October 2020 Featured:
The famous Tasmanian distillery is now back under family ownership! Jane and Mark Sawford will take us through a remarkable year for the distillery and what the future holds. From Overeem we'll be tasting the latest cask of their Port Cask Matured expression.
Iniquity, South Australia
Back on our screens is South Australia's happiest distiller - Ian Schmidt. Co-founder and owner of Tin Shed Distillery, they produce Iniquity single malt. We're very lucky to be previewing a new release from the Anomaly Series - The Merlot. Our first chance to try this, this is a release that we expect to see hit the market mid-to-late October this year.
Spring Bay, Tasmania
One of Tassie's best kept secrets, we've locked in star distiller Dean Jackson to talk about a new release from their Wine Cask Matured series - a Chardonnay/Apera matured expression. For us one of the most consistent 'new' Tassie distilleries, this sounds very interesting on the label and we certainly are excited to try anything Dean's had his hands on.
5Nines, South Australia
A brand new distillery which would have launched at Sydney Whisky Fair 2020 if it were to go ahead, distilled David Pearse has selected a single cask from their 'Select Cask' series for their first tasting with The Oak Barrel. A French oak, ex-pinot noir cask - this is just barrel #60 from the distillery's output.
Oak Barrel Tasting Packs
The Oak Barrel has been running a number of virtual tastings throughout 2020, connecting lovers of great drinks from around Australia and the world. While these sell out, we do keep some tasting packs back for presenters or as ‘emergency’ back-ups (in case things go missing or get damaged in transit).
We’re now releasing those extra packs, which contain some truly outstanding and premium drams, for sale and you can re-live the live tasting below.
