For this expression, Australia’s beloved ‘Grumpy Old Man’ and third generation pharmacist, Martin Pye; owner and distiller of Riverbourne distillery, has provided TBWC with his carefully crafted new-make spirit to work their maturation magic on. Laid to rest for 3 years in re-charred American Oak and French Oak casks, this Riverbourne single malt is clean, complex and carefully balanced.
Riverbourne favour ‘less active’ casks, aiming to encourage the development of complex, carefully balanced flavour profiles. As Martin Pye always says….. “It’s like Angels dancing on your tongue”.
We’re offering these beauties at limited to one per Customer as one of the most anticipated Australian independent releases ever to grace our sun-drenched shores!
About the Label:
That Boutique-y Whisky Company says it best.
“There’s a ‘whack-a-mole’ feel to this label, but instead of moles, its wombats. The distillery is surrounded by holes dug by burrowing wombats, they’ve even managed to dig into one of the sheds used for maturation. Owner Martin Pye comments. “Our Wombats all look very much like movie villains. They’ve been busy pilfering the distillery equipment too. It’s Whack-a-Wombat time at Riverbourne, and one has just been clobbered. He’s seeing stars!”.
