Single Malt Whisky
Masters in rum, the team of highly skilled distillers at Beenleigh love the highly technical process and care required to develop internationally award-winning spirits. It is as much of an artform as it is a science. Driven by head distiller Wayne Stewart, with a wealth of 40+ years of experience, the team have crafted a unique Beenleigh Whisky, the first ever produced, a piece of history for the historic Australian brand. Nestled away in the picturesque Albert River, who could think of a better place to craft a fine Single Malt Whisky.
This is a small batch production, the first ever Beenleigh 5-Year-Old Single Malt Whisky. Hand crafted by our Head Distiller of over 40 years, matured in Ex-Bourbon Beenleigh Rum Barrel’s for 5 years. What was produced was a whisky that has a lovely balance of toasted American white oak flavours, which combine with tropical fruit notes extracted from the barrel’s previous life, maturing iconic Beenleigh rum. Notes of toffee & caramel balance out and finish this historic whisky.
This is exclusive ensemble of Crème brulee, shortbread pastry, pear, banana, apple on the nose with a fruit-focused palate of banana, passionfruit, oranges with a hint of spice and a medium finish with light oak and tobacco. Malt character and diverse array of fruit aromas are showcased with the subtle bourbon oak influence – yielding a delightful expression.
Produced from Westminster barley malt sourced from an award-winning independent brewery. Beenleigh’s 5-Year-Old Single Malt Whisky is 100% Australian made, and a true reflection of the Beenleigh spirit. True to our authentic craft, this whisky is non-chill filtered, in bottle at 46% alc/vol, each bottle carefully hand filled and labelled. This marks the first of our Distillery Exclusive range with every bottle housed in its own gift-box, accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity from Head Distiller, Wayne Stewart.
This five-year-old Whisky delivers a departure from our Australian Rum heritage, with Master Distiller Wayne Stewart and our operations team executing a stunning segue into Queensland Whisky provenance. This is a one-time release, once it’s gone, this batch will never be seen again. Don’t miss out on your piece of Beenleigh history!
