    The Gospel is more than just a whiskey brand. It's a testament to the passion and dedication of a small team of fanatics in Melbourne who have a fierce love for deliciously unpretentious rye whiskey. Led by their Master Distiller, Ian Thorn, The Gospel is Australia's only dedicated rye whiskey distillery. Ian is the boss of all things booze, and his expertise is evident in every bottle of The Gospel. Crafted and distilled from 100% Australian unmalted rye, The Gospel is a unique whiskey with a distinct flavour profile. The rye is cultivated and nurtured by a single farmer in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia, chosen specifically for its harsh climate and small, dense grains. This rye imparts deep, spicy flavours of vanilla, cinnamon and dried fruit, with developing notes of pepper, grass and grain. But The Gospel is more than just a great whiskey. The team behind it is passionate about standing up for what they believe in and supporting the community. They recognize their responsibility to operate in a responsible manner and to be conscious of their social impact and environmental footprint. That's why The Gospel uses 100% recyclable packaging, diverts their spent waste from landfill and donates 2.5% of net profit to their partner charities. Set in the backstreets of Melbourne's eclectic inner north, The Gospel distillery was designed and built by Ben and Andrew with the help of family and friends. It features a six-meter-high continuous column still, designed and built in-house, as well as a bespoke Copper Pot still. The Gospel wider team are an experienced group of booze industry experts, all of whom have a fierce love for deliciously unpretentious rye whiskey. 

    The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey is a whiskey like no other. It's full-flavored, rich in spice, deep, and complex, revealing more of itself as you sip. With a medium body and intensity, it perfectly balances the rye spice and vanilla oak influence, making it perfect on the rocks or in old-school whiskey-forward cocktails. The nose is reminiscent of buttery dark rye bread, with hints of spice and light toffee. On the palate, you'll taste caramel vanilla, sweet allspice, clove, pepper and green apple. The finish is dried red fruit and crème caramel, with woody spices. What makes The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey truly unique is that it's Australia's first whiskey to be legally labelled as 100% Straight, meeting the strict distillation and maturation processes required of typical American whiskeys. The barrels used to age the whiskey are made of new American oak, sourced from a cooperage in Kentucky, USA, who source the oak from a single forest. They are heavily toasted with specific varying char levels a formula that has been developed after years of trialling different combinations. The whiskey is double distilled and then aged in these casks for at least two years in Melbourne's dynamic climate. It's made using 100% Australian grown unmalted rye from a single farm in the Murray Mallee region of South Australia, one of the driest regions of the driest country in the world. Specifically chosen for its harsh climate, the rye from this area is small and dense renowned for its distinct, extraordinary flavour and is unmatched by rye from other areas. The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey is full of character from the soil from which it originated, with its unique terroir imparting the resilient rye grain flavours onto the palate. 

    The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey is a standout in the world of rye whiskies, with its bold American-style flavours and unique Australian terroir. It's no wonder that whiskey experts around the world have praised it for its distinct and extraordinary flavour. And with its gold medal wins at the International Wine and Spirits Competition and the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey has cemented its place as one of the best rye whiskies in the world. If you're looking for a high-quality rye whiskey that's made in Australia and has won international acclaim, look no further than The Gospel. It may taste different from the whisk(e)y you're used to drinking, but you'll discover a unique flavour nuance that is distinctly Australian.
