A port cask expression from Fleurieu that celebrates the maritime influences of coastally-matured whisky.
There are 460 bottles at 52.9% for this expression, which received a Gold Medal at the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards 2019.
From the distillers, “The nose is heavily influenced by the port casks, hints of cinnamon, soy sauce, soft citrus fruitiness and lingering barley sugar flavours mixed with a hint of vanilla ice cream at the end. Message In A Bottle is all about the balance of softness, texture, malty flavours and just the right amount of oak.”
Fleurieu Distillery is located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, south of the state’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.
