Sullivans Cove run low on award winner.
The distillery has announced that it’ll be forced to limit sales of its French Oak cask single malt over the next five years to ensure continued availability.
If you’re in Australia, there’s no need to panic – but in order to keep up with local demands, Sullivans Cove will be keeping exports of the whisky to a minimum.
It probably not too surprising the French Oak cask is such a hit – it’s Australian’s highest awarded whisky, and it boasts a 96.5-point rating in Jim Murray’s 2013 Whisky Bible.
“The industry has come a very long way over the past few years and this is exactly the situation that we hoped we would be in one day, we just didn’t expect it to happen this soon.” said Chief Distiller Patrick Maguire.
“It is a great problem to have and we are making all efforts to ensure that sufficient stock remains available for our Australian customers.”
