100L American Oak with 20L Tokay Finish – 200 Bottles Only.
Golden amber in color. A flavorful whisky with intense fruit and spice.
Sweet, woody aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, toffee, vanilla custard, caramelized apples and dusty straw, tea with a chewy, vibrant, and fruity full body. Peppery spices, and oak spice finish. The palate is sweet initially, with notes of citrus fruits, clean wood and youthful maltiness. The stickiness from the wood finish then begins to unfold, chocolate coated almonds and burnt sugar before coming to a soft floral note and then you are left with a toffee note on the finish.
500mL | Alc Vol 44%
The distillery is a family business using family labour and occasional part-time local help, depending on seasonal requirements. All the base ingredients for the spirits are sourced locally.
Artisan, small craft distilling is making a comeback internationally after many decades of dominance by large distillery production with limited brands. For instance in the US and Europe a new generation of distillers with diverse, high quality products has emerged. In Australia, the industry is small but developing a strong international reputation. In Tasmania there are 8 registered distilleries (Lark, Nant, Sullivan’s Cove and Hellyers Road Distillery to name a few).
Tasmania now has more distilleries than Ireland and the whiskies are earning serious kudos overseas.
The craft method of distillation means everything is hand-made. Every brand, every bottling reflects the creative individuality of a single human being, working with small, hand-operated equipment: their quirks and insights, their special talents, their innovations.
Every spirit represented by Craft Distillers is based on rigorous, old-fashioned, hands-on pot-distillation methods. Craft methods of distillation are an antidote to all those commoditized large-production spirits. This is about authenticity, personal attention, real ingredients, and love of one’s work. These products are real – and very few distilled spirits can make this claim.
