Australian Whiskey - Small Batch
We have a passion for creating at Wild River Mountain Distillery. While we love the refined flavors of our Australian Single Malt Whisky we are also crafting an Australian 4 grain corn Whiskey.
The rich red volcanic soils of the Atherton Tablelands are renowned for producing some of the best corn in Australia and has the perfect flavour for creating Australian Corn Whiskey.
Combined with malted barley, wheat and rye and ageing in virgin American oak our latest barrels of this whiskey has amazing rich flavours of caramel, Vanilla, spice, chocolate, coffee and oak. The 4th limited bottle release is due late 2022
Wild River Elevation & Australian Whisky
Temperatures at high altitudes such as ours fluctuate daily and allow the flavors in the barrel to meld differently than they do at sea level.
The temperature at Wild River fluctuates as much as 25 degrees in a day, falling dramatically at night.
Distillation of spirits at high elevations also means that alcohol boils at a lower temperature, which in turn aids the distiller greater control over the still, which in hand produces a higher quality, more flavorful spirit
Also as the temperature drops in our aging room, the pores of our oak barrels contract and expel the alcohol. The reverse occurs when the temperature rises, drawing new spirit into the pores.
Unlike spirits produced at sea level, this frequent shift in temperature allows more of the whisky to come in contact with the oak during its aging life. The perfect senario for crafting Australian whisky.
