Starward Solera Whisky
Utilising centuries of knowledge and tradition, yet not restricted by it, Starward is the brainchild of David Vitale who set out to harness the very best of Australia’s barley, barrels and climate to create the ultimate new world whisky. Years of experimentation, adjustment, trial and even more adjustment has created Starward, a whisky that will challenge your perceptions of what Whisky can be. Artisan Victorian barley is sourced to begin the bespoke process which ends up in aged Australian Apera casks that have been re-coopered, re-toasted and re-sized. All of which help create a Whisky of smoothness, sweetness and unparalleled complexity.
A twice distilled single malt whisky. We ferment Australian malted barley with brewers’ yeast for an extra flavourful craft finish. Solera is fully matured in carefully selected Apera casks, an Australian fortified wine that’s similar to Sherry. The traditional way we blend Solera means there’s a drop of our original cask in every bottle. Rich and well balanced. Jammy fruits, creme brûlée and spice with a lingering dry finish. Enjoy sipped neat, over ice or shaken up in a classic cocktail.
