An old style Nant expression bottled in 2013 when Keith Batt used to sign the labels himself. Those were the days! 

Tasting Notes
Polished copper colour showing nice legs down the sides of the glass. A densely packed sherried sniff evolves with layers of Christmas pudding, raisins, sticky date and weighty vanillas becoming almost fine brandy-like in the later stages. Viscous entry is mildly bittersweet. Leads into an intense attack with flavours of fruit cake, dates and creamy vanilla at the finish. Bold but impressively balanced, this coats every crevice of the mouth. (Nicks Wine Merchants)

Nant Distillery

It has been something of a rollercoaster at Nant. It launched with much fanfare at an idyllic site near Bothwell in the Tasmanian Highlands, won much acclaim for the quality of some of its early expressions, only to sink into the depths of despair as a result of a whisky barrel investment scheme gone wrong, but then to start climbing back as a result of a significant change in ownership and structure. CEO Chris Malcolm of Australian Whisky Holdings has cleaned up the Investment scheme and now there is much afoot at Nant, initially by way of renovation of the existing premises and then substantial expansion with the construction of a second still house.  

Whilst new bottlings will soon be flowing at Nant, we also offer some of those, which found much favour under the old regime and now form part of the Nant archive.
