Starward has been redefining expectations of Australian whisky for well over a decade now. When we were searching for a distillery to partner with on a Whisky Loot exclusive barrel select, modern outfit Starward was the perfect fit. This is the first French oak matured Starward single barrel to be released in Australia.
Starward use the flavours and food of Melbourne, regularly ranked as one of the best dining cities in the world, as their muse when creating whisky. Starward eschew the orthodox locations of the misty glen, emerald isle or even sunbaked Aussie outback. Instead, they proudly celebrate their home in post-industrial Port Melbourne.
Whisky Loot and Starward share many values: a distaste for tradition, a democratic spirit and a love of great whiskies. Together, we’ve bottled one of the best.
