Rye Malt Whisky 1st Batch

Product of Sydney
Australia

To create this truly unique whisky, we selectively sourced rare malted rye and the finest malted barley from progressive malt houses, paired them with virgin American oak casks air-dried for 36 months and let it all mature in the maritime air of coastal Sydney.

Our preference for malted rye over the far more commonly used unmalted rye affords this whisky a point of distinction evident upon the very first sip. This layered, aromatic spirit offers notes of spiced custard, ginger, stone fruit and baked apple pie with a fresh herbal finish that lingers on the palate.

We invite you to enjoy our Rye Malt Whisky in the spirit it was created: to be savoured in good company and served the way you like.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Appearance

Amber with copper highlights.

Nose

A tantalising tension between sweet and savoury. Transports you to a carpenter’s workshop by the coast with the aroma of vanilla eclairs and sherbet. A second pass continues with sun-dried apricots, muesli and rice pudding. Time in the glass reveals cola, creaming soda and toffee.

Palate

Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce.

Finish

A subtle combination of caraway seed with sweet spices. A hint of salinity balances the sweetness.

Production Notes

Grain Sourced

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.
