The debut release from The New Zealand Malt Whisky Company, the DoubleWood 10 year old was distilled at closed Willowbank in Dunedin on the South Island before being matured for 6 years in American oak and finished for 4 in French oak barrels formerly used to hold red wine.
This bottling was produced at Willowbank distillery and originally intended to be Lammerlaw single malt, the distillery closed in 2000 when the stills were sent to Fiji for rum production. The stocks were subsequently bought by The New Zealand Malt Whisky Company, who have released this delightful spicy and fruity expression.
