TIMBOON RAILWAY SHED DISTILLERY
JOSH WALKER

Inspired by the local history, to make Timboon famous once again for its high quality whisky. This distillery is a tribute to the amazing distilling history in 1800's in this region.

In the 1890s, Tom Delaney was the most notorious distiller in the Timboon district. It’s been noted that, at the peak of his illegal distilling career, he was producing 100 gallons of high quality whisky each week. He labelled it ‘Mountain Dew’ and cheekily put the official Government stamp on it. Eventually the Government decided to wipe out the illegal trade and Detective Inspector Christie (a one-time personal bodyguard of HRH Prince Alfred) was put in charge of shutting down the main player. Christie disguised himself as a travelling tinker as part of his mission to catch out Delaney and his associate, Jim Love. The assignment came to a head with shots fired and the distillers escaping. For years, bottles of Mountain Dew continued to mysteriously emerge across the district and the locals’ taste for a good single malt is still very much alive today.

The whisky made at Timboon Railway Shed Distillery is a single malt whisky, distilled in a pot still, using malted barley as the only grain ingredient. Josh's inspirations are the great single malts of Scotland and the Isles, so it’s only natural that his own whisky is made to the same time honoured traditions.

"One of the most enjoyable whiskies I have had the pleasure of tasting. It is ideal for beginners and seasoned tasters because while it is mild and gentle it has shimmers of power and lots of complexity and depth."
