Limited-edition Westward American single malt pinot noir cask launches in Australia

Posted by Media Release Agency on 3rd September 2020

Westward American Single Malt Pinot Noir Cask Finish, a truly elegant expression of Westward Whiskey, influenced by Oregon’s premier varietal: Pinot Noir. This expression won’t last long with only 60 bottles hitting Australian shores. Created in partnership with Suzor Wines, a coveted producer in the Willamette Valley, Oregon’s revered winemaking region, this small batch release is bound to be a collector’s item.

Westward Oregon Pinot Noir Cask Finish is made from scratch at Portland distillery using Pacific Northwest two-row barley, brewed with American pale ale yeast for outstanding flavour, double pot distilled for exceptional character, and matured in 2-char, kiln dried 53-gallon new American oak barrels. Once fully matured, this batch of whiskey was finished for 19 months in French Oak wine casks that had previously held Pinot Noir from Suzor Wines.

In Australia this product will be available from The Oak Barrel Sydney and Cambridge Cellars Melbourne.
