12-year old Single Malt Whisky from Australia?
Hellyers Road Distillery produces single malt whisky in northern Tasmania near Havenview.
General Manager Mark Littler and Production Manager Greg Deal of Hellyers Road travelled to Italy to IC Filling Systems plants, to take delivery of their new bottling line for whisky and vodka, accompanied by Giovanni Solferini and Emiro Russo of IC Filling Systems.
A special finish of the filler in AISI 316L stainless steel with a sprayballs cleaning system allows Hellyers Road Distillery to also fill Whisky Cream Liqueurs.
The new bottling line is capable of producing 1,500 bottles per hour on 700 ml round bottles, and will fill from 50 ml miniatures to 1 litre bottles. In total, 7 different bottle formats will be handled. The filler is configured as a 12 rinser, 12 filling valves, and single head metal ROPP capper, plus a single head T cork capper.
A combi unit will apply both the tin capsules and also 2 labels on the round bottles with a date coder incorporated into the labelling machine.
A carton former with a carton sealer with a manual packing area complete the line.
Mark and Greg were delighted with the high quality of their new automated line, which is now in transit by sea to Tasmania, and which will allow them to double their bottling speed.
