OUR PHILOSOPHY

“Our passion is the distiller’s individual vision for their creations and our ability
to provide just the right
oak selection and coopers
touch to bring that vision
to reality”

Tasmanian Cask Company is a specialised spirit barrel cooperage based in the heart of the Tasmanian distilleries region. Our passion is bringing each distiller’s individual vision to life through the right oak selection and coopers’ touch.
Like the distillers around us, we come from very humble, but well-founded beginnings, and we’re driven by a shared passion to make a difference in the world of spirits. Today, our cooperage crafts more than 100 barrels every week, customised to individual specifications from the finest new and pre-filled oak selections available.
Our well established local and international direct supply relationships are the result of more than 15 years’ of specialised experience in sourcing and representing leading cooperages. We’re very proud of our achievements, and our focus is on producing barrels of unique and distinctive character, delivered through our industry-leading supply resources, experience and commitment to continuous innovation.
