It's here! Ardnamurchan have released their very first single malt and it's been express air-freighted into Australia to align with the global release roll out. One of the most exciting new distilleries to come out of Scotland in the past decade, it's one we've been following very closely here at The Oak Barrel and one we're excited to offer.
The brainchild of the team behind indpendent bottlers Adelphi, we've been lucky enough to try a range of cask samples and progress reports in the past three years via tastings and 'Spirit' releases. Now we're going to be able to sample their first official whisky, a single malt defined by the west coast location the distillery is situated in.
It is also home to some of the most sustainable practices in Scotch whisky while also embracing modern blockchain technologies to track provenance and provide transperancy in all their products.
We're delighted to confirm that we'll be welcoming Founder Alex Bruce and Sales Manager Connal Mackenzie back to The Oak Barrel (albeit virtually) to share the new release and some very special single cask samples.
We'll be calling in with them Wednesday 25 November at 8pm, Sydney time.
The pack contains four 50ml samples, one of which is the inaugural single malt release alongside three single cask samples.
The tasting is free to attend virtually and watch, while you can also purchase the tasting pack that we'll be sampling from here.
HOW THE EVENT WILL WORK
This is a virtual tasting, with tasting packs to be sent out around Australia. Those who have registered for the event will be sent a link prior to the event in order to join the Zoom chat on which the tasting will be held.
Anyone who purchases a pack will be sent a Zoom link the day of the event.
If you don't want to use Zoom, everyone is welcome to follow along on either The Oak Barrel's Facebook or YouTube pages as well as on oakbarrel.com.au/live.
