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 Peated Single Malt attracts both peated whisky lovers as well as those previously averse to the heavier smokier elements of single malts.

In our Peated expression, rather than overpowering the malt with smoke, the peat acts as a complimentary flavour to the sweet, floral and fresh notes of the spirit.

Something to savour and enjoy.

The malted barley is “peated” in northern Scotland and exhibits a more “Highland” style peat, which produces an “earthier” rounded peat smoke with minimal “medicinal/iodine” notes. We have deliberately kept the peating level to a low/medium amount to ensure balance and to encourage the other sweeter flavour profiles to shine through.

Milling of the grain, brewing and distilling is then conducted in our Melbourne distillery, before maturing in American Oak ex-bourbon barrels from Jack Daniels for up to 8 years.

Single barrel maturation to ensure you get every ounce of flavour without blending.

Our Peated Single malt will appeal to traditional Islay whisky lovers of Laphroaig/Ardbeg/Bowmore, as well those looking for a classic Single Malt with a bit of extra body and mouthfeel.

Colour
Rich, golden russet.

Nose
A subdued peat aroma combined with natural leather and overtones of kumquat and fruit mince tart. Sweet, but not overly so.

Palate
The palate reveals a tobacco leaf earthiness with layer upon layer of complex smoke intermingling with toffee and honeycomb. Lingers on the lips and palate, demanding just one more sip.

Finish
Astonishingly long and complex, an exotic mix of experiences.

Size
