Tasmania's Sullivans Cove single malt whisky has announced it has signed up Melbourne-based Alepat Taylor to distribute the range nationally.

Under the new agreement, Alepat Taylor will manage sales and distribution across mainland Australia, which will make it easier for people to get their hands on the award-winning and highly acclaimed Sullivan's Cove range.

"We have come a long way from humble beginnings 18 years ago and we are delighted that such a fantastic team as Alepat Taylor is now our partner," said Sullivans Cove's chief distiller Patrick Maguire.

"Tasmanian whisky is experiencing rapid growth due to its excellent quality and I believe that every Australian deserves to taste a Tassie whisky at least once, and now this will be possible thanks to our partnership with Alepat Taylor." 

The Tasmanian distiller has also just been named World Whisky Grand Master by the world's leading drinks magazine, The Spirits Business, the latest in a long line of accolades it has received this year.

This includes being named Southern Hemisphere Whisky of the Year by Jim Murray and Australasian Distiller of the Year at Dominic Roskrow's Wizards of Whisky earlier this year.

"This has been an amazing year for us, many years of hard work are finally coming to fruition all at once and it's fantastic to see Tasmanian single malt beginning to be recognised around the world," said Maguire.
