Furneaux Distillery

  • Project Team — Sam Cooper, Nick Harding
  • Builder — John Riddle
  • Photographer — Tom Ambroz

On the rugged coastline of Flinders Island, Tasmanian Tom Ambroz is distilling some of Australia’s best spirits. As one of the few hospitality offerings on the island, Furneaux Distillery further consolidates Tasmania’s burgeoning spirit industry. Maritime whiskies with salt spray-infused local peat, and gin infused with Flinders-foraged native botanicals — all distilled (and served) in a bespoke, utilitarian shed. Eco Truss’ laminated timber portal represents Ha’s first mass-timber build.
