Where to find Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt Whisky
Driven by our thirst for discovery, the new Trials & Exceptions Series uncovers our most exceptional single casks and small batch trials, offering first-hand insights into the raw ingredients, processes and people involved in the production of our whisky, gin, vodka, rum and other spirits.
The inaugural release in this series, Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt Whisky highlights our stance that a great whisky starts its life in the field, not the distillery. It also showcases our continuing journey with Australian rye, supporting and working with local farmers and maltsters to produce uniquely Australian varieties.
Featuring a malted landrace rye sourced from fourth-generation NSW farmers, this grain has grown continuously near Sandigo NSW for over 60 years, adapting to weather including droughts, floods and storms to evolve into its own distinct strain.
We’ve decided to release Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt with no traditional commercial rye malt in the mash bill so whisky lovers can appreciate the individuality, clarity and strength of this grain, supporting our view that malt really matters as a key contributor to the final whisky. Raw and less refined it offers notes of signature creme caramel, banana and black tea, finishing with expansive spice notes of ginger, cinnamon and cardamom.
Want to get your hands on Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt Whisky? It’s stocked at these bottles shops from early April 2020. As always, be sure to contact the bottle shop ahead of visiting to ensure that stock has landed.
Please note: Due to the difficulty in keeping up with online demand, we have limited stock available at our cellar door. Our spirits, bottled cocktails and merchandise continue to be available for takeaway at the Archie Rose Bar, however.
Despite the very strange times wrought by COVID-19 we hope this whisky provides some comfort over coming weeks and months: to be savoured in your own good company and served the way you like.
