Belgrove Rye Australian Whisky (500ml)
Volume: 500ml ABV: 46% Age: No Age Statement Country: Australia
There’s no distillery in the world that we know of that is as raw as Belgrove. Peter Bignall the owner and operator is a whisky wizard. He grow his own ryecorn to produce 100% rye whisky. He built his own copper pot still from scratch which is powered by biofuel which is used cooking oil, from a roadhouse next to his farm. Hot water is also biofuel heated. Peter’s tractors, forklift and truck also run on Biodiesel made from the used cooking oil. The only significant material Peter brings to the farm is waste cooking oil and the main product to leave is whisky. The spent mash is fed to the Belgrove sheep. Cooling water comes from the nearby dam and the waste water is either recycled or used for irrigation, including the next rye crop. Brewing and diluting water is harvested from the roof of the distillery farm sheds – there’s a lot of farm sheds. Yeast is often reused. This operation resinates with the terms “sustainable” “closed loop” “small carbon footprint” “green” “farm based” “value adding” “craft” “low food miles”. Belgrove Distillery is the future of whisky distillation with low impact on the environment and high impact on flavour. Jim Murray well known whisky writer and author of The Whisky Bible has rated this whisky ‘Liquid Gold’. We urge you to delve deeper.
Using 100% Rye grown by peter himself. Could this be the most sustainable whisky on the planet! We’re excited by it and you should be too. Bottled at 45% ABV.
