Out of Stock

Batch No: 1
Cask Type: FO-Shiraz
Bottling Date: 9th of August 2020
This Backwoods Distilling Co. rye whisky, first release sold out at the distillery in 24 hours. Handcrafted in the Victorian High Country, the Distillery hopes ….. “you’ll be transported to the backwoods of Yackandandah with this unique Australian Rye whisky”.
The mash bill contains 60% malted rye, which delivers an earthy and ginger spice character. Then 25% pale malt barley, 10% wheat and a small amount of chocolate malt (approx. 5%), all added to tame the rye with their sweetness, nuttiness and creaminess. The new-make spirit was then laid to rest in two French Oak casks that previously held Australian Shiraz from the Barossa Valley with the rich rye character standing firm amongst the sweetness of the cask.
