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.
