Our barrels are made of new american oak, sourced from a cooperage in Kentucky, USA, who source the oak from a single forest.

They are heavily toasted with specific varying char levels – a formula we developed after years of trialling different combinations.

100% Australian grown unmalted rye

Our whiskey is made using 100% Australian grown unmalted rye from a single farm in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia, one of the driest regions of the driest country in the world. Specifically chosen for its harsh climate, the rye from this area is small and dense – renowned for its distinct, extraordinary flavour and is unmatched by rye from other areas.
