Starward Two-Fold Double Grain Whisky
Starward Two-Fold Double Grain Whisky is a flavourful Australian whisky matured in Australian red wine barrels. This ambitious expression marries two quintessentially Australian grains - wheat and malted barley - and elementally matures them in Melbourne's intensely reactive climate. Two-Fold promises to deliver an approachable whisky, with bright aromas of spiced vanilla, tropical fruits and cereals. The palate is rounded carrying hints of red apples and berries. The finish is delicate with soft tannins and lingering red fruits. This is a whisky for any occasion; neat by the fire, on ice to celebrate, mixed up in a perfect Manhattan. Two-Fold is made for the sharing cabinet, so enjoy with friends and family.
David Vitale, founder, started off with a simple vision; create a uniquely Australian whisky to bring forth to the world with pride. Born and bred in Melbourne, David was inspired to create a spirit that reflects his home town – from its culture to it’s famed ‘four seasons in a day’ temperature swings. It is a city surrounded by some of Australia’s leading wine regions – all within a day’s drive – and is regarded as the microbrewing capital of Australia.
It seems obvious now that all the ingredients for a modern Australian whisky were close by. But, in 2007, when he first started, the idea of an approachable, affordable Australian whisky - served neat or as a cocktail with food - was a big leap of faith. While Australia had a well-established small-scale ultra-premium whisky scene, David pioneered an affordable, approachable and distinctly Australian whisky.
The result is STARWARD. A modern Australian whisky, elementally matured for three “Melbourne years” in Australian wine barrels, that pushes the boundaries of what whisky can be.
