As you know, it is a strong tradition that when a Warship commissions, the crew and other important stakeholders are given the privilege of owning a momento which represents the celebration of her commissioning. In previous years, this has been various items such as a bottle of port, a watch, a hat and even a sword. Since NUSHIP Hobart is seeking to continue its proud relationship with Tasmania, the crew has selected a bottle of ten year old single malt scotch whisky from a Tasmanian based distillery as the commissioning memento. The bottles will be personalised with Hobart’s commissioning date, ship’s crest, and inlcude a brief description of the history of HMAS Hobart. The aim is for the distillery to produce a limited amount of bottles, each individually numbered which adds to the rarity of these bottles.
Therefore, it is with great pleasure to offer you and your members the opportunity of purchasing one of these personalised commissioning bottles of whisky. The price will be $135 per bottle. We are expecting the bottles to be ready by the end of the year.
If you wish to purchase a bottle please provide your details for the list below and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
