Official tasting notes:
The colour of a Byron Bay sunset. The palate offers soft vanilla, creme brulee and biscotti characters, layered over distinct notes of pear, coconut and buttery macadamia.
Cape Byron Distillery ‘The Original’ Bourbon Cask Batch 003 Single Malt Whisky 700ml 47%
Out of Stock
Batch 003 of Cape Byron’s signature expression that yielded 1630 bottles.
Region: Byron Bay, NSW
Cask type: Bourbon
Bottler: Cape Byron distillery
Co-created by one of Scotland’s most awarded Master Distillers, Jim McEwan (of Bowmore, Bruichladdich and Ardnahoe fame) and Cape Byron Distillery Co-founder and distiller Eddie Brook, this Australian adaptation of a classic Scottish whisky is truly remarkable and unique to the terroir of the Byron Bay region.
Aged in 200 and 300 litre bourbon casks, its whisky done right, straight off the bat with natural colour and non-chill-filtration. Cape Byron’s releases have proven extremely popular, released to rave reviews when Eddie and Jim launched their whisky at sold out events all over Australia in 2022
Co-founder and Distiller Eddie Brooks comments;
“Our whisky lives and breathes the conditions of the dense subtropical rainforest here in the hinterland of Byron Bay. Our barrels have lay wait within the rainforest and take in all of the elements throughout their maturation. We have something here that is really unique”.
Please note: The boxes are very, very thin and fragile so slight tearing/creasing may be visible on occasion on the sides of the top flap. It’s important to note that Cape Byron realised this issue early on and have since rectified the problem ordering stronger based boxes from the manufacturer for their latest batches.
