Taylor & Smith - Barrel 8 Whisky with Box
Taylor & Smith – not to be confused with Taylor Swift – is a little artisan distillery in Hobart owned and run by Natalie and Ben, who experiment with local Tasmanian botanicals to distil the spirit of place. Their process is slow, careful, nuanced and local. At their distillery the duo hand mill all Tasmanian malted barley; mash; ferment with their unique yeast profile and distill with direct firing. They use only the highest quality barrels to match their carefully crafted spirit; smelling, tasting and refining as it matures to ensure the best flavour. Subtle caramelisation provides warmth and depth, and their whisky takes on the character of an individual barrel – evoking the spirit of Tasmania, the seasons and the sun.
Their Barrel 8 single malt Tasmanian whisky was matured in a single Sherry cask. It tastes like sunshine filtering through a dark rainforest with honey warmth. Distilled on 24 April 2020. Hand numbered and presented in a super cool multicolour perspex display box. Only 38 bottles made!!!
