"An equinox occurs when day and night are of equal length due to the passage of the sun across the celestial equator. This stunning small batch expression from Amber Lane captures the magical moment when ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks are in perfect balance."

Bottled at 46% ABV, this whisky will especially please those who love a whisky full of flavour, but without the power of strong alcohol content.

Tasting notes: A glorious nose of honeyed pastries, baklava, rose water and toffee. The taste is richly opulent with raisins and honey, cinnamon, Werthers Original, vanilla and cola, with a long and satisfying finish.

Amber Lane is a whisky distillery based in the Yarramalong Valley on NSW's Central Coast. It was founded in 2017 by two amateur astronomers and friends, Rod Berry and Phil Townsend. The duo have since committed themselves to crafting excellent spirit and spared no expense in sourcing top quality, large format ex-bourbon barrels (primarily sourced from Heaven Hill) and bodega ex-Pedro Ximenez casks. 

They took their time with maturation, waiting until the whisky was ready for bottling, rather than rushing to market after the minimum 2 years. 

Amber Lane's Ethics:

  • Consistent high-quality mash bill that creates pleasing new make with an emphasis on the original barley together with a creamy sweetness
  • Double-distillation using a pot still designed to maximise copper-contact, thus producing more complex flavour chains;
  • The very best seasoned barrels, sourced from premium producers of Spanish Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry and Kentucky Bourbon;
  • Maximised ageing  to produce more complex flavour profiles, using larger barrels than many other Australian whisky producers (mainly 200-250L casks)
  • Skilled blending of individual barrels to produce consistently delicious whisky;
  • Non-chill-filtration in all expressions to preserve as many of the flavour-producing esters and congeners as possible; and
  • A conscious preference for releasing our whisky at higher alcohol strength.
