Love Australian Whisky? Here’s what you’re missing…

Australian Whiskies:

Like all best things in life, Australian Whisky deserves a list with the best of the best. Since the revival of Australian Whisky (following the end of the Prohibition Distillation Act in Tasmania), renowned brands like Lark, Starward, Morris and Sullivans Cove have consistently topped the list for many whisky collectors, gathering countless awards along the way.

Given the global demand for Australian whisky, we were determined that Club members wouldn’t be missing out on any Aussie special releases. This was the start of a long and great relationships between The Whisky Club and many of the most prestigious Australian whisky brands and amazing hidden-gem distilleries that were too good to remain hidden. Therefore, we came up with a list of the best Australian whiskies released by The Whisky Club.

What makes Australian Whisky so unique?

The Australian whisky industry has incorporated innovations to remain ahead of the game in the creation of top-quality whiskies and new flavours. The perfect climate, local production and crystal-clear water have also been an advantage for Aussie producers.

Brands like Starward have used local wine barrels to mature their spirits. On top of that, Melbourne’s climate has helped to accelerate the maturation process, making them one of the biggest whisky producers and the first commercial scale single malt distillery in the country. In 2022, it also received a significant milestone when the distillery earned top honours at the San Francisco Spirits Competition.

Due to its many incredible whiskies and distilleries, Tasmania has become the whisky-region-to-watch inside the Australian whisky scene. Names like Lark, Sullivans Cove, and Hellyers Road have achieve national and international recognition.

Today, Hellyers Road Distillery has become the biggest selling local whisky in Australia, and it can also be found all around the globe. Their trademark is fruity notes and rich malt characteristics, using predominantly Tasmanian barley. Their peated whiskies comes from a very small amount of peated barley imported from Scotland.

We can’t talk about Tasmanian Whisky without mentioning Lark Distillery, responsible for the rebirth of whisky production in the island and bringing Australian whisky back to the scene. Lark has also become another local legend to take the world after one of its founders, Bill Lark, was inducted into the Whisky Magazine Hall of Fame (a first for the southern hemisphere). After that, it gathered many World Whiskies Awards in the following years with its innovative Tasmanian single malt and blended whiskies.

With no further introductions needed, we’ve rounded the top 10 Australian whiskies from the Club that you need in your shelf (if you were lucky enough to get them all):

Lark The Rising Tide

In partnership with The Whisky Club, The Rising Tide was crafted by Bill Lark and his successor, Chris Thomsom. The result was a marvellous blend of six Tasmanian single malts, handpicked by Bill himself and showcasing the best of the region and distilleries.

Morris Tokay Barrel

Crafted exclusively for The Whisky Club, this Morris Tokay Barrel was so special that it took the world in no time after its release. Winning Double Gold medal at the world’s most prestigious spirits competition, the 2022 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and Master at the Spirits Business Luxury Masters 2022.

Matured in rejuvenated wine casks and finished in hand selected fresh Topaque barrels, this amazing Australian whisky from Morris of Rutherglen is a sitcky, decadent dessert whisky for connoisseurs and enthusiasts.

Starward Pedro Ximenez Cask

After smashing awards through and through during the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022 and 2023, Starward is ready for another round with this new sherry bomb release in partnership with The Whisky Club.

This is the first Staward in Pedro Ximénez in 7 years and, being one of the first ones to use this type of cask in Australia, some of their older PX cask releases can now be found for more than $800 in the secondary market. This new Staward Pedro Ximenez Cask brings a big mulberry jam & raisin toast palate backed up by fruitcake, caramel, and cacao nib. Yummy!

Sullivans Cove French Oak

The Sullivans Cove French Oak is a part of Australian whisky history. It was the first whisky not from Scotland or Japan to win “World’s Best Single Malt” at the World Whiskies Awards, back in 2014. A single cask whisky aged in French Oak ex-tawny barrels, with only 516 bottles coming from that batch in 2013 (HH0525).

As most of the bottles were sold (and probably opened) before the awards, we’ve managed to get our hands to one bottle of this legendary whisky and sold it to one lucky member through one of our ballots. Some of the remaining unopened bottles had a price tag of $25,000, but the lucky winner only needed to pay $525, an amazing price for this piece of whisky history.

