In August 2019 for the tenth anniversary of the Sydney Whisky Fair, The Oak Barrel teamed up with the Black Gate distillery – also celebrating ten years – for a special Fair exclusive release OAKBARRELBLACKGATE19.
From a range of samples, we decided to bottle a rum from the port cask solera vat system at the distillery – pushing up the ABV to 51%. Just 32 bottles were part of the release, to mimic the number of bottles from our first Black Gate collaboration, many of which were poured during the event.
To ensure fairness, these bottles were divided up amongst the sessions and released for sale at different intervals. They sold out almost instantly.
However, a very small number were left over from stock earmarked to be poured and a small amount left from Session 3’s allocation. While tempting to keep in the archive, we’ve decided to quietly put these on the shelves for anyone interested.
Strictly one per customer.
