Maritime Tasmanian single malt whisky, made & matured just metres from the ocean in Bicheno, Tasmania. Set atop the lichen-covered rocks, what was once an old oyster hatchery is now a world-class whisky distillery with hundreds of casks maturing, 5 salt-laden bond stores and a cooling system run entirely by the ocean. Rich in history, their name is a nod to the former town name of Bicheno and honours Wauba Debar, a Tasmanian Aboriginal woman known for her bravery as ‘heroine of the sea’. A tale Waubs Harbour is proud to tell. Founded by Tasmanian family, Tim & Bec Polmear in partnership with Tim's brother Rob Polmear. The team come with a wealth of expertise with Rob formerly Head Distiller for Overeem Whisky & Head of Production for Lark Distillery. Waubs Harbour's official first release launched in April 2023 with the distillery officially opened by the Tasmanian Premier. Bottle number #01 of their Founder's Reserve whisky auctioned for $4800, with all proceeds donated to the Great Southern Reef Foundation. Many of their releases sell out quickly, with priority access given to their email list. When available, bottles can be purchased from their website, at whisky venues around Australia or at the distillery. Waubs Harbour offer small group Distillery Tours and Guided Whisky Tastings from Tuesdays - Saturdays. Bookings are essential - book at
