Spirit Of Munro 2020

To celebrate and support the Indian Motorcycle community’s ambitious plans for setting a new Rally World Record, we were delighted to be partnering with the family of Burt Munro and Chris Keeble in launching the 2nd release of “The Spirit of Munro”.

South Island Single Malt

“You would be forgiven for thinking this was a 30 or even 35-year-old Speysider: almost a grassy maltiness melding into the light, exotic fruit and freshly chopped celery. Clean, delicate and elegant beyond words.”

About Us

Distilling in New Zealand goes back to the earliest Scottish settlers in 1838, a time when the distilling industry thrived in New Zealand, particularly in Dunedin and the surrounding Otago region. By the 1870s, government influence saw many close down.

The Oamaruvian

New Zealand whisky evangelists and winemakers Warren and Deb Preston identified Oamaru’s historic Harbour Precinct as an ideal seaside climate for whisky maturation. Next, they did something profound. They decanted over 200 barrels of Dunedin distilled single grain whisky out of American bourbon barrels and into French oak NZ wine barrels. The Dunedin DoubleWood was born. Eight years on, The New Zealand Whisky Collection is proud to present The Oamaruvian – specially selected casks chosen for their rich toffee, floral nose and creaming soda mouth-feel with a hint of Oamaru sea spray to finish.
