmania's whisky and spirits industry. It serves as a roadmap for industry stakeholders, including distilleries, producers, and government bodies, to collaborate and create a thriving and sustainable sector.

  The blueprint emphasises the importance of preserving Tasmania's reputation for exceptional quality and craftsmanship, ensuring that every product maintains the highest standards.  It showcases that we all harness Tasmania's unique natural resources, including pristine water sources, quality barley and ideal climatic conditions to produce world-class whiskies and spirits.

   Key aspects of the blueprint include fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing among industry participants (as Bill and Lyn Lark have always guided us to do), promoting sustainable practices in production and packaging, supporting the development of tourism experiences centred around whisky and spirits and the new era of growth facilitating export opportunities to showcase Tasmanian products globally.

   By implementing the Tasmanian Whisky and Spirits Industry Blueprint, the industry can continue to flourish, attract investment and create jobs. Most of all makes Tasmania one of the best destinations for whisky and spirits enthusiasts. 

   The June 2023 Whisky and Spirits Industry Blueprint document, can be downloaded from the TWSA website.
