STARWARD WHISKEY - OFFICIAL 2021 SPIRIT EXHIBITOR
Australian Whiskey For The Food Obsessed
Starward Whiskey Distillery
While Australia had a well-established small-scale ultra-premium whisky scene, we pioneered an affordable, approachable and distinctly Australian whisky exclusively matured in Australian wine barrels. The result is Starward. A modern Australian whisky, elementally matured for three “Melbourne years,” that pushes the boundaries of what whisky can be.
Starward began with a simple vision; create a uniquely Australian whisky we can offer the world with pride. Born and bred in Melbourne, we are inspired to create a spirit that reflects our hometown – from its culture to its famed ‘four seasons in a day’ temperature swings.
It is a city surrounded by some of Australia’s leading wine regions – all within a day’s drive and is regarded as the microbrewing capital of Australia. It seems obvious now that all the ingredients for a modern Australian whisky were close by, but in 2007, when we first started, the idea of an approachable, affordable Australian whisky – served neat or as a cocktail with food - was a big leap of faith.
STARWARD TWO FOLD
Double Grain Whisky / 750mL / 40% / 80 Proof
A velvety smooth and lightly spiced double-grain whisky. Think of a rich caramel dessert balanced by tropical fruit. An easy-drinking whisky crafted from Australian malted barley and wheat, aged in Australian red wine barrels for a fruity, caramel flavor.
NOSE / Bright red berries coated in buttery vanilla spice.
PALATE / Imagine a smooth, rich caramel dessert balanced by tropical fruit.
FINISH / Delicate and long. A delicious, dry finish from a faded sweetness.
