Whisky Gone A Rye #2 is a special edition of our Rye Malt Whisky matured in Australian apera casks and the sixteenth release in our Trials & Exceptions series. The Australian apera casks used to age this spirit were destined for maturing our Single Malt Whisky, but by happy accident, the 100 and 200-litre casks were instead filled with Rye Malt Whisky not once but three times. After the success of Whisky Gone A Rye #1, which was released in November 2021, we’re excited to share with you the second batch of this unique and limited whisky style.

Tasting Notes


Greeted by luscious honey-poached peaches, pecan and ginger snaps. A second visit reveals violets, raisins and toffee apple.


A densely weighted palate filled with plums, candied orange and figs, transitioning into vanilla creme brulee and maple coated muesli.


A long and lingering medley of orchard fruits, beautifully balanced with sweet baking spices and a touch of drying oak.

Production Notes

Grain Sourced

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.

Australian Rye Malt
Origin: Victoria

A regional rye grain grown in the south-eastern states of Australia which is then sprouted and dried to lend complexity and refinement to the whisky, while showcasing flavours of ripe stone fruits.

Apera Cask
Origin: Australia

Australian apera is a fortified wine similar to Spanish sherry. It's used to season American or French Oak casks, offering a flavour profile that's usually made up of nutty and dried fruit notes like figs and prunes.
