Overview of our process
What is a Manly Spirits Whisky?
estimate release date for whisky: Early 2021
Manly Spirits Whisky is a range of Australian Single Malt whiskies produced by Manly Spirits Co. Distillery, Sydney’s Northern Beaches’ first artisan distillery, and will be available from 2021.
Following distillation in our gorgeous 1000L and 1500L copper pot stills, the clean full-bodied spirit is matured in a selection of French or American oak casks before being finished in classic Australian wine varietal casks.
Monitored by our Distillery team to ensure that the whisky is decanted at the optimum level of maturity, each whisky is bottled as a single cask and individually numbered to identify the exact cask and bottle.
Reflecting flawless craftsmanship and attention to detail that connects terroir, people and place, our signature whisky style presents an approachable fresh taste profile that is enjoyed by first-timers and connoisseurs alike.
Note: North Fort ‘White Dog’ Malt Spirit is on sale (this is an unaged malted barley spirit with no time spent in Oak). This showcases the origins of whisky before oak maturation….and is a tasty drop.
Aged to perfection, expressions of our whisky range have been matured in a selection of casks that capture the individual influence of the wood. These include; Ex-Bourbon American oak casks, Ex-Fortified wine French-oak casks and Ex-Australian Wine casks – Pinot Noir and Shiraz
An Australian single malt whisky must be aged for at least two years, to be called a whisky. All our Manly Spirits Whisky range is aged for a minimum of two years, and our Head Distiller will determine when is the optimal time to share each whisky with the world.
This is of course with the exception of our North Fort ‘White Dog’ Malt Spirit. We couldn’t wait to share this fresh, young, malty spirit with you.
Variety is the spice of life! For some of our whiskies in their final stages of maturation, our expert Distilling team will use various finishing techniques to create new and interesting variants.
Some of these Distillery Expressions will first appear at the tasting bar at our distillery and will then perhaps make it into our permanent range. Please let us know if you would like to be notified of new expressions when available.
