The Starward Distillery is located in Melbourne. Melbourne is the gourmet capital of Australia and also has delicacies to offer for one or the other whiskey lover. The varied weather elicits both distinctive aromas and delicious flavors from the distillate. Every single ingredient comes from the surrounding area and is sourced no more than an hour's drive away. The Octave Barrels bottling matures in particularly small Octave barrels, which hold a maximum of 100 liters. This brings the flavor of whiskey and oak even more to the fore. The Octave barrels previously stored Shiraz from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Awards: - Double gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022. Tasting notes:Color: Bright amber.
