A collaboration with South Australia’s award-winning Main & Cherry wines, these casks held shiraz sourced from the cooler regions of McLaren Vale, before being re-coopered and given a medium toast and char to integrate our spirit into the wine and the wood. Expressed are all the joys of American oak with creamy vanilla and strawberry jam aromas melding into a luscious palate of caramel fudge, custard apples and toasted hazelnuts. The finish reminiscent of sweet pastry brioche and decadent maple syrup, together with baking spices and a little cinnamon zest to round it all out. A Tasmanian single malt whisky to truly raise the spirits.
Spirit Thief Distilling Co.
When three thieves from Tasmania’s whisky industry chose to explore the marriage between spirit and heavily-charred ex red wine casks, the outcome was uncertain. What they discovered years later, was a complex arrangement between oak, spirit, char, tannin and flavour profile that was both bold, elegant and unique. This laid the foundations for what would become an exploration into single malt whiskies matured in varietal specific red wine casks. Capital investment and further collaboration would be required. Procuring some of the world’s rarest red wine matured whiskies from award-winning, distinguished distilleries around the globe at the outset, through to uniting our own spirit with our distinct curated wine barrel collection; Spirit Thief now creates unique, limited edition single malt whiskies.
