Archie Rose Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt Whisky

$149.00

Driven by Archie Rose’s thirst for discovery, the new Trials & Exceptions Series uncovers their most exceptional single casks and small batch trials, offering first-hand insights into the raw ingredients, processes and people involved in the production of their whisky, gin, vodka, rum and other spirits.

The inaugural release in this series, Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt Whisky highlights their stance that a great whisky starts its life in the field, not the distillery. It also showcases their continuing journey with Australian rye, supporting and working with local farmers and maltsters to produce uniquely Australian varieties.

Featuring a malted landrace rye sourced from fourth-generation NSW farmers, this grain has grown continuously near Sandigo NSW for over 60 years, adapting to weather including droughts, floods and storms to evolve into its own distinct strain.

They’ve decided to release Sandigo Heritage Rye Malt with no traditional commercial rye malt in the mash bill so whisky lovers can appreciate the individuality, clarity and strength of this grain, supporting their view that malt really matters as a key contributor to the final whisky. Raw and less refined it offers notes of signature creme caramel, banana and black tea, finishing with expansive spice notes of ginger, cinnamon and cardamom.
