MIDDLETON     Grandvewe Cheese & Vodka 

We continue our travels down to Middleton to experience Diane and her partner Alan's farm. After purchasing the farm they established a flock of East Friesland sheep, a dutch variety bred for their high milk yield. Within two years of production Diane won ‘Best Organic Product’ at the 2003 Tasmanian Fine Food Awards. More recently their chosen breed of sheep is Awassi as they are robust and drought-tolerant, ideally suited to the Tasmanian climate. Grandvewe is the only producer of its kind to be certified organic. They excelled in winning gold at the 2012 Sydney Royal Cheese and Dairy Produce Show (Royal Agricultural Society of NSW) which led to Grandvewe applying for the President’s Medal, the country’s highest produce accolade.

Hartshorn Distillery is a new Tasmanian micro distillery making boutique batches of Vodka and Gin from their own sheep whey. They are the first in the world to create this unique product   and are proud to be the smallest distillery in Australia - making small 10 bottle batches using a 50L glass column still. Each bottle and label is hand painted by head distiller Ryan so you can display it proudly amongst your collection. All of their spirits are unfiltered - meaning you can enjoy a spirit with more character and complexity http://grandvewe.com.au


THE BEACH RESTAURANT    Blackmans Bay                             AFTERNOON BREAK

After that unique experience we travel back towards Hobart, stopping in at The Beach Restaurant, known by locals and tourists alike (in the southern bush beach suburb of Blackmans Bay) for it's great position overlooking Blackmans Bay beach and coastline. Afternoon break consists of your choice of a hot or cold drink, or a glass of Tasmanian red or white wine/beer.

Our next destination is back toward Hobart taking in the views from the winding bends towards Taroona and on to Sandy Bay’s best Deli,'Lipscombe Larder' where you will find a treasure trove of fine Tasmanian Food and Wines.
