We are the only Organic Sheep cheesery in Australia and have invented 5 new foods never seen before in the World. We are a farmhouse cheesery which means Grandvewe exemplifies the Farm to Fork experience.

We have won the highest awards for any sheep cheesery in Australia. Our Blue cheese won Champion Cheese against 360 cheeses of Australia. We then also placed in the top six of 6000 fine food producers of Australia. We have our farm cheesery located 45 minutes south of Hobart in a place called “Birchs Bay” where we are open to the public 7 days/week 10.00 am - 5.00 pm all year. Sheep milk makes exceptional cheeses as proven recently when our Blue cheese was voted top 6 of 6000 fine food products of Australia (Australian Presidents medal). Our products are EWEnique because we control the entire process from the grass grown for the sheep to eat, milking, manufacturing, packaging, distributing and selling. This is something very few businesses can claim.  Having this total control of the entire process we can ensure the best quality of product is achieved consistently. Grandvewe has invented many food products including the world’s first Vanilla Whey Liqueur which is also a way that we reduce waste by using the bi-product of cheese making and using it in a liqueur. We are also the first company to use sheep milk in coffees. This allows many guests who are lactose intolerant the option to enjoy milk based drinks. Our most recent invention is sheep milk fudge. We only sell this currently from our cellar door and is best served with our sheep milk coffee. We have also invented Australia’s first Sheep milk Gelato which is a unique tasting experience for all markets but especially for the dairy intolerant.

Hartshorn Distillery is a new Tasmanian micro distillery making boutique batches of Vodka and Gin from our own sheep whey. We are the first in the world to create this unique product. Each bottle and label is hand painted by head distiller Ryan so you can display it proudly amongst your collection. All of our spirits are unfiltered meaning you can enjoy a spirit with more character and complexity. This year (2017) at the World Vodka awards in London,  the Sheep Whey Vodka won best Vodka in Australia.

Ryan and his family run Grandvewe Cheeses. When making cheese, the whey is often discarded and put to little use. Ryan has spent the last two years discovering how to turn the complex sugars held within the whey protein and convert them into a basic sugars to then ferment into alcohol and eventually distill. The resulting distillate has a delicately sweet bouquet and extremely smooth finish, thanks to the dairy influence and traditional ageing methods.
