STARWARD WHISKY launches GINGER BEER CASK #7
Ginger Beer Cask #7, is back (just in time to celebrate World Whisky Day), filled with the zingy and zesty goodness that you have been dreaming about, since Starward's last release in May 2021. A single malt whisky that is fresh in terms of profile as well as ‘cool’ factor. We were given a bottle to enjoy and we were highly impressed by the ginger nuances, quality of the whisky, and the innovation and fun!
This release has a star-studded profile of ginger, orange and dark chocolate with oaky vanilla and the signature Starward tropical notes shining on the palate. You don’t need to be a seasoned whisky lover to enjoy the zesty and sweet spice of this whisky. It is perfect in cocktails, poured neat and even better when shared amongst friends and loved ones.
Commenting on this year’s Ginger Beer Cask #7 release, Starward Founder Dave Vitale said “Ginger Beer is known for its versatility, vibrancy, and fun. The reason so, is because it came to be from a distillery playing around and experimenting with amazing ingredients. Back in 2014, our distillers put their brewer hats on and had a go at brewing a ginger beer. What expression comes forward each release is purely dependent on what they’ve played with this year. Even when we have a Double Gold medal for a release, like Ginger Beer Cask #6 from the 2022 San Francisco World Spirit Competition, they still try to find a new way to elevate, play or have fun with flavour.”
Crafted with our signature single malt whisky, Starward Ginger Beer Cask is finished in Starward whisky barrels, of which recently held the distillery made ginger beer. This year’s ginger beer recipe was jam- packed with more fresh ginger than ever before and aged only in American oak ex-Starward casks, offering bolder vanilla and spice notes.
Ginger Beer Cask #7 will be released in a 700ml bottle for $149.00. Available from the 20th of May for purchase via Starward's website www.starward.com.auand at leading national retailers. Although, if their previous Ginger Beer Cask releases are anything to go by, this highly sought-after whisky could be sold out quickly.
