This eccentric King Island cask aged signature spirit, made with ♡ by Heidi Weitjens King Island Distillery, was an experiment that was created on the principal of necessity.
An expected rewarding result for the Queen of repurposing on King Island. We were pleasantly surprised at the result of a golden looking smooth spirit, that tastes like no other. Now it's time to for us to have the privilege to pay it forward for consumers and industry!
Deliberately asking more, of our 20 Litre casks, to explore to see what else the barrel had in store. We realised it had so much left to give us by exposing a neutral base spirit to the now well seasoned oak, embracing and adopting its layers of flavour characteristics from gracefully aging whisky and tawny over the years.
Happy Heidi's 40°S pure v♡dka, rested in the oak soaked with Tasmanian Single Malt whisky for two years, and Tawny prior to being coopered and charred to perfection, is the product creation formula was formed from unique circumstances. The solution this spirit solved is the problem associated with the remote location of King Island Distillery, the most Northly positioned distinguished distillery in Tasmania and no Cask Coopers on hand.
Pure Australian grape based v♡dka matured in the best retired Single Malt Tasmanian Whisky barrel, refined with crystal clear King Island cloud juice rainwater sitting at 40% ABV, delivers a strikingly smooth artisan spirit, named as a cask aged v♡dka, layered with flavours worth savouring.
Dare we say this King Island spirit, is unlike anything on the market amongst our fellow Tasmanian spirits.
