Entertaining new guide to distilleries around the world

Ever dreamed of visiting Scotland and doing tastings at some of the finest whisky distilleries on the globe? Or visiting Tasmania to sample local gins, vodkas and brandies?


Designed for drinks lovers with a sense of adventure, Lonely Planet has just published Global Distillery Tour, a fascinating guide to distilleries from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon to Cape Town and on to Tennessee. 


Lonely Planet’s Global Distillery Tour takes in gin, bourbon and whisky to vodka, cachaça, tequila and more, recommending where to go and what to taste at the best distilleries and bars in more 30 countries.

Australia is represented in the book by 24 distilleries across the country, including:

New South Wales (Cape Byron Distillery, Archie Rose Distilling Co, Manly Spirits Co, Young Henrys, Husk Distillers)
South Australia (Prohibition Liquor Company, Twenty Third Street Distillery, Adelaide Hills Distillery, Applewood Distillery, Ambleside Distillery, Kangaroo Island Spirits)
Tasmania (Lark Distillery, Hellyers Road Distillery, Hartshorn Distillery, McHenry Distillery, Old Kempton Distillery, Sullivans Cove Distillery, Shene Estate & Distillery) and
Victoria (The Whiskery, Timboon Railway Shed, Starward Whisky Distillery, Hurdle Creek Still, Bass & Flinders, Four Pillars).


Each destination section (think Suntory's Yamazaki Distillery in Japan, above, or Iron Balls Distillery in Bangkok) also contains recommendations for top sights and experiences, as well as a special section showcasing the world’s best cocktails. 

Within each of the 33 countries featured in the book, distilleries are organised alphabetically by region. 

Also included in the distillery entries are a small number of bars that are best-in-class for their selection of one particular drink, such as arak in Lebanon or tuak in Malaysia, and for which distilleries are hard to find. 

Lonely Planet’s Global Distillery Tour costs $29.99
