The Story

Distilled in the legendary Willowbank distillery in Dunedin. Initially aged in American Oak, ex-bourbon casks for 6 years. After being transported to Oamaru, these casks were transferred into French oak, ex-New Zealand red wine casks where they matured for an additional 12 years. To bring together this big, luscious whisky, our blenders identify casks with rich, fruity flavours, carefully marry together and settled at 50% for this 100 Proof whisky. Whether you reduce it a little further, or consume it as is, we know it’ll leave a lasting impression on your palate and have you coming back for more!

Notes

Nose Complex sweetness with layers of aromatic dried fruit and spices
