If last week’s whiskies were a bit rich for the budget – or you just want to support Australian made – take a look at Hellyers Road Distillery in Burnie, North West Tasmania. After trying the more expensive Scottish cousins, I admit I didn’t love the Hellyers Road Original Single Malt Whisky [RRP $80.50/700ml] straight away. The flavour is quite big on cereal, but over the course of the bottle, I have become quite the Aussie whisky convert! For me it drinks best with the subtle companionship of Fever-Tree Ginger Ale; but I am also partial to a tall glass of Hellyers Road Whisky, cold milk, maple syrup and Niuean vanilla (buy it at Herbie’s Spices) as my last drink before bed. If creating your own nightcap sounds too much like hard work, Hellyers Road Distillery also produce a lovely Whisky Cream [RRP $37.50/700ml] using rich Tasmanian cream. You can buy direct online, or pick up a last minute bottle at Camperdown Cellars (Darlinghurst) or Porters (Pyrmont) if you’re still searching for gifts for those hard-to-buy-for people…
