Morris Rutherglen Muscat Barrel Single Malt Australian Whisky 700mL
The Morris Muscat Barrels has been matured in a combination of French and American oak ex-wine barrels and finished in rare Morris Muscat Barrels before being bottled at 46% ABV.
Made with Australian barley malted at the family brewery and pure, filtered water from the Snowy Mountains, Morris Whisky reflects not only the world-class fortified barrels but also its regional Victorian provenance.
As part of the process, they apply double distillation through their hybrid copper pot and column still and mature in a combination of French and American oak barrels sourced from family-owned wineries in the Barossa and Coonawarra regions.
Established in 1859, the Morris family winery is one of the most acclaimed fortified producers in the world.Craftsmanship in blending, ageing and creating world-class fortified wine has been passed down through six generations of the family, allowing MORRIS to truly master the creation of extraordinary flavour in Australian single malt whisky.The unique and distinctive MORRIS whisky flavour comes from unrivalled access to fortified wine barrels for finishing the whisky, barrels which have held the world’s most highly awarded fortified wines. In 2016, the distillery was built around the original copper still built in the 1930’s and installed at the Morris winery in 1941.
Today, they combine decades of tradition, our heritage still and ancient fortified casks with contemporary techniques to create a whisky that is a true expression of time and place.
These barrels are all prepared by hand at their private cooperage to a specific method, which imparts the unique Morris of Rutherglen flavour profile. Coupled with the local climate of hot summer days and cool nights, these conditions are perfect for ageing and creating the unique and distinctive Morris Whisky taste.
