Nonesuch Cask 8 ex Pinot Noir Single Malt Whisky - Historic

$495 AUD

48%  500ml

Bottled in May 2019 at a little over two years old for immediate release, only 40 bottles were produced at 48% ABV from a 20 litre ex Pinot Noir barrel. This is the first release from the Nonesuch Distillery aged in such a barrel.

Not surprisingly, this expression quickly sold out at the distillery to join the ranks of the incredibly scarce Nonesuch historic bottlings.  This is the prized bottle No 2 in the series, much sought after by collectors.

Nonesuch Distillery

About 35 minutes east of Hobart is the small town of Sorell overlooking Tiger Head Bay. One of the farms near Sorell is home to Nonesuch Distillery. Rex Burdon and his small shed are just up the hill from the main road and producing several different styles of spirits. There have been a few small batches of whisky produced at Nonesuch but Rex has made his reputation through making sloe gin and sloe malt. His enthusiasm for this hands-on process is contagious and the goats and chickens that roam around the distillery add to its rural charm. The term “Nonesuch” comes from a family farm that Rex’s ancestors used to own. They were extremely proud of their land and the work they were doing on it that to them, it was better than any other farm, hence “Nonesuch”.  A boisterous statement but also a motivator for Rex and his team to continue experimenting and finding their perfect house style of whisky.
