The Gospel Australian Solera Rye
Made using 100% Australian grown rye from a single farm in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia. The whiskey is aged in charred, new American oak barrels to embody the characteristics of traditional rye whiskey. Flavour notes: Sweet allspice, clove and pepper followed by dried red fruit and creme caramel.
The Gospel founders Ben Bowles and Andrew Fitzgerald are long term disciples of the craft of distilling. Ben, a South Carolina native, learnt how to distil before he was old enough to drive. Set in the backstreets of Melbourne’s eclectic Brunswick neighbourhood, Ben and Andrew designed and built a distillery big enough to match their dreams, but small enough to remain hands on where it matters. With the help of family and friends, the distillery was built over an 18 month period. It features a six metre high continuous column still, designed and built in-house, as well as a bespoke Copper Pot still. The Gospel wider team are an experienced group of wine makers and brewers, all of whom have a fierce love for deliciously unpretentious rye whiskey.
