The second in our monthly virtual tasting series: we're excited to confirm that Black GateJoadjaCorowa and Remnant will feature as part of the November 2020 Aussie Whisky Get Together.

The Aussie Whisky Get Together is a series of virtual tasting by The Oak Barrel featuring whisky distillers from all over the country. Whisky samples are packaged up into gift boxes - thanks to the excellent team at Nip Of Courage - and sent around Australia so you can drink along and share a dram amongst the stories. Whiskies featured are often new releases or special and limited editions.

November 2020 Features

Black Gate, New South Wales

Our friends from the mighty NSW Central West, we'll take a look at their most recent release - the August 2020 bottling of their Apera Vatting. Created from three barrels and with 634 bottles in the release, it's the biggest ever (which just goes to show how micro their previous ones have been).

Remnant, Tasmania

From the ashes of a dark period of modern Tasmanian whisky history, a bright spark. A consortium, led by Belgrove's Peter Bignell, have purchased a number of casks that had been in limbo from an investment scheme collapse and vatted them together to create the Remnant Whisky Company's first release "The Scoundrel".

Corowa, New South Wales

It's been a bizarre year for Corowa on the New South Wales-Victoria border, but luckily they've had a few excellent single cask releases to enjoy. The latest is cask #250 - a bourbon/red wine treatment that is the latest in their run of peated releases.

Joadja, New South Wales

One of the few paddock-to-bottle whisky distilleries in the world, we're going to sample the magnificent Batch 10 cask strength - a two cask vatting that sees the distillery step away from their usual sherry cask penchant. At 62.9% it's a true representation of the distillery and their home-grown barley.

Pack Contains: 

30ml Black Gate Apera Vatting 47%
30ml Remnant "The Scoundrel" 44%
30ml Corowa Single Cask #250 62.2%
30ml Joadja Batch 10 62.9%

HOW THE EVENT WILL WORK

This is a virtual tasting and discussion, with tasting packs to be sent out around Australia. Packs will be dispatched from Monday 26 October. Please order prior to Thursday 29 October to ensure delivery in time for the tasting.

We will then bring the distillers into a video call from around Australia, which will be streamed live The Oak Barrel's Facebook or YouTube pages as well as on oakbarrel.com.au/live

The packs - put together by our friends at Nip Of Courage - will include the whisky samples. All you need at home is a glass (or four) to pour them into. Head here if you need more glassware.
