About Whipper Snapper Distillery

Established in 2014 by two young passionate whiskey drinkers, brother in-law’s Alasdair Malloch and Jimmy McKeown. WSD was born from an idea shared that a new era of Australian whiskey could be crafted with its own identity, redefined, whilst still being authentic, quality whiskey helping to shape the future of the Aussie distilling industry.

Our journey starts with the relentless pursuit to create the perfect Australian whiskey. As pioneers in this field, Whipper Snapper Distillery hand-craft a range of premium, authentic craft whiskeys, set to redefine our perception, and inspire a new generation. As Western Australia’s first urban distillery, we are passionate about using local West Australian grains and highlighting innovation and sustainability.

The significance of provenance shapes our award-winning and now world’s best whiskies. As a true craft distillery, everything is created on-site in East Perth. We also boast a specialty coffee bar, an eclectic tasting room and a team of passionate whiskey lovers who are excited to share their stories with you. Open seven days visit us or book a tour or masterclass experience online. Share our passion and join the journey of local craft whiskey.

“The future of Australian whiskey is ahead of us, and we plan to be at the forefront, embracing innovation while respecting tradition.” Founders – Jimmy and Al.


About Chocolatier Nakamura

When I was a girl my father returned from Paris to Tokyo bearing a gift of chocolates. Sharing them with family and friends was a joy I will never forget. I want others to have this experience: setting eyes on a beautiful box, opening it to marvel at the exquisite jewels within and then tasting wonderful flavours that give pure pleasure. I hope to bring you some happiness.

“Chocolate making is my craft and the act of making each individual piece with my own hand means I can share my passion with you.”

Chocolates are a joy of life.  Each piece embodies centuries of tradition, expressed by the skill and personal touch of the chocolate artisan. The experience of a chocolate is not only of luxury and superb ingredients, but also of beautiful packaging and the practice of true service. So much do I believe in these values as a chocolatier, that I have used my most precious symbols to guarantee them: my family name and crest.
