It's back! This is our second release of Blunderbuss, a unique collaboration between Bakery Hill Distillery and Hop Nation Brewery of Footscray in the west of Melbourne.
Blunderbuss 2022 Edition
For the last three years, Hop Nation have produced an amazing Imperial Stout beer - The Kalash - which has spent many months in Bakery Hill whisky barrels to produce a unique and rich flavour profile.
We have reclaimed a number of these barrels -freshly emptied of beer, and refilled with 6 year old Bakery Hill Classic whisky spirit. The whisky has then spent time finishing in the ex-stout barrel before decanting and bottling.
In this 2022 vintage we have dialled up the intensity with a bold 58% abv, and have extended the maturation in stout barrels to two full years. With this finish added to the long prior maturation in american oak barrels, the spirit serves up a kaleidoscopic sensation of wonderfully dense and rich whisky.
With only one barrel (approx 250 bottles) available, snap up your piece of history as it won't be around again for a number of years.
