Working with Rod and Phil from Amber Lane Distillery was a no-brainer. They are making some of the most exciting whisky in Australia at the moment, following a multiple-cask journey maturation technique learned from the Cognac and Sherry traditions of Europe. It is no wonder that every single Amber Lane whisky release in 2023 won either a national or international gold medal.

Our whisky has been Double Sherry Cask matured - first in a French Oak Apera cask before being moved to an American Oak Oloroso cask from one of the most formidable sherry producers in Spain.

It has then had a short but powerful finish in an American Oak Tempranillo cask from acclaimed NSW producer Vinden Wines, which produces minimal-intervention, award-winning wines from organically farmed, family-owned vineyards and has been a 5 Red Star Winery in the world-famous James Halliday wine guide for the last 3 years.

We have used a 3rd Fill American Oak Bourbon cask as a settling cask to bring all the flavours together, resulting in a complex, sweet and savoury whisky that demands peaceful contemplation.
