A unique single malt crafted from the distillery’s Original profile whisky combined with a subtle pinch of Peated spirit. The omnipresent citrus tones remain with an alluring hint of burnt Australian bush presenting on the nose. A vanilla sweetness complicates the palate while the creamy aftertaste is confused by a gentle waft of smoke.hellyersroaddistillery.com.au
A fresh juniper forward dry gin, with traditional and native botanicals. There's spice from nutmeg and cassia, savoury notes from grains of paradise and Thai red ginger. The clean finish is juniper and bright citrus from native finger limes and coriander.www.thecraftandco.com.au
A deep, dark amber with Christmas cake and aged barrel rancio characters, opening up into espresso, cacao and dark chocolate, dried apricot and dates. Aged for a minimum of 40 years with the oldest component distilled in 1970.stagnesdistillery.com.au
With a delectable front palate packed full of caramel, spiced oak and toffee apple notes, this outstanding 5 year old rum then gives way to its honey, oak and lingering floral characters. Handcrafted with the utmost care and precision, it has been expertly aged first in ex brandy vats then finished in ex bourbon barrels.www.beenleighrum.com.au
White Dog Malt Spirit comes straight off the still and is the essence of their single malt whisky. Distinctively aromatic and full-bodied, with generous grain and cereal notes of Australian malted barley, wonderful in a whisky buck or Old fashion cocktail.manlyspirits.com.au
Juniper berries and coriander seeds are steeped in Suter & Sons premium Vodka for at least 24 hours before distillation in a custom pot still. A smooth, warming and pleasant spirit that lingers. Enjoyed on it’s own or in your favourite gin-based cocktail.suterandsons.com
