- Nonesuch Distillery
- Shene Estate & Distillery
Nonesuch Distillery is a family owned and operated distillery established by Rex and Annette in 2015. They believe that producing great spirit comes about because of the use of quality ingredients, the constant improvement of the process and the care they give to each batch during production.
Their distillery is located in country Tasmania on a working farm that has been in the same family for six generations. The story of how they came to be where they are is one of country helpfulness that reminds them that this area was settled and became prosperous (in colonial times) by such generosity.

“What a Tasmanian gem this place is! Nonesuch Is so very welcoming and so happy to share knowledge on the craft that is gin and whiskey making, Rex showed us through the distilling process and was extremely knowledgeable and wanted to share as much as he could about his awesome place. Nonesuch has fantastic gin and I imagine the whiskey is top shelf but didn’t try (saving something for the next visit) 5 stars doesn’t do nonesuch justice 10/10.” – Mitchell Leeds
