History in the making!
Okay - so we might be a little bit over-excited. 😁 It is possible that Canberra's inaugural flight from Whisky Flights won't make international history books, but this is us spreading our wings for the first time - so we're allowed a little excitement!
The Riverbourne distillery was founded in 2015 in Jingera, New South Wales (just south of Captains Flat, and about an hour from Canberra). Riverbourne is run by Martin Pye, and his wife Eileen.
Riverbourne's core range consists of The Identiry - a light Scottish Lowland style whisky, fruity and floral; The Ultimatum - a heavier, toffee honeyed style; and The Supremacy - a peated Scottish Highland style with plenty of fruit and toffee.
There has also been several special or limited releases - including The Initiative, which was a rum casked release; and two separate exceptional single cask releases labelled as The Enigma - one each in 2019 and 2020.
Launching in 2021, will be The Betrayal; a rye whisky - which is in the lineup for our tasting in February.
