Born of drought, fire, flood and ice over millennia, Australia’s native hardwoods give Goodradigbee Distillers’ Australian hardwood malt spirits its unique taste.
Goodradigbee is a very different distiller from the adherents to the traditional scotch whisky production methodology. We mature spirits in Australian hardwood cubes, not French or American oak barrels that have had someone else’s sherry, port, or bourbon in them to provide flavour to the new make spirit. Goodradigbee is an innovation business that is establishing a completely new category – an Australian hardwood malt spirit. Using Australian hardwoods creates a unique provenance, and typically a soft, sweet, and mellow taste profile. It is something we Aussie distillers can truly own, instead of copying the Scottish method like everyone else. The real opportunity is to differentiate Australian hardwood aged malt spirit, and Australian hardwood whisky. Goodradigbee is at the forefront of this new and hopefully burgeoning category.
The Goodradigbee River winds its way through the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales. It rises from the aquifers deep below Mount Morgan, and is fed further by the pure snow melt from Kosciusko National Park as it traverses its almost entirely heavily forested catchment. It is the inspiration behind our unique Goodradigbee Distillers spirits. Our first batch of Australian hardwood malt spirits were created to challenge what you thought you knew about malts. Please enjoy this unique taste.
