Our Story

Welcome to the rich tapestry of our history. Our story is one of resilience, passion, and a deep-seated commitment to crafting Tasmania's finest spirits.

The Birth of Section 44

Mr Andrew Patten, Mr Raj Charan Singh, and the Hon Stephen Parry
Discover the inspiring story behind the birth of Section 44 Distillery and the founders who brought their vision to life. The name Section 44 stems from an interpretation of the Australian Constitution that disqualified Senators and Members of Parliament from holding office if their father was born overseas. As a result, Stephen Parry, a Tasmanian-born Senator, lost his role in the Senate. This event brought together the three founders: Andrew Patten, Raj Charan Singh, and Stephen Parry, who decided to create a legacy in the spirits industry. United by their shared vision and commitment to quality, the trio embarked on a journey to craft exquisite Tasmanian spirits, building the foundation of Section 44 Distillery as we know it today.

Premium Whisky in Australia


Nestled amidst the ancient forestry and unspoilt landscapes of Tasmania, we tap into the region's natural bounty to create our premium spirits. Tasmania's cool climate, pure air, unpolluted water, and rich soil provide the perfect setting for distilling our exquisite Gin and Single Malt Whisky.

Traditional Distillation

Our distillation process incorporates Portuguese Alembic Pot stills made of copper. These stills, combined with a slow burn method, deliver a clean, smooth, and elegant spirit. We use the same stills for both the wash run and the spirit run, ensuring consistency and quality throughout the process.

Maturation and Bottling

Our Whisky is aged in French Oak and American Oak small casks to develop its unique flavour profile. Once matured, we carefully bottle our spirits to ensure the highest level of quality control.
