Backwoods Wild Rye 42% 500ml
$87.00
A Heritage Ryecorn is the chief ingredient in this Wild Rye. It delivers an earthy, fresh rye bread aroma, toasty/biscuit like sweetness and a classic dry, spicy finish. Their mash bill also includes barley (for sweetness) and wheat (for nuttiness). And finally, adding a small amount of chocolate malt. You will notice this on the finish, as it lingers on the pallet, urging your next sip. After fermenting with a selection of speciality yeasts, they finish the process with the lid open. This allows for a secondary fermentation as the mash is infected with local airborne yeasts, particular only to Backwoods. The wash is distilled twice in a custom-designed copper pot still, and a very tight cut is made to ensure that only the gentlest portion of the hearts is taken. What remains is right here in this bottle. A spirit that is rich in spice and sweetness. Handcrafted from grain to glass. Backwoods Distilling Co. source all of our grain exclusively from expert maltsters, Voyager Craft Malt in the Riverina region. Tasting Notes: Aromatic and doughy on the nose, with a earthy mouthfeel of hazelnuts and fresh toasted bread followed by a long nutty finish with moderate pepper spice.

Bakery Hill Peated Malt Cask Strength 60% 500ml
$230.00
An incorrect image is shown (not cask strength). Our Peated Single Malt, delivered straight from the cask is our “biggest” and most awarded whisky in our range. In fact it is one of the biggest Australian whiskies available today. The malted barley is “peated” in northern Scotland and exhibits a more “Highland” style peat, which produces an “earthier” rounded peat smoke with minimal “medicinal/iodine” notes.  If you are looking for the ultimate flavour experience that you will continue tasting long after the glass is dry, this whisky is for you Tasting Notes: Nose: A rich subdued peat aroma combined with a natural leathery earthiness with overtones of kumquat and fruit mince tart. Sweet but not sickly.  Palate: The palate reveals a tobacco leaf earthiness with layer upon layer of complex smoky peat that lingers on the lips and palette demanding just one more sip. Finish: Astonishingly long and complex, an exotic mix of experiences.

Bakery Hill Distillery is proud to introduce the second edition of Eldorado – our Australian Sherry (Apera) barrel matured single malt whisky. In this follow up to one of 2020 hottest Australian whiskies - We have ramped up the intensity and vibrancy of the sherry barrel influence to produce a rich, sprightly, dense, but ultimately drinkable single malt. Eldorado Second Edition showcases the complex integration between American oak and French oak maturation on the traditional Bakery Hill Classic spirit. After distillation the unpeated spirit was placed in a Seppeltsfield Barossa Valley Apera cask (2nd fill) for 18 months, before a final maturation in American Oak ex-Bourbon cask for a period of just on 3 years. Eldorado Second Edition This whisky is dangerously drinkable from the bottle at 55% but may also improve with a couple of drops of water, and certainly with time in the glass. Only 345 bottles in total available, each bottle is individually numbered, includes detailed production notes and a limited edition collector tasting card.

The Bakery Hill and Hop Nation Brewery collaboration has now been consistently delivering to a cult audience for over six years.  2024 marks the fifth release of the Hop Nation Imperial Stout beer - The Kalash. A beer which has spent many months in Bakery Hill whisky barrels to produce a unique and rich flavour profile. Following on from the success of 2020 and 2022 editions, we have once again reclaimed a number of these barrels -freshly emptied of beer, and refilled with 5 year old Bakery Hill whisky. The whisky has then spent 2 additional years finishing in the ex-stout barrel before decanting and bottling.  In this 2024 third edition of Blunderbuss, we have ramped up the tasting experience even further with one key introduction - Peat. That's right, this is the first Blunderbuss produced using Bakery Hill Peated Malt.   Blunderbuss Third Edition delivers massive flavour components, with rich, creamy mouthfeel and what seems to be an everlasting finish. With only one barrel (approx 250 bottles) available, snap up your piece of history.

Our Classic spirit is initially matured for up to 7 years in American Oak Ex-Bourbon barrels from Jack Daniels, before being transferred to a virgin French Oak ex-wine barrel, shaved back to bare wood, and then given a light toast to highlight the oak itself – rather than any of the previous contents of the barrel. Tasting Notes:Nose: The nose opens with the slightest hint of apricot, coconut and plum, going on to reveal an intermingling of golden syrup and plum pudding warmed by the spicy hint of cloves Palate: Subdued, mouth filling with orange marmalade overtones with the characteristic rich nougat sweetness and well balanced oak Finish: Rounded, well finished and lingering to the very end

Our Peated Single Malt attracts both peated whisky lovers as well as those previously averse to the heavier smokier elements of single malts. In our Peated expression, rather than overpowering the malt with smoke, the peat acts as a complimentary flavour to the sweet, floral and fresh notes of the spirit. Something to savour and enjoy. Tasting Notes: Nose: A subdued peat aroma combined with natural leather and overtones of kumquat and fruit mince tart. Sweet, but not overly so. Palate: The palate reveals a tobacco leaf earthiness with layer upon layer of complex smoke intermingling with toffee and honeycomb. Lingers on the lips and palate, demanding just one more sip. Finish: Astonishingly long and complex, an exotic mix of experiences. Awards: 2021 Gold Australian Distilled Spirts Awards
