Four years of hard work including countless trials have culminated in a 100% locally made innovative whiskey, designed to intrigue and excite the palate.
This is Australia’s first Quinoa whiskey and second ever worldwide. Boasting a unique and expensive majority quinoa (65%), along with 25% corn and 10% malted barley.
The golden variety quinoa is grown locally, near Narrogin in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. In fact the quinoa is Australia’s first commercially grown, by our friends, 3 Farmers Quinoa.
We mature the whiskey in barrels previously used for our award-winning Upshot Australian whiskey then patiently aged it for 3 years right here in Perth’s perfect whiskey climate.
Project Q will be sure to test the palate, grain forward and sharply integrated, this whiskey will change your perception of what an Australian whiskey can be!
This whiskey has a very complex flavour profile with earthy and herbaceous notes, it sure makes a delicious Sazerac!
