Starward Australian Whisky Solera

$64.99

Size
750ml, bottle

This Starward Australian Whisky Solera is a unique Australian take on a traditional Spanish method. Aged in re-coopered Apera (Australian fortified wine) casks, Starward Solera boasts rich and balanced flavors with hints of jammy fruits, creme brûlée, and spice.

Description

The Melbourne Influence

Solera isn’t just inspired by tradition, it’s a reflection of Melbourne itself. The wildly fluctuating temperatures of Melbourne weather accelerate the maturation process. The whisky “works harder” in the barrel, drawing out the rich flavors of the Apera casks in a shorter time frame compared to cooler climates.

Apera Cask Magic

The re-coopered Apera casks are the heart of Solera’s unique character. Apera is an Australian fortified wine similar to Sherry, but with its own distinct profile. These seasoned casks impart notes of dried fruits, raisins, and a hint of nuttiness to the whisky, complementing the sweetness of the caramelized sugars.

A Touch of History in Every Bottle

One of the most intriguing aspects of Solera is the Solera system itself. This fractional blending process ensures that a tiny amount of the very first spirit Starward ever produced remains in every bottle. It’s a subtle touch, but it adds a layer of history and depth to the flavor profile, connecting you to Starward’s origins with every sip.

Versatility for Every Palate

Solera’s richness and complexity make it enjoyable in a variety of ways. Savor it neat to fully appreciate the interplay of flavors. Add a touch of water to open up the aromatics further. For a refreshing twist, enjoy it over ice. Solera also lends itself well to classic cocktails, adding a unique Australian twist to your favorite recipes.
