The guys over at Redlands distillery are one of only two Distillery’s in the world that produce their whiskey in a “hops to hipflask” style. Everything from their water source, to their hops fields, and their stills are located within a few hundred meters. Their business sits on a beautiful estate which has been home to many different makers. This land has accommodated everything from a convict bakery, to a sheep shearer, and at one point it was Australia’s first electric dairy farm. The whisky was damn fine, and I think what their doing is worth taking a look into.
I’ve said a few times on this blog that if you want to have a go at a few whiskies to see what you like, find a good whisky bar. Easier said than done! I live in Glasgow so am well served by bars that have whisky but making a good whisky bar takes a little more than just whisky on the shelves….
