Double Wood Single Malt (Farewell Bayswater Release)

To celebrate our history with Bayswater and Melbourne’s Outer East, and in the lead up to our relocation to Kensington in 2022 - We have created a limited amount of commemorative bottles titled “Farewell Bayswater 1999-2022”

These will be the final bottlings of Bakery Hill Whisky, created, distilled and matured completely from our original Bayswater North distillery on the famous Gatwick Rd. Each bottle also comes with a specially penned note of gratitude from founder and head distiller David Baker, who started it all in 1999.

Our Double Wood expression is a reflection of the impact of rich, soft oak on the pure Bakery Hill unpeated new make spirit.

Our Classic spirit is initially matured for up to 7 years in American Oak Ex-Bourbon barrels from Jack Daniels, before being transferred to a virgin French Oak ex-wine barrel, shaved back to bare wood, and then given a light toast to highlight the oak itself – rather than any of the previous contents of the barrel. Single barrel maturation to ensure you get every ounce of flavour without blending.

The interplay between both American and French Oak styles ensure a unique richness of flavour alongside fresh vibrancy of the spirit.

If you enjoy a rich multi dimensional whisky which tastes like Christmas in a glass - the Double Wood is the Bakery Hill whisky for you.

The Double Wood is the whisky to appeal to taste buds of both newcomers to the pleasures of Single Malt whisky and connoisseurs alike.

A rich burnished bronze.

The nose opens with the slightest hint of apricot, coconut and plum, going on to reveal an intermingling of golden syrup and plum pudding warmed by the spicy hint of cloves.

Subdued, mouth filling with orange marmalade overtones with the characteristic rich nougat sweetness and well balanced oak.

Rounded, well finished and lingering to the very end.
