Overeem Whisky Story
Tasmanian Whisky pioneer Casey Overeem, founded Overeem Distillery in 2007 as the fourth distillery in Tasmania. His first distilling experience in Norway in the 1980's fuelled his passion, and following years of research and experimentation, his ambitious quest to create a whisky that 'would proudly stand alongside the best whiskies in the world' began.
A meticulous and precise craftsman with a keen eye for detail, Casey practised patience throughout all aspects of the distillery. From long fermentation times to long and gentle maturations, Casey’s dedication to quality never faltered.
After launching the first releases of Overeem Single Malt Whisky in 2012 alongside his daughter Jane as marketing and sales manager, the brand quickly gained popularity throughout the country and received global praise. Nationally, a loyal following formed, seeing releases regularly sell out within minutes.
Today, Jane Overeem and her husband Mark continue Casey’s legacy, following the practices and principles on which Overeem Distillery was founded. They continue to grow the brand's popularity both nationally and internationally and remain true to Casey’s original ambition.
