The Remnant Whisky Company – ‘The Scoundrel’ Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky 500ml 44%
Out of Stock
First Release Independent Bottling!
Region: From Bothwell to Kempton, Tas
Type: Independent bottling
Cask type: French & American Oak
Release date: August 2020
Here’s the first independent bottling release from The Remnant Whisky company that was formed in January 2020 by Peter Bignell (Belgrove Distillery), his son Dane, and their associates. Together, they bought nearly 300 full barrels of Nant whisky from investors stung by the failed buy-back scheme under the previous owner of Nant, and put together a rescue deal to purchase the barrels, setting out to blend and bottle whisky that almost never saw the light of day.
The result is ‘The Scoundrel’ single malt whisky, a marriage of French and American oak that is the talk of the Australian whisky scene. Bottled at an easy-drinking 44% ABV, the whisky is a showcase of Tasmanian flavour and what can be achieved when cooler heads prevail in the midst of a controversial stain on the Australian whisky industry.
