AUSTRALIAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY

TASTING NOTES

Colour is golden amber. Elegant aromas of toffee, lifted fruit and delicate vanillin oak trail into an evocative hint of wine cellar. The palate is full and lightly sweet, with citrus and apricot, bedtime malted milk, and a finish of butterscotch oak and lingering warmth.

AUSTRALIAN SINGLE MALT WHISKY

Our third all Australian Whisky release: the youngster stretches its legs. This is the distiller’s art of mastery plus patience, wrought in copper and oak for a minimum of 3 years. Whispers of Kangaroo Island’s rippling barley fields, and the purifying heights of six-metre stills. Remembrances of golden Riverland summers. Savour with all your senses.  

METHOD

We start with arguably the world’s finest barley, ripened in the sunshine and pure air of Kangaroo Island on South Australia’s coast. The grain is malted and roasted to release optimum sugars and enzymes. Adding only water, yeast and time, our base liquor is created. Distillation uses both our heritage copper pot stills 1 and 2. Runs and multiple cuts are kept separate for many options to age and assess. A portion is blended at this stage and given a third distillation, imparting additional fruit complexity, our master distillers have selected from a rich palette of American oak ex-bourbon barrels to mature the many individual whisky portions. With three years in the Riverland’s warm summers and low humidity, around 7% is lost for the ‘Angel’s share’ per annum. The final sampling and blending process, it must be admitted, is not a tough day at the office.

PHOTOGRAPH

Florencia Schvimer

Florencia Schvimer is an Argentinian photographer living in Sydney, Australia. She studied Multimedia Design at Escuela Da Vinci (Buenos Aires) and also specialised in photography through multiple courses. 

Florencia draws inspiration from nature and the outdoors, as well as other diverse sources such as paintings, music, books and writing. Her aim is to create intimacy between the audience and her work through the use of light and composition across the narrative of her images. It is within this intimacy, that lies the idea of isolating the elements from an abstract perspective to see how they behave on their own and with the viewer.

Her work has been exhibited in Berlin, Sydney and Buenos Aires and she is currently working on portraying the Australian flora and landscape.

The image featured on the Australian Single Malt Whisky is captured on Kangaroo Island, the home of where the barley grows that makes this Whisky.
