Who is Bad Frankie?
Bad Frankie is named after the infamous Governor of Van Diemen’s Land, John Franklin, who outlawed small pot stills in the early 19th Century. Unfortunately, this law was written into national law when the country was federated.
It wasn’t until 150 years later when the ‘grandfather of Australian spirits’ Bill Lark overturned the law and had started to produce his own whisky. From Bill, the industry has expanded exponentially and continues to do so into a range of Australian spirits, whiskey, gin, vodka, liqueurs and so on.
