Melbourne born and bred, Starward founder David Vitale began with a simple vision; to create a distinctly Australian Whisky to offer the world with pride. In 2007 it all started with curiosity and the impetus to try, trial and taste.

Australia has arguably some of the best red Wine barrels in the world in their ‘backyard’ and with the quality of ingredients and materials available within a day’s drive from Melbourne, Starward tried something new and never looked back.

They currently have a Wine Cask (crowned Best Craft Distilled Whisky in the world in 2016) and a Solera single malt Whisky (solely matured in Australian fortified Wine barrels), barrel-aged (New) Old Fashioned and Red Manhattan cocktails, and a Two-Fold Double Grain Whisky.
