Top Malt from Down Under.

Melbourne is famous for its insane weather, where all four seasons present themselves in one day like it’s a demo. But while such changes may be obnoxious to people, they’re perfect for maturing booze. David Vitale, Melbourne native, established the Starward Distillery in 2007. He sources his barley from the nearby farms, while the maturation barrels come from vineyards in Victoria. Starward’s Whisky spends two years only in Red Wine barrels, but the crazy climate accelerates the process in "Melbourne years." Their Spirits are unique and unmistakably Aussie.

Starward Nova Malt Whisky is what a lush vision of Whisky can become. Australia, its hot climate and legendary Red Wines are carved in the DNA of this Spirit. The creators had carefully selected barrels that used to house locally made Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot. They made sure the barrels weren't charred. That way they preserved both the character of Wine and oak. The big idea behind this dram is honoring the tradition while not being trapped by it. Innovation and creativity enabled this red renegade to be as palatial as the big boys, despite its young age.

In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
The original Starward facility was actually an old flight hangar in Essendon Fields.
Melbourne’s crazy “four seasons in a day” climate means it takes a fraction of the time it takes to make Whisky in Scottish Isles or Ireland.
Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
