About Australian SPIRITS

There are numerous types of spirits produced in Australia, from fruit, honey and coffee liqueurs to vodka to single malt whiskeys. While the industry is not well known, it is growing in leaps and bounds and recently, there has been a lot of publicity for the single malts produced in the southern island of Tasmania.

Look for more spirits and liqueurs from Australia to hit the US market and receive much more media attention.
