Starward Whisky Projects (New) Old Fashioned Cocktail 500ml
Since blasting off in 2009, Starward has rocketed to new heights, exploring the whisky universe and discovering stars the likes of which have never been seen before. That journey continues with the launch of their experimental range Starward Whisky Projects.
The (New) Old Fashioned is first pre-mixed cocktail in that series and it’s a modern take on the classic whisky cocktail. Crafted in collaboration with leading bartenders, it’s a blend of Starward Whisky, their homemade bitters and wattleseed Demerara syrup. Wattleseeds are toasted acacia seeds, and add a delightful coffee and praline note to the tangy marmalade, Bonne Maman strawberry jam, mint tea and plum crumble flavours. All you must do is pour it over ice and enjoy around a campfire, bonfire, living room fireplace, barbeque or a candlelit dinner table. For some reason the fire element seems to really add to the experience – we don’t make the rules. Each bottle contains ten servings; £4 for such an exquisite Old Fashioned is a small price to pay.
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. 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 temperatures. This causes the whisky within the barrels to mature rapidly and develop a deep colour and rich flavour, 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.
