Released on 14 November 2019.
Ironbark Smoked Rye Malt Whisky is our second limited edition whisky release, drawn from seven casks as the fifth release under the Archie Rose Concepts label, reserved for our rarest and most experimental products.
A sequel release to our Smoked Gin launched in March 2019, Ironbark Smoked Rye Malt Whisky features smoked water created by melting huge blocks of ice in the wood-fired oven of our neighbouring mates, Three Blue Ducks, using sustainably sourced NSW ironbark.
In creating this whisky Master Distiller, Dave Withers, explored using varying amounts of smoked water at a range of different alcoholic strengths, settling on an atypically low 40% ABV in order to best highlight the water-soluble smoked notes. At this lower ABV the decision was then made to release Ironbark Smoked Rye Malt Whisky flocked, completely unfiltered and including its natural haze and char remnants. The release of this cloudy, and historically considered “faulty” spirit aims to start the conversation about the role, type and extent of filtration in whisky production, and how it can be used to both add to and detract from a finished spirit and drinking experience. Learn more about Ironbark Smoked Rye Malt Whisky and Archie Rose’s view on filtration in whisky production here.
We invite you to enjoy our Ironbark Smoked Rye Malt Whisky in the spirit it was created: to be savoured in good company and served the way you like.
