Iconic Australian Whisky meets iconic Australian Wine.

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 Octave Barrels Single Malt Australian Whisky was shaped by iconic Australian Red Wine. The bold flavors of Yalumba’s Shiraz make this pinnacle of Australian Whisky mastery a very intense and deliciously different Whisky. Aged in Yalumba’s The Octavius Shiraz 100L octave-sized barrels, the interactions between wood and whisky were intense. This results in elegant flavors of this distinct Australian Wine that translate into aromas of raisin, ripe peach, and caramel that mingle with red and dark forest fruit characters. Savor this one neat, on the rocks, or, use it as a base in high-end craft cocktails.

The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
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.
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.
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.
