Nonesuch ND55 TRUB-LESOME Tasmanian Special Batch Whisky – Historic

$400 AUD

43%  500ml

Bottled in January 2022 at a little over two years old for immediate release, only 41 bottles were produced at 43% ABV from a 20 litre New French Oak barrel. 

As explained by the distillery:

In the bottom of every finished ferment there is a small amount of product known as “TRUB”

In our fermenters, this Trub sits in a not insignificant amount of fermented wash that we leave behind when transferring the wash to the still.  We do this so we don't stir up the trub and carry it over to the still purely as it makes cleaning the still more of a chore.

Our distiller was sure great flavour could be captured from this component so he collected it from fermenters and when he had sufficient he distilled it.  (He also had the not so enjoyable task of scouring the still afterward).

Matured in New French Oak this is one incredibly unique expression.

Each bottle is individually numbered.

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.
