Sullivans Cove, Tasmania's multi award winning luxury single malt will be available at the Le Clos store in Dubai airport as of November this year. This is the first Tasmanian whisky to be stocked at the top end store which is famous for setting a world record after a customer spent US$107000 on eight bottles of wine in 2010 and was voted "Travel Retail Operator of the Year" in 2009.
"Tasmanian whisky is really taking off across the world, mainly because of its extremely high quality. We are seeing a growing cult following for our whiskies, and recognition such as this to be stocked next to the world's best wines and spirits in a store of the caliber of Le Clos is further testament to the hard work that we are doing here at home", said Patrick Maguire, Master Distiller of Sullivans Cove. He added, "I am really proud that Sullivans Cove is leading the way for Tasmanian whiskies."
Fraser Jones, Single Malt Category Manager at Le Clos said: "We are really excited to stock Sullivans Cove, the quality is excellent and it is great to bring new, unexpected single malts to the consumer, especially when they are as good as this one. With its ideal whisky climate, Tasmania is fast becoming a strong contender at the luxury end of the single malt market."
Sullivans Cove is one of the most highly awarded Tasmanian whiskies, consistently winning Gold at the world's most prestigious blind tasting competitions including Jim Murray's Liquid Gold Awards, The Spirits Business's Spirits Masters and the World Whisky Awards.
