The first release from South Australiaâ€™s Fleurieu for 2019 â€“ a cask strength, sherry release with distilleryâ€™s trademark character.
Fountain Of Youth takes its name from the distillery logo. Matured in Australian apera (sherry) casks, this has been bottled at 53.3% with 440 bottles in the release.
The sherry fruit is prominent but the finish also boasts the salted caramel â€˜house styleâ€™.
Nose: Sherry and sweet stone fruit.
Palate: Vanilla, almond and dried fruits.
Finish: Long salted caramel and toffee.
Fountain Of Youth received a Gold Medal and was named Champion Australian Whisky at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards 2019.
Fleurieu Distillery is located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, south of the stateâ€™s capital Adelaide. Also the home of the Steam Exchange Brewery, the Goolwa site of GR Andrews & Sons has quietly been distilling whisky in recent years. The distillery first came to the knowledge of the national whisky community in 2017 after their first releases were very well received by locals.
Double distilled on site from Australian barley, the barrels are also matured on site in close proximity to the southern coast.
