The Corowa Distilling Co, which is located on the New South Wales side of the Murray River, grew out of the chocolate business that Neil & Dean Druce ran out of their organic farm. Given the chance to buy an old flour mill for just $1, they set up a distillery and put out their first releases in 2018.
Bosque Verde, which translates from both Spanish and Scottish Gaelic as ‘Green Grove’ (the name of their farm) was one of those two debut releases. Corowa have gone heavy on style using a distinctive bottle design and selling them in a unique, protective pouch. It is a whisky that looks great on the shelf.
Inside the bottle, the spirit has been aged for a minimum of two years in American Oak ex-port barrels. They have given it a notably dark colour and a rich flavour which masks its youthful complexion. It’s a complex whisky that Aussie whisky enthusiasts will be desperate to try and which bodes well for the future of this exciting new distillery.

Youthful, nutty, and herbal with hints of freshly mowed grass and oak-fueled spiciness over the top of a rich burnt caramel with hints of cherries and raisins.
At first sharp and spicy on the tongue with plenty of tannins, pepper, and cinnamon. But underneath there are strong hints of sweetness; dark chocolate, caramel, and port from the oak barrels. A intriguing whisky that can’t quite make up its mind
Long, tangy and acidic with smoke and hints of vinegar but also citrus fruits and again some sweetness with vanilla now to the fore.
