Tasting Notes


Incredibly complex, intertwining sun-dried raisins, bush honey, and apricots with subtle undertones of eucalypt, sandalwood, and hazelnut butter.


Silky at the onset, unveiling glacé cherries and dried orange zest that smoothly transition into a deep, expansive mid-palate boasting rockmelon, roasted pecans, and dried jasmine flowers.


A prolonged and intricate interplay between cask and spirit concludes with a crescendo of milk chocolate, bush honey, and lingering incense.

Local & Ethically Sourced Ingredients

Our Head Distiller Dave Withers has a personal connection to these casks through his father’s stories. “I have a clear memory of my dad passing on stories he heard about fortified wine barrels being made from native eucalyptus timbers in the 1930s. Many years later, I heard from one of our coopers about a small parcel of wine casks that had an oddly red colour to the timber.

I called my dad right away and told him what I had discovered. ‘Wow,’ he said. ‘That’s a piece of Australian history. Get those casks!”
