Backwoods Distilling Co. Batch #2 Single Malt Whisky 500ml 55%
Out of Stock
The distillery’s first single cask release that yielded approx. 70 bottles.
Region: Yackandandah, Victoria
Batch No: 2
Cask Type: 100L FO/Red Wine
Cask No: 13
Bottling Date: 29th of September 2020
This Backwoods single malt second release sold out at the distillery in 24 hours.
Cask #13 began its life in the Barossa region hosting red wines, before finding its way to the Backwoods bond store. Leigh and Bree Atwood (owners and distillers at Backwoods) then filled the cask with their signature single malt spirit at 63.5% ABV. Then six months before decanting, they added water to lower the ABV to 55%. The distillery chooses this technique to explore how different ABVs interact with the cask during maturation. The result was so impressive, they knew this had to be their first single cask release.
The distillery decided to release two different ABV’s from the single Cask #13. 55% alc and 46% alc (also available on our virtual shelves)
