Old Kempton Distillery is located in an 1840s mansion called Dysart House, in the picturesque colonial town of Kempton. A comfortable 40-minute drive from Hobart and 2hrs from Launceston. Our Distillery offers a range of tasting flights including Whisky, Gin and Liqueurs. We have a range of tour options and an all-day Cafe. Our Cellar Door is full of locally made produce, including Olde Spikey Bridge Peanut Butter, Tassie Settlers Whisky Sauces, Van Diemen Providore products and Port Arthur Lavender Farm products. A fresh, home-cooked menu is available, including our popular Devonshire Tea made fresh daily, house-made whisky beef pies and cider pulled pork pies. We also have cocktails, espresso coffee, hot chocolate and milkshakes. Please feel free to contact us about group bookings by emailing We cater to functions from 8 people to 40 and love to make their day special to them in any way we can. The distillery is only a short 1-min drive off the Midlands Highway with plenty of parking for vehicles of all sizes, including buses and camper vans. We have a Distiller Experience to teach you all things Distilling and you can even purchase and mature your own 20L barrel of whisky!
