Craft Works/Riverbourne ‘The Return of Vatman’ Collaboration Whisky 500ml 57.7%
A vatted malt from Riverbourne and Craftworks Distillery that only yielded 64 bottles.
Region: Capertee NSW/Jingera, NSW
Cask type: Port finish
Released: May 2021
This is the second release (micro-vatting) of Craftworks Vatman series that see’s the distillery collaborate with Marty Pye, owner and distiller of Riverbourne Distillery in Jingera, NSW. With only 64 bottles released, split between the two distilleries, demand was huge and the majority of the stock was already allocated making this quite the collectable.
Owner and distiller of Craftworks (Craig ‘Crafty’ Field) comments on this release:
“I vatted (blended) Riverbourne peaty whisky and non-peaty whisky with Craft Works Distillery stout-based whisky and created THE RETURN OF VATMAN. Very much born out of the NSW Distillers Collective idea a few years ago now. I AM… now commencing work on the next VATMAN called VATMAN RISING”
We only have a handful of bottles to sell. Limited to one per customer.
