Starward 10th Anniversary Australian Single Malt Whisky
Celebrating a decade of whisky making in Melbourne, Starward’s 10th Anniversary Bottling is nothing short of spectacular. As the label suggests, this bottle could well become the centre of your universe, with other whiskies just orbiting around it at a distance. It’s a supernova of Demarara sugar caramel, dried fruits steeping for Christmas cake, Black Forest gateau, plum crumble, lemon zest, honey, strawberry jam, Nutella on a cinnamon and raisin bagel, a twist of black pepper and a pinch of Chinese five spice. Drink neat or mix into a dramatic highball with premium ginger ale or tonic.
Produced at the New World Whisky Distillery in Victoria, Starward is for the single malt connoisseur, the adventurous explorer and the craft beer lover. It’s distilled using bespoke locally grown brewer’s barley, which is much harder to manipulate than distiller’s barley, but has a far fuller flavour. The maturation occurs in twenty eight casks, an all Australian mixture of fortified wine, sweet wine and red wine casks from quality producers such as Yalumba. As anyone who has visited Melbourne knows, the cold currents from Antarctica and the hot desert winds that come across the mainland result in rapidly changing weather, humidity and temperature. This causes the whisky within the barrels to mature rapidly and develop a deep colour, meaning that Starward’s youngest malts become super smooth and are often mistaken for substantially older bottlings.
Free from the shackles of tradition David Vitale and his team are creating unique and world-beating Australian whisky in an urban distillery. Not only are they picking up World Whiskies Awards and medals from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, but they are putting the fun back into single malt.
