Bakery Hill Double Wood Farewell Bayswater Release Cask Strength Single Malt Australian Whisky (500ml)
To celebrate their history with Bayswater and Melbourne’s Outer East, and in the lead up to their relocation to Kensington in 2022, Bakery Hill are offering a limited number of commemorative bottles titled “Farewell Bayswater 1999-2022”. These will be the final bottlings of Bakery Hill Whisky, created, distilled and matured completely from the original Bayswater North distillery on the famous Gatwick Rd.
The Double Wood expression is a reflection of the impact of rich, soft oak on unpeated new make spirit, initially matured for up to 7 years in American Oak Ex-Bourbon barrels from Jack Daniels, before being transferred to a virgin French Oak ex-wine barrel, shaved back to bare wood, and then given a light toast to highlight the oak itself – rather than any of the previous contents of the barrel. The interplay between both American and French Oak styles ensure a unique richness of flavour alongside fresh vibrancy of the spirit. If you enjoy a multi dimensional whisky which tastes like Christmas in a glass - the Double Wood is the Bakery Hill whisky for you. 60% Alc./Vol.
