Born from our connection to the Western Australian Wheatbelt and our good mates who farm there. Our Wheatbelt Series showcases the heritage of our humble local farmers and the provenance of their premium grain.
Since starting the distillery in 2013, we have been planning to craft a single malt whiskey and now, the wait is over! After many years of planning, trials and tribulations, we have created a recipe that will stand the test of time and uphold the true Whipper Snapper standards. Our trademark DNA is carried through from our award-winning Ex-Upshot whiskey barrels, bringing you our first signature Whipper Snapper – Single Malt Whiskey.
We are proud to produce local, quality products and, with exceptional grains farmed across the Nyoongar boodja (Wheatbelt) region, it was an easy decision for us to continually support the farming families in our own backyard. A uniquely audacious approach to an Australian single malt, we have used a premium barley variety, known as Spartacus. Grown within this region, and malted locally here in Perth, this variety of grain is a proven gladiator within the agricultural community.
From farm to ferment; we use open-top fermentation that allows for a warmer fermentation, meaning more fruit-forward characters and depth in esters are derived from the grain.
We use a unique distilling style that works in line with our recipe, building trademark quality and flavour. Our hybrid column still is configured to run four plates, cutting hearts at 30% ABV. This gives us only the best hearts spirit, bringing out a savoury, fruity, oily single malt distillate at an overall average ABV of 63%.
Patiently aged for four years in our Perth Mediterranean climate, this is a new era of single malt capturing the essence of WA. As with all our products, it is perfect for enjoying across all seasons and in good company.
