Recent winner of Australia’s Best Single Malt Whisky and crowned Best Craft Distilled Whisky in the world in 2016, the Wine Cask is an impeccable reflection of what whisky can be. This unique expression, which draws influence from the vibrancy of South Australian Shiraz and other uniquely Australian red wines, is red ochre in colour and a great balance of sweet and savoury on the palate.
Founder David Vitale, started off with a simple vision; create a uniquely Australian whisky he can offer the world with pride. Born and bred in Melbourne, he was inspired to create a spirit that reflects his home town – from its culture to it’s famed ‘four seasons in a day’ temperature swings. The result is STARWARD. A modern Australian whisky, elementally matured for three “Melbourne years” in Australian wine barrels, that pushes the boundaries of what whisky can be.

Starward fill their barrels direct from a network of winemakers. Starward are then able to fill these barrels still saturated with wine for the entire maturation period. No re-coopering, no re-charring.
