Our Story

'A Pioneer'

Tasmanian Whisky pioneer Casey Overeem, founded Overeem Distillery in 2007 as the fourth distillery in Tasmania. His first distilling experience in Norway in the 1980s 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.

'Patience and Passion'

A meticulous and precise craftsman with a keen eye for detail, Casey practiced patience throughout all aspects of the distillery. From long fermentation times to long and gentle maturations, Casey’s dedication to quality never faulted.

'A Cult Following'

After launching the distilleries first releases in 2012 alongside his daughter Jane as marketing and sales manager, Overeem Single Malt Whisky quickly gained popularity throughout the country and received global praise. Nationally, a cult following formed, seeing releases regularly sell out within minutes.

'The Legacy Continues'

Today, Jane Overeem and her husband Mark continue Casey’s legacy, following the practices and principals on which the distillery was founded. They continue to grow the brands popularity both nationally and internationally and remain true to Casey’s original ambition.
