A single cask whisky from Tasmania’s Redlands distillery, bottled by Tasmanian Independent Bottlers.
The eigth release from Old Kempton (previously Redlands) by TIB, cask TIB RD 0012 was an ex-muscat barrel. The sweet Old Kempton spirit has shined in a number of rich, fortified wine cask style, but TIB have found particular success with these intense muscat barrels..
Originally launched as a paddock-to-bottle distillery, Redlands is now located at the historic Dysart House, in Kempton. They have released a number of official expressions to the Tasmanian market, but there has not been enough volume for the mainland. The few that have made it to the other states in personal luggage have been well received – the distillery’s sweet new make spirit working well with big, sweet wine casks.
Tasmanian Independent Bottlers is a new venture, driven by the team behind Heartwood – Australia’s best known indie bottler. Casting their net beyond the home state, TIB will look to bottle accessible single malts and spirits from across Australia. Avoiding the natural cask strength tendencies of Heartwood (which have topped 70% in the past), TIB releases will be offered between 46% and 50% ABV.
