Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt Whisky

Product of Sydney
Australia

The first release in our Trials & Exceptions 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.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Appearance

Amber with copper highlights.

Nose

A tension between savoury and sweet. There is a distinctly Australian eucalyptus oil and damper note that sits against a background of sea breeze, caramel eclairs, violets and plum jam. The spirit stands tall with mandarin, persimmon and whole peppercorns.

Palate

A full delivery with signature creme caramel, banana and black tea.

Finish

An expansive spice with ginger, cinnamon, clove and cardamom. A touch of coriander seed lingers.

Grain Sourced

A spirit is only as good as the materials used to make it. Great effort has been taken to showcase the unique qualities of the malt used in this whisky. We are putting malt back on the agenda.

Distillation

Distillation

Double distilling in copper pot stills has allowed the flavour of the malts to be expressed. Distillation cuts are taken by nose and palate ensuring that flavour is always placed ahead of efficiency.

Maturation

Maturation

Using only American oak which has been air-dried for 36 months, toasted and charred in a diversity of styles allows fantastic complexity and balance to be achieved. Carefully uniting the individual casks of whisky requires great skill. Understanding how to make flavours cooperate is how inspiring whiskies are crafted.
