Tasting Notes (1)

How It's Made

When this whisky was distilled, Thomson had only one still, meaning that the wash and spirit runs were completed in the same single copper pot. Drawing inspiration from Balcones in Texas, the still has been modified to have a longer neck, helping create an oily spirit with lots of body. While the barley that this whisky was made with came from New Zealand’s South Island, the distillery itself is located near Auckland on the North Island, and the maritime climate and stable temperatures throughout the year are key when it comes to making its whisky.

About Thomson Whisky New Zealand

Craft distillery Thomson began as an independent bottler, starting out with a handful of barrels from the now-closed Willowbank Distillery, which once distilled in Dunedin on New Zealand’s South Island. As the business grew, Thomson launched its own distillery near Auckland in 2014, starting out with only one still. Now the distillery has, along with years of experience, two hand-beaten copper pot stills and a pair of gin stills, and has created a range of New Zealand single malts, grain whisky and gins with a blend of traditional techniques and contemporary ideas.

    Mike Smith,

    If you could bottle Autumn it would taste like this. Baked apples, plums and smoky vanilla take it in turns to run around your mouth. Simply gorgeous!
