Melbourne rye whiskey distillery, The Gospel, has announced the release of Tawny Cask, the first instalment in its ongoing project series.
“For this special Project Release, The Gospel chose a barrel sourced from a family operated winery in the Barossa – Dutschke Wines,” the company said.
“The cask was used to age Dutschke Wines’ 9 year old Tawny Fortified Wine and was delivered to The Gospel fresh, without re-coopering.
“The cask was filled with mature Straight Rye Whiskey and allowed to mellow for a further four months.
“The end result is a deliciously well-balanced whiskey that envelopes the spice of The Gospel Straight Rye with the rich sweetness of the Tawny, best enjoyed over the Christmas period.”
Limited to 558 bottles, the Tawny Cask release is now available direct from the company’s website and selected retailers with an RRP of $130.
