A bottled whisky-based negroni cocktail from Melbourne's Starward distillery.
Refigerate, pour over ice and serve (garnish if you want). Ten serves in the bottle.
Part of the re-launched bottled cocktail range in 2021.
From Starward: "Traditionally an Italian aperitif, ours is a distinctly Australian twist on a classic. We start with our bold, Melbourne-made whisky, aged in Australian red wine barrels. With its big, fruity flavour, Starward whisky was always crafted to sing in a cocktail.
"For our mixologists, only the finest ingredients will do. We sought out trusted local producers for our sweet vermouth and bitter orange liqueur."
Nose: Maraschino cherries, bright orange citrus, anise and a herbal twist
Palate: Juicy orange flesh, lemon rind, sour cherry, and cassia bark
Finish: Long and drying with hints of Jaffa chocolate and orange zest
