Woooo!Less than two weeks until we launch our first 3 releases. The first is RG001 Portuguese Port Cask:
This cask holds a very special place in our hearts. The cask was hand selected by Robbie and is estimated to be 60 years old and is a rich, ripe Portuguese Port pipe. It was coppered down to 25L and charred by Robbie to increase the oaks surface area to enhance the interaction between the spirit and the staves. Flavours of burnt butter, toffee and cooked apricots.🍑🧈🔥

☝️A Virtual Whisky Event

Heartwood & Tasmanian Independent Bottlers will team up again with Destination Cellars for an evening of great drams, but this time you can enjoy the drams and erudite banter from Mr H from the comfort of your own home . Our first virtual tasting event will go live at 7pm Wednesday April 22nd.

Due to Social Distancing we will bring Distant Socializing, we will send you out the sample bottles and then later on we will send you an invitation to join the Zoom meeting. To participate all you will need is your computer or phone. Or you can enjoy the samples in the solitude and sanctity of your home at any time.

Here's a line up to make you salivate:

1. You will get the first look at the pre-release of the TIB Vatted Malt #3 at 49.6% abv consisting of two ex-Sherry casks from 'a Renowned NSW Distillery', & a splash of peated ex-Sherry cask from local Adams Distillery.

2. TIB RD0027 Sherry Cask 47.9% - Gold Medal at the Wizards of Whisky 2020

3. TIB 'Renowned NSW Distillery' Release 3 matured in two ex-Sherry casks (TIB ??0017 & ??0018) before bottling at 46.1%

4. Heartwood Wizards Sceptre the latest high octane release. This is composed of 100 litres of an old Fino Sherry Lark LD 766 cask, with about 80 litres added from Old Kempton RD 109 Oloroso Sherry cask, and to finish it off, a fair splash of a smoky, peaty bomb from Belgrove PB 121.

TIB is run by local alchemist Tim Duckett (aka Mr H), producer of the famed high-octane Heartwood brand, who has created TIB to offer a more gentle style of whisky with less 'mongrel' than the Heartwood releases. Heartwood has won countless awards on some of the most prestigious whisky stages over the past decade and TIB is now following suit.

He sources spirit from Tasmania, mainland Australia, and New Zealand based on its texture and flavour profile. It is then matched to a specific barrel type. Currently they have selected 15 barrel types for maturation of the spirit including:
Sherry, Port, Bourbon, Muscat, Botrytis, Virgin oak, Re-educated 2nd fill, Rum, Bourbon Rum, Sherry Rum, Tokay, PX, Rye, Whisky beer. Also they will have oats, rye, & apple spirit. Exciting times.

TIB Awards: The Wizards of Whisky World Whisky Awards 2019 Australasian Producer of the Year 2019 Tasmanian Independent Bottlers. 2018 Independent Bottlers Challenge Winner.

Limited amounts of stock will be available to purchase at great prices to attendees on the night (online or in-store purchase/pick up)

Tickets/packs are $50 per person for in-store purchase (or Click & Collect) or $57.95 including postage (calculated at checkout). Your pack consists of four 15ml sample bottles & a tasting mat.

Where: Wherever you are

When: Wednesday evening April 22nd at 7pm for the live feed (we will send the Zoom link soon). We hope to have the session recorded so people can enjoy the drams when they are free to do so. Or you can tuck in to them as soon as you get them - it is up to you.
