No regrets about trying this place and it was worth a little stop off for a glass of wine before dinner, but there is no doubt the focus is on whisky and spirits in there. That’s ok - just not what we were seeking!
It’s fun to have a drink in the old bank surrounded by a plethora of goods that very sadly wouldn’t fit in the suitcase.....
Appreciation to the fellow who stayed open much longer than the sign on the door indicated.

Rare and fabulous find
Jun 2021
A treasure trove of whisky, high-end, sustainable woolens that last a lifetime, and the fabulous knowledge and company of born and bred the local owner's Sam and Louise and their son Will.
I could have stayed by the fire all day tasting whisky. The attention to detail and ambiance is a top 10 experience in Tasmania.

This store is a whishy tasting store with woollen items also for sale.
The whisky tastings start at $6 a sample. The woollen items were grossly overpriced.
It was cluttered and not inviting.

Surprised and hurt by your review, Elaine. We pride ourselves on stocking ethical, high quality, luxury knitwear that you will wear forever. It is sold at the recommended retail price, not a cent more. The reaction from the vast majority of people that enter our store, is 'wow, what a beautiful shop.' I don't think you appreciate how devastating it is to a small family business, who work 7 days a week, to receive reviews such as yours. Thanks Elaine, you made our day.

A great find in Stanley
Apr 2021
A must to visit when you're in Stanley. Gorgeous clothing and jewellery, however, if whisky and gin are more your style - you cannot go past a tasting of some of the fabulous Tassie examples!

Visited this uniquely Tasmanian tasting shop. Very reasonable prices for the tastings, and wines. Informative, personalised service. Would highly recommend if you like whiskies. Not good for kids.

Excellent selection of Tasmanian whisky and gin
Jan 2021
A great find - one of a number of high quality boutique shops in this picturesque town. We enjoyed trying a range of whiskys and gins before dinner at the pub (also excellent). Enjoyed chatting to the different staff during our two visits. This stop should be on every visitors afternoon or pre-dinner itinerary!

Have been busting to visit The Angel’s Share for a long time and finally made it. I most certainly was not disappointed. Something for everyone. First class whiskies, gins and well selected local craft beers. Looking forward to my next visit and definitely won’t be waiting as long as I did first time around.

A gem in Stanley
Feb 2020
What a gem this place is! Apart from quality fashions and souvenirs it's a showcase for Tassie whisky and gin, with a large range to "sample". I use commas because the days of rolling up "trying" lots of small drinks with the inferred promise to buy one and then getting back sloshed on the bus to "think about it" well, those days died long ago along with the dodo!

We stayed a week in Stanley and visited Angel's Share five times for a nip or three on the way to dinner. All three owners, Sam, Louise and their son Will are very knowledgeable about their products, but of course Will is still at his young age an apprentice - though a very accomplished one. He knows more than almost all of his customers!

We tasted lots and learned lots! We also witnessed other customers come to sample and most were equally impressed. We were there with Will as host when a snooty wannabe couple and their purported tour guide, equally snobby, wanted to try some gins. Their manner of asking suggested they did not expect to pay for their tastings. We were amused to see the three of them trying to savour a half- nip over ice. - so 5 ml each at the outrageous cost of $2.50! Meanwhile the tour guide read through a large tourism book as though in the library reading room rather than in a shop that SELLS books! We didn't have to pay to watch these silly people "perform" but confirms to me what I always thought - that the customer isn't always right!

This shop and its owners are terrific. Highly recommended!