Lark 30th Anniversary Edition

To help celebrate 30 years since Bill and Lyn Lark (famously know as the Godparents of Tasmanian whisky) revived the Australian Single Malt industry, Lark and The Whisky Club crafted an epic whisky: Lark 30th Anniversary Edition.

In the words of Bill Lark this whisky is “just sensational. Truly one of the best Lark whiskies I've tasted. Perfect to celebrate 30 years.”. Lark 30th Anniversary Edition is a combination of 65% Port, 25% Sherry, 8% Bourbon, and 2% Rum casks that, once combined, were further finished in rich Australian Muscat casks.

Archie Rose Solera Strength Rye

The three-time-voted World’s Best Rye Whisky got an upgrade as a Whisky Club exclusive. The meticulously hand-crafted rye whisky was added to the solera vat to combine with a small portion of every batch whisky Archie Rose has ever released.

The result was delicious notes of Vanilla éclairs and sherbet, apricots and peaches, toffee, ice-cream and creaming soda. Topped with a beautiful amber with copper highlights colour.

Hellyers Road 21 Year Old Single Cask

This is officially the oldest bottling of an Australian single cask whisky to date! This single malt was fully matured in American Oak Cask and distilled by one of the founders of the modern Australian whisky industry back ion 2002.

Two decades later, the result is an impressive natural cask strength single malt smoother than silk and full of flavours. Think notes of tropical fruits and orange blossom, alongside waves of thick butterscotch and soft nuttiness. This Australian whisky is definitely a collectable piece of Tasmanian whisky history.

Corowa Peated Single Malt

This exclusive single malt from Corowa was specially crafted for our members who are fans of peated whisky, fulfilling their anticipation for an Australian smoky expression that rivals the famous region of Islay in Scotland.

The malt comes from the same supplier as Octomore (famous for being the most peated whisky in the world), and it was combined with Australian production and maturation methods. Expect tropical fruit, vanilla, rich smoky peat, honey, and campfire coals. A peated Aussie whisky as it should be hand-crafted on the banks of the mighty Murray River.

Overeem Tokay Cask

Matured in Port and Sherry casks before a second maturation in South Australian Tokay casks, this Overeem is a perfect example of what the distillery has to offer at its best. Created for members of The Whisky Club by one of Tasmania’s whisky pioneers, this single male is jammed with juicy orange, Jersey caramel and milk chocolate. Another perfect whisky to have at the at the top of the whisky shelf.

Starward Tawny Fortified Single Cask

When our Whisky of the Month “Starward finished in Tawny Fortified Casks” was being moved from barrels to bottles, Starward noticed that some casks were really standing out! That’s when the idea of bringing an intensified, cask-strength version of this fabulous whisky came to fruition. Aging it further and dialling up in flavour, this became a very special limited-edition of a Whisky Club success. Definitely worth mentioning and closing this list with the best Australian whiskies released by TWC.

Why do you want my payment details straight away?

When you join, you'll enter all the details we need to get you your monthly delivery of whisky goodness. So that means we'll need your delivery address as well as your payment details.

Don't worry though, there's no charge being made just yet. In fact, unless you place an order from your Account, we won't charge your card until the next Whisky Of The Month, which of course you can skip if you like.

I don't have a credit card, can I still join?

No credit card? No stress. Any debit card you might use at an ATM will work just fine.

What if I don't want one of the whiskies, or want extras?

We're human... we understand that there are plenty of reasons why you mightn't want, or be able to get our excellent whiskies some months. If you need to sit out a month, that's no drama, just log into your account and hit the Opt Out button between the first Friday of the month, and midnight that Sunday (Sydney time).

We also know just how good our whiskies are, and that there might be times you want more than you normally get. Can't really blame you! If you want extras, just log into your account and increase your order between the first Friday of the month, and midnight that Sunday (Sydney time).

Can you deliver to a PO Box/Parcel Locker/Parcel Collect address?

That whisky you had a few months back, can I get one?
