Beginning / A fruity, double distilled single malt made with Australian barley and craft brewers’ yeast for extra flavour.
Middle / Lightly charred or steamed barrels sourced from Australian wineries making great shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. Often filled fresh when the barrel is still wet with wine. Matured in Melbourne’s wildly varied climate for three years.
End / Exceptional length thanks to the red wine barrels. Bright aromatic notes of red berries, orchard fruits, vanilla, caramel and soft oak spice.
Future / Smooth and complex when sipped neat. Shines in classic cocktails. Works exceptionally well with food.
