A delicious and rather festive dram from Corowa in rural New South Wales. This single malt whisky has been aged in American oak barrels that previously held Tawny wine (Australia's answer to Port). The final product is a bright, malty and nutty spirit which has developed incredible depth of flavour, benefitting from accelerated aging due to Corowa’s warm climate.
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.
