Melbourne based independent bottler Liquor Library has joined forces with French specialist retailer La Maison du Whisky in a world first for both groups - the bottling of a single cask from Australia’s most iconic single malt whisky distillery, Sullivans Cove. This bottling was shown as a worldwide pre-release at Singapore Whisky Live 2018, the premier whisky event in the South-East Asia region.
After carefully tasting many cask samples, Jose Dymenstein (Owner of Casa de Vinos & Liquor Library), Mathieu Musnier (General Manager of La Maison du Whisky, Singapore), chose a rare cask of single malt whisky to bottle under their own label. This cask, number TD0114, has been aged for twelve years in a 225L French oak barrique previously used to mature Australian white wine. Significantly different in style from the distillery’s official releases, yet expressing unmistakeable Sullivans Cove character, this cask yielded only 268 bottles of truly unique Australian whisky. Bottled at 58% ABV, no chill-filtration or colouring was used, making this everything collectors and drinkers have come to expect from a premier independent bottling.
The original artwork for the label was crated by Tasmanian artist Tom Samek. Samek is a Czech artist who has lived and worked in Tasmania since 1971. Samek makes prints, etchings, and wood carvings that revel in the indulgences of food and drink, adopting a whimsical view of Australian customs and language. The artwork, carved in Tasmanian Huon Pine, was commissioned exclusively for Liquid Library, La Maison du Whisky and Sullivans Cove Distillery.
