Distillery Experience

Drive only 30 minutes south of Hobart into the beautiful Huon Valley to Willie Smith’s Apple Shed, home of Willie Smith’s Organic Cider.  Here you will find the Charles Oates Distillery where they’re using a French design, Charentais Alembic still, the only of it kind in Australia, to make delicious apple spirits.

Distillery Experience

Spend 1.5 hours in the Charles Oates Distillery as a special guest of the distiller.  Get up close to the working copper Charentais Alembic still and learn about the French art of cider distillation. See how Charles Oates apple spirits are made and aged to make Fine Apple Brandy (known in France as Calvados).

Tastings and More

Be guided through a tasting of the Charles Oates spirits matched perfectly with a food plate and cheese platter designed by the Willie Smith’s Apple Shed Head Chef.

Groups for the distillery experience are set at a maximum of ten people so that you will be given the best opportunity to talk with the distiller and enjoy your time learning about and tasting the Charles Oates spirits.
