When we started selling whisky two years ago we never imagined in our wildest dreams that so many customers, bars, restaurants and retailers would enjoy the whisky that we make. In hindsight if we could have looked into a crystal ball and had more funding back when we started distilling seven years ago we would have put more whisky down. We've come a long way in two short years and learned a lot along the way.

We have three exciting announcements to make, the first is that Genise is now working in the distillery full time as of last week. Genise working full time in the distillery will help take our business to the next level in terms of production and will also help to grow our cellar door activities.

The second announcement is that we have a new rum release. Second fill ex-Sherry, ex-Whisky and cut at 40%. We wanted to make an affordable sipping rum that could also be used in cocktails.

Single Barrel Rum | 100L ex-Sherry Cask & Whisky Cask | 2 years | 700ml | 40% | $85

The third announcement is that the twelve month whisky drought is over and we have a new Whisky release. Aged for three years in a 100L ex-Port Cask. This happens to be our very first Port Cask release.

Single Barrel - Single Malt Whisky | 100L ex-Port Cask | 3 years | 500ml | 49.3% | $175

We would like to apologise and thank our customers who have hung in there and supported us for the past 12 months while we have been waiting for our Whisky to mature. We are putting plenty of casks down for the future and hope that you will continue to support us along our journey.

- Brian & Genise Hollingworth
