Waubs Harbour Maritime Tasmanian Whisky, with Tim & Bec Polmear

Few Australian distillery launches in 2023 have been greeted with the excitement surrounding Waubs Harbour in Bicheno, Tasmania.

It’s easy to see why. The distillery’s striking location in a former oyster hatchery on the rugged Tassie coast promises a true maritime expression of Australian single malt whisky.

The founders bring with them some pretty impressive pedigree in both distilling and business generally.

Head distiller Rob Polmear was previously head of production at Lark Distillery, and head distiller at Overeem.

He’s banded together with our guests this episode – his brother Tim Polmear and Tim’s wife, Bec – who in 2015 successfully exited an e-commerce business, Flat Tummy Tea.

Since our conversation, Waubs Harbour has revealed the identity of its distributor, Proof & Company, which also represents brands including Never Never Gin, Ferrand Cognac, Plantation Rum and more.
