Hellyers was awarded $250,000 from the government’sRegional Revival Fund toinstall the new bottling line as well as other infrastructure to support the growing demand for their whisky.

Construction on the new bottling line and storage facility is expected to cost more than$1 million.

Speaking among1400 casks of aging whiskey on Saturday, Tasmanian PremierWill Hodgman said the $250,000 injection from the Regional Revival Fundwould support the Hellyers Roadbusiness,which had grown to becomea tourist destination.

“It will mean more local jobs and more economic activity for our state,” he said of the expansion.

“It was a pioneerbusiness in our now burgeoningwhiskey industry.”

Distillery general manager and master distiller Mark Littler said the governmentfundingwould assist to create the dream of a “world-class whiskey”business and tourist destination.

“We’ll built a very smart bottling linewhere we’ll be able to streamline all our activities,” he said.

“We’re not only investing in this development with our bottling line but we’re making further investments with increased brewing and distilling programs to be able to support that growth in years to come.”

This year Hellyers Road moved about 120,000 bottles of whiskey–up from 80,000 the previous year.

Ithas expanded its product distribution to Europe, Japan, India and Argentina and other markets such as France have shown interest.

Visitor numbers to the Hellyers Road Distillery atHavenview has also increased 16 per cent on the previousyear.

Mr Littler said the new bottlingline and storage facility would facilitate the growth of the business.

Construction plans will be finalised in the next few weeks and it is hoped the development will be completed within the financial year.

Mr Littler said there was a “lot of scope” to increase the number of people employed at the distillery.

Using Hellyers Road as an example,Mr Hodgman said the Regional Revival Fund was designed to give private enterprise support on their projects.

“Often a bit of assistance from the state government will get a great new project across the line and this is a wonderful example of that,” he said.The government funding caps off a great fortnight for the North-West Coast business.Last week Hellyers Road was named Tasmania’s Small Business Exporter of the Year.
