Our tasting notes.
Full bodied and spicy. Think maple honey, peanut-butter and toasted nuts with a Sh!t load of earthen smoke.

From the progressive mind of Peter Bignell comes another batch of “Wholly Sh!t” tipping the scales at 56.5% ABV – A rye whisky smoked with sheep’s manure. In all his self-sustaining glory, Mr Bignell has taken the art of recycling and turned it up to a blistering 20! His Belgrove sheep eat the spent distillery grain and then their dry dung is burned instead of peat to produce this smoky rye-malt of feculent proportions.
A tiny allocation of this unique expression has hit the Aussie mainland and we have the lion’s share of them. It’s another abstract release that is destined to be highly collectable. Better yet, if you’re able to do so, savour it amongst friends – it’s one full bodied pour dripping in peanut-butter and maple honey with just the right amount of earth and spice. And of course, a SH!T LOAD of smoke. 😉
The first batch was released before the pandemic and word of the one-of-a-kind whisky made its way to British Chef, Gordon Ramsay who took his film crew to Tasmania to film an episode of his docuseries UNCHARTED (Season 2, Episode 1) where Peter talks him through the process of whisky making while they shovelled dung together to produce Wholly Shit.
