Named Two-Fold for its wheat and barley make-up, this whisky is beautifully smooth, balancing vanilla and tropical fruit with spices and sharp red berry notes.
This is a whisky to enjoy neat or on ice, but also operates well with a splash of tonic water. Move over gin, your time is up!

Every whisky lover should experience ‘new spirit’. This is the purest form of whisky before it goes into barrels, and to be able to taste 100% rye before it meets wood is quite something.
From legendary distiller Peter Bignell, this spirit has a peppery smokiness from the rye that lengthens out into full-bodied fruitiness and a creamy mouthfeel.
This whisky will take a bloody Mary to a different galaxy. And as a boilermaker with a good IPA, you can’t go wrong here.

Some may say it’s sacrilege, but the combination of cask-strength Australian whisky tempered by pure cold-drip coffee creates a rich blend of berries, poached apple, caramelised sugar and nougat.
