Boutique Tasmanian distillery Battery Point releases first whisky

Tasmanian distillery Battery Point has released its first whisky, limited to just 200 bottles.

Created by a small, patient and creative team, the product is a combination of port, sherry and bourbon small cask whiskey. It is then aged in an apple brandy barrel before being finished in a muscatel.

Sourced from selected premium Tasmanian malt mash, unique yeast and Tasmanian water, Battery Point whisky combines traditional distillation methods of Scotland with a small cask and barrel.

“With whisky, you aren’t reinventing the wheel – it’s still all made with the same three ingredients, but we really took our time over selecting the best of those ingredients,” said Jack Lark, Battery Point distiller.

“We’re a small team and so we’re not rushing to get things out. Everything is by hand and we refuse to cut corners – we will only release the best quality barrels and the best quality spirits.”

The bottle’s packaging design is inspired by the details of the whisky barrel, expressing the boldness and sophistication of the product and combining tradition with modernity.

The Battery Whisky will be sold for $325 per 500ml bottle through wholesale or direct sale.
