Nova is an award-winning single malt whisky, matured in Australian wine barrels from local wineries making great Australian shiraz, cabernets, and pinot noirs. With our distillery located in the heart of Australia’s wine region, we often receive many of our barrels within days of being emptied. This allows us to “wet fill” our barrels with new make spirit to access as much of the wine’s fruit character as possible. This process results in a new world single malt whisky that highlights how whisky is evolving with new techniques in fermentation, maturation, and ingredients to create new flavors.

Tasting Notes

Beginning / A fruity, double distilled single malt made with Australian barley and craft brewers’ yeast for extra flavour.

Middle / Lightly charred or steamed barrels sourced from Australian wineries making great shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. Often filled fresh when the barrel is still wet with wine. Matured in Melbourne’s wildly varied climate for three years.

End / Exceptional length thanks to the red wine barrels. Bright aromatic notes of red berries, orchard fruits, vanilla, caramel and soft oak spice.

Future / Smooth and complex when sipped neat. Shines in classic cocktails. Works exceptionally well with food.
