Baker’s Dozen – grain has been a much protected commodity for centuries. So important was flour in feeding the masses that bakers were fined and gaoled for under-delivering bread to their customers, so they always gave a little more to be on the safe side. In times of poor harvest, whisky was often banned to ensure barley was used for food not liquor. A malt driven whisky that gives you a little bit extra.

Indicative Tasting Notes:

Deliciously sweet spirit qualities with complex vanilla and spun sugar, makes way to apples, pears and nectarines, with a long and evolving finish.

Distillery

DARK VALLEY WHISKY COMPANY

Dark Valley Whisky Company was established in 2014 by Alex Moores based on the model of the independent bottlers of Scottish and other world whiskies.

 His aim is to bottle all Tasmanian distilleries in a way that showcases the raw and elementary qualities of the different distilleries. He began with three releases featuring whisky distilled at Lark Distillery and the range has since been extended to include Adams, Killara and Redlands.

 As at August 2019, Dark Valley has bottled 15 Tasmanian whiskies, mostly small runs of about 30 bottles from 20 litre casks. 10 of the 15 expressions have already sold out on the Dark Valley website.

 Dark Valley comes from the Gaelic name Glen Dhu, which is the area in Tasmania where Alex grew up and is now the headquarters of Dark Valley Whisky.
