Bottled@ 50% – 500ml – Batch 1 – Only 132 Bottles Produced – Single Malt – NSW, AU
Matured in a re-charred ex-Australian wine cask this Riverbourne single malt is clean, complex and carefully balanced. Riverbourne favour ‘less active’ casks, aiming to encourage the development of complex, carefully balanced flavour profiles. Their whiskies are steadily growing in popularity across Australia.
The distillery is run by Australia’s oldest distiller, Martin Pye, a third generation pharmacist. Martin utlises a wide range of yeast strains, and matures in carefully managed, re-charred ex-wine casks which let the spirit speak.
About the Label
There’s a ‘whack-a-mole’ feel to this label, but instead of moles, its wombats.
The distillery is surrounded by holes dug by burrowing wombats, they’ve even managed to dig into one of the sheds used for maturation.
Our Wombats all look very much like movie villains. They’ve been busy pilfering the distillery equipment too
It’s Whack-a-Wombat time at Riverbourne, and one has just been clobbered. He’s seeing stars!
