  3. Single Cask Whisky Batch No. 1: Heritage Rye Malt Whisky

A cask strength, single cask of our Riverina sourced heritage rye malt, fully matured in an Australian apera cask. A mix of wild and early commercial rye varieties cultivated in Western NSW, our heritage rye grain has a darker, smaller seed than modern conventional rye. Grown exclusively by our malting partners Voyager on their farm, this grain features an earthy, fresh rye bread aroma with a toasty and biscuity like sweetness and a classic spicy finish.

Tasting Notes


Honey-poached apricots lead the way along with rich black cherries and plums. The rich fruit is well supported by a complex spice medley of crushed ginger root, black pepper and caraway seeds.


Rich and mouth-filling layers of concentrated fruit are again evident, with the addition of some lovely gently toasted cedar and delicate violet revealing themselves.


Rich apricot and cherry continue long into the finish, with toasted cedar and violets providing the final florish

Production Notes

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.
Heritage Rye Malt
Origin: Barellan, NSW

This landrace rye has been grown in central NSW for over 70 years, adapting to droughts, floods and storms to evolve into its own distinct strain, found nowhere else on earth. Reflecting the character of regional Australia, it contributes flavours of eucalyptus, shortbread and cinnamon.

Pale Malt
Origin: La Trobe, Victoria

Our pale malt speaks to the Australian land where it was grown, delivering tropical fruit flavours with floral overtones.
