About Sullivans Cove French Oak Single Cask Malt Whisky

Sullivans Cove French Oak Single Cask Malt Whisky is made from barley grown exclusively on the island of Tasmania. “The island’s deep red basalt soil, pure water and mild temperatures result in a barley that is perfect for distillation,” says Patrick Maguire, the distillery’s founder and master distiller (his ancestors were convicts that were imprisoned on the island). In addition, the island has one of the oldest and strictest quarantine programs in the world, ensuring that the barley remains untainted.

Once the barley has been harvested, it is malted at the Cascade Brewery by Roger Ibbott, who has over four decades of experience malting barley. The malted barley is then mashed and fermented at Sullivans Cove Distillery using a unique strain of yeast developed specifically for the production of Sullivans Cove Whisky. Then, the wash is twice-distilled through a handmade copper-pot still. “The real trick is to cut the run short, so that only the sweetest, best flavors and purest alcohol from the heart of the run is captured”, says Macguire. It’s not the most sensible approach by an accountant’s standards, but then it’s a good thing that we are not accountants!”

Following distillation, Sullivans Cove French Oak Single Cask Malt Whisky is matured for twelve years in hand-selected, thirty-year old French oak casks that were previously used to mature port. As a result, the whisky has a lush, floral aroma with notes of chocolate, cherries, dried fruits and toffee, which lead to a supple, dark finish.

Sullivans Cove French Oak earned the Gold Medal at the World Whisky Masters, and also earned a score of 96.5 points in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. In addition, the whisky was named the “World’s Best Single Malt Whisky” by Whisky Magazine in 2014.

“This whisky is distilled with conviction,”Macguire says. Pick up a unique single malt today!
