The distillery is nestled on the fertile foothills of Mt. Uncle from where it claims its name from. The mountain was named after the Uncle of the founding pioneer John Atherton, very original! Yes there is also a Mt. Aunty beside him as well so the big guy doesn’t get lonely. Set in landscaped gardens on a Banana, Avocado and Macadamia plantation Mt. Uncle Distillery is as a pleasant visit upon your eyes as it is your taste buds.

Their whisky is made with Queensland malted barley and aged for 5 years in American and French oak barrels.

Tasting note: Deep polished copper colour. Issues strong scents of Christmas fruit mince pie and gobstopper, following through to an exceptionally soft textured, lightish profile that echoes the aromas. Well balanced with gentle spices and hints of vanilla entering late. 43% Alc./Vol.
