WHA SINGLE BARREL RELEASES
WHA 1792 - Full Proof
We are thrilled to announce our first ever Single Barrel Select exclusively for the Australian bourbon community! The WHA crew traveled to Kentucky in May, 2019 to taste our way through several barrels until we found the perfect barrel of 1792 Bourbon to proudly call our own! The team at Barton are some of the best in the business and have a reputation for producing some unbelievable quality Bourbon. The Full Proof was recently awarded Whiskey of the Year 2020 by Jim Murray Whiskey Bible!
“you can only sit, eyes closed, in awe. This is a delivery of perfection: intense, seemingly no prisoners. Yet, actually, you find it has the grace to allow every character to make a speech of great erudition, ultimately a discourse of how so many facets can be singular yet together make for such glorious integration. This is a whiskey of stand out, almost stand-alone beauty. Finding fault is not easy with something this intense and magnificently rich.”

2020 / 2021 WHA Barrel Picks
With the success of our first Barrel Select Bourbon we have secured several exciting barrels from a selection of the best distilleries across Kentucky, including some that have never been available in Australia before! Keep an eye on our socials for a chance to purchase some of these incredible bourbons heading our way!
Unfortunately due to Covid travel restrictions we couldn't make our annual visit to Kentucky this year. Luckily Barton Master Distiller, Danny Kahn came to the rescue by picking not one but two honey barrels for us!
Huge thank you to Danny and the team from Visit Bardstown for including us in your National Bourbon Day celebrations!
We are so excited to be releasing our first Barrell Craft Spirits Single Barrel pick! We had help picking this one from some of the biggest Rye fans we know, and the winning barrel (M745) is an absolute stunner!
Bottled at cask strength, this 57.83% whiskey has all the oak, leather, peppercorn and tobacco you want from a rye, balanced out with vanilla, floral and honey notes that bring another level of incredible depth and complexity.
MGP (Midwest Grain Products) are renown for making the best rye on earth. This 7 year Honey Barrel is certainly an example of that. With a barrel yield of only 174 bottles this one won't last long!
We sold out of this one in 36 hours, but you might be lucky enough to find it at one of our retail partners:
