The Story of Overeem Whisky

The Overeem Distillery began as a family-owned and operated business, headed by Casey Overeem. Casey’s interest in the industry started back in the early 1980’s when he had his first experience of distilling at a relative’s house in Norway. “Many people had micro-distilleries in their cellars and I really admired them, so I started experimenting when I got home” said Casey.

Following years of research, experimentation and the realisation that Tasmania was the perfect place to make single malt whisky, Casey secured his distiller’s licence in 2005. It was time to commence his ‘hobby-business’!

A trip to Scotland, the spiritual home of all whiskies shortly followed with visits to around 15 distilleries to gain a better understanding of the entire distillation process.

Being a real family affair, Casey’s youngest daughter Jane Overeem is also hands-on and fully involved. Jane is the Overeem Brand Ambassador and manages the sales and marketing areas of the whisky business.

Overeem Single Malt Whisky is available at specialist bars, restaurants and liquor stores throughout Australia, the Netherlands and the UK.
