100 litre custom cask made from ex-bourbon barrel staves and seasoned with local Victorian apple brandy.
The mash bill for this whisky is 100% triticale with a biscuit roast applied to 30% of it. The triticale is from Voyager Malt and is a hybrid of wheat (Triticum) and Rye (Secale). This hybrid grain was created in Germany during the early 1800s and gives the whisky a fascinating twist, blending the bold and robust characteristics of Rye with the subtle flavors inherited from Wheat.
Firsts all round for the distillery but a very considered approach in the unique mash bill and how the spirit will interact with the custom cask.
