Sheffield based wine merchant Le Bon Vin, is to distribute Tasmania Distilleries, Sullivans Cove whiskies in the UK.
Tasmanian Distilleries was one of the first Australian distilleries to export to European markets.
Established in 1994 and with a change in ownership in 2003 the distillery and its Sullivans Cove whisky has won a number of awards and strong recommendations from industry experts the world over.
Available in three main varieties; Double Cask, Port Cask and Bourbon Cask, the whisky has received praise from whisky critics such as Grégoire Sarafian and regularly scores in the 90s in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.
Le Bon Vin Managing Director Patrick Jouan, said: "We're delighted to work with Tasmania Distillery to bring their fantastic products to UK whisky lovers.
"As with wines from Australia, Sullivans Cove is challenging preconceptions about whisky from the country and its constant stream of awards only serves to validate the brand's self belief."
Since the middle of 2011, Le Bon Vin has been extending its ranges of wine, liqueurs and spirits to increase its selection of products from smaller estates and boutique distilleries.
The three varieties of Sullivans Cove Single Malt will be available at Le Bon Vin from mid-November.
