It all began with a sketch on a piece of paper in a Melbourne pub and a dream to craft an Australian whisky for everyone. Six years down the track, that dream has turned into reality.
NED selects some of the finest Australian grain to mash and ferment using a proprietary process that takes the best of single malt production and combines it with sour mash techniques to create a spirit that is fiercely independent and unlike anything that has come before it.
And Melbourne’s climate provides the perfect stage, its temperature variations across all seasons encouraging the whisky to move slowly in and out of the oak, drawing the mellowness from the barrel as it does.
Aged in second fill oak, NED Australian whisky is finished in new heavily-charred oak until it has its signature boldness and character.
But that’s not where it ends. Before being hand bottled and labelled, NED Australian whisky is gently charcoal filtered for smoothness and then transferred to large European Oak vats for final blending and consistency.
Every bottle is uniquely Australian in every sense. The result is a limited batch Australian whisky that shines being mixed, stirred and sometimes even shaken.
