You will be absolutely hands-on as you experience traditional craft distilling first-hand in a small family operated distillery.
The Whisky Making Experience is not a sanitised “tour”. You don't just watch someone else making Whisky. You will be actively involved in everything from milling the grain, mashing-in and producing the wort, taking specific gravity readings, starting the fermentation and you will be alongside the distiller as the Low Wines are distilled to produce the New Make Whisky Spirit.
During the distillation you will help determine the "cut points" when the fores, heart and feints are separated.
You will also prepare a cask and fill that with the New Make Spirit. You will also sign and date the filled cask.
On top of the fun we know you will have during your Whisky Making Experience a bottle from the cask you have filled will be reserved for you to purchase (if you wish) at 25% off the usual retail price.
We are happy for you to take photos during the day and you can ask as many questions as you want.
There truly is no better experience for whisky lovers.
The day includes a workers lunch in the distillery, morning tea, tastings of the Nonesuch range of products as well as a dram or two of specially selected whiskies so you can compare styles. You will be one of very few to sample the maturing the spirit in one of our casks and take away a special gift as a memento of your day.
Cost $400 per person (minimum 2 persons per booking)
To ensure you get the optimum out of your day we suggest you limit your group to three people.

Participation requires a certain level of fitness as some aspects entail physical activity. The NONESUCH WHISKY MAKING EXPERIENCE takes place in a working distillery and as such is unsuitable for anyone who has an underlying health problem that would prevent them from carrying out physical activity or standing for long periods of time.
Travel to and from the distillery is not included in the price.
This Experience is not designed to be a course for aspiring distillers and does not incorporate the technical details required to commercially produce spirits.
