This Kinglake single malt whisky is named ‘O’Grady’s Stand’ in honour of Ellen O’Grady, the owner of the land in 1906 where the distillery sits today. She was dragged kicking and screaming by parliament protesting that Kinglake should grow produce, not be hollowed out in the quest for Gold.
This whisky has a mash-bill of four different malts, three from Griffiths NSW, one of which is roasted to chocolate, together with a heavily peated malt from the Scottish borders in the UK. The cuts are deep to create the heavy, oily spirit the distillery desires, before the spirit was laid to rest in a number of ex-bourbon barrels from Kentucky, re-coopered here in Australia.
