We've searched high, we've searched low, we've searched between high and low, and we've found what we were looking for - whisky from New Zealand for us to bottle! While New Zealand might be more famous for wines, the Willowbank once produced incredible whiskies on the South Island, though it closed back in 1997. The distillery, we mean. Not New Zealand's South Island. 

It's the second batch of Willowbank whisky from New Zealand that has been independently bottled up by That Boutique-y Whisky Company! This 18 year old expression was aged in red wine casks, resulting in loads of red fruit note brilliance. A wonderful whisky from a sadly-closed distillery.

The nose has notes of sweet blackberries and is slighty malty. The palate has hints of oak and molasses with dried fruit before leading into the sweet and satisfying finish.

Batch 2 is a release of 506 bottles.

Latest Batch: 2

Latest Batch Age: 18 Years Old

Official tasting notes

  • Nose: Blackberry jam on toast, earthy with a savoury touch of tobacco, a pinch of cinnamon.
  • Palate: Cherry, chocolate, and brown sugar, balanced by woody tannins with a soft drying hint of baking spices.
  • Finish: Red fruit sweetness and a hint of leather.
