OLD KEMPTON

CELLAR DOOR/CAFE

The cellar door has charmingly restored rooms located in the main manor house and a beautiful courtyard to sit and relax while you enjoy some home cooked treats from our cafe menu. The cellar door offers a wide variety of tastings of Old Kempton Distillery products – take your pick from Single Malt Whisky, Tasmanian liqueurs and our range of gins. Enjoy a personalised tasting flight or a nip of Single Malt. The grand coaching inn, built in 1842 by convict embezzler turned-innkeeper, William Ellis, was one of the finest inns on the road from Hobart to Launceston where weary travellers and their horses could rest overnight. The convict brick stables, once home to 22 horses, now houses Old Kempton’s Tasmanian-made 600L and 900L copper still’s. Our newly built distillery is nearly finished and will streamline our spirit production while still keeping us the small artisan distillery that you love.
