Food, Fire, Whisky & Tales with Tasmanian distillers and chef Massimo Mele.

Join distillers for a very special experience with Tasmanian chef Massimo Mele.
Massimo will be cooking four courses matched with single malt whisky, with in season and local produce over fire. This amazing experience is an intimate dinner with distillers and Massimo for 10 guests only.

Distilleries taking you through their whisky and telling their story are:

Efren Jamieson from Adam’s Distillery, Craig Spilsbury from Iron House, David Debattista from Launceston Distillery and Rob Tyson from Old Kempton Distillery.

The event will take place at The Granary, Richmond Hill, Cressy, heritage accommodation from the early 1800’s that was originally built by convicts from sandstone and brick. It has had many uses over the years, from granary, stables, worker’s quarters and shearing shed. It is now transformed into a rare and beautiful place to stay with three double bedrooms. Usually, it is a minimum two-night stay and Fiona, your host has generously permitted a one-night stay for this one in a life time event.

Guests will be greeted with a glass of Lake Barrington 2019 Wild Sparkling as you warm yourself by the fire at the banks of the Macquarie River where the first course will be held. Other wines provided are Lake Barrington 2019 Chardonnay ‘Ceilidh’ and Petrichor 2019 single vineyard Pinot Noir.

Guests will then move into the heritage house and into the open -plan kitchen and dining room, beneath a frame of Tasmanian oak beams. The distillers will be dining with you, pouring their whisky to the matched course and regaling you with plenty of stories. Your host, Fiona will also be on hand to answer any questions you have about the The Granary building and gardens.

Transport from Launceston is provided by the Tasmanian Whisky Experience. Guests will be transported to and from Launceston CBD (if you do not choose to stay in this beautiful accommodation) at 4.30pm. Pickup and drop off at the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, opposite ‘The Eatery’ on Cameron St.
