Preparing Whisky For Bottling - Flocculation and Filtering

March 20, 2019

When you next pick up a bottle of our whisky, invert it or give it a little shake.   If you are lucky enough you might see a hazy little cloud of something.What you are seeing is what we call the 'essence' of the whisky.  To be precise it is the naturally occurring oils and proteins that provide an enormous amount of the flavour, mouth-feel and the finish of a great whisky.  In a cask strength whisky these oils and proteins are in suspension in the liquid and you never see them but here’s the thing!  When water is added to alcohol a reaction takes place and this reaction can cause some of those proteins and oils to come out of suspension. This can create...

September 09, 2018

Bottling whisky is not simply a process of moving it from the cask to bottles. When we add water to the cask strength spirit a chemical reaction takes place and that results in some of the proteins and oils coming out of suspension. These oils and proteins only need to be removed for aesthetic purposes, they actually contribute a lot of flavour and colour but look unappealing if left in the bottle....

So Far So Good - Raising Awareness of Mental Health

August 02, 2018

Raising awareness of Mental Health is something near and dear to us so when Sydney based Art Director, Amy Roser, made us aware of the project she had underway to address this issue we were immediately on-board. Amy is curating an exhibition titled "So Far So Good" with 100% of the profits going to support the amazing work of charity One Wave (pictured) along with another very active charity, batyr,. Both One Wave and batyr have approached the work of raising awareness of issues such as depression and anxiety in unique and engaging ways.   Please have a look at their websites to see the great work they are doing. How are we supporting Amy and So Far So Good? Our first undertaking was to...
