Cask type: Ex Tawny/Ex Pinot Gris
Distilled: Tin Shed Distilling Co. Distillery
Region: South Australia

The That Boutique-y Whisky team exercised sound judgment when choosing Ian Schmidt of Iniquity whisky fame to include his distillate in their first full Australian indie bottling series. Ian is a larrikin (in the best possible way) and damn great whisky maker, making this union an absolute no brainer!
This whisky was originally matured in two small Ex-Tawny Port casks, before being moved to an ex-Pinot Gris cask, a rare sight in whisky production. Being located so close to the Adelaide vineyards, Tin Shed are perfectly poised to experiment with unusual cask types such as this.
About the Label: That Boutique-y Whisky Company says it best.
“Yeah, we’ve fallen for that ‘down under’ malarky with our Tin Shed label. Everything in the picture upside down. Corny eh? That’s founder Ian ‘Schmiddy’ Schmidt with his parrot on his shoulder, standing in front of his vine covered warehouse. Schmiddy was once a flagpole salesman, so our label just HAD to have one, the brand logo flag flying proudly”
