The Gospel Straight Australian Rye Whiskey (700ml)



The Gospel Straight Australian Rye Whiskey (700ml)

The Gospel Straight Rye Whiskey is made from 100% Australian Mallee Rye, grown in one of the driest regions of the driest country in the world. We use 100% rye mash - double distilled and then aged for at least two years in new American Oak barrels in Melbourne, Australia.
Flavour notes: Full flavoured Rye, fresh baked rye bread on the nose, caramel and spice on the palette. Drink neat, on the rocks or as a great base to a Red Hook cocktail.

The Gospel is an Australian distillery set in the backstreets of Melbourne’s eclectic Brunswick neighbourhood. Ben and Andrew designed and built a distillery big enough to match their dreams, but small enough to remain hands on where it matters. The distillery produces up to five barrels of whiskey per day and is tailored to produce a flavoursome yet refined rye whiskey to the team’s exacting standards.

It is widely believed that whiskey was first distilled for medicinal use by monks and apothecaries in Scotland and Ireland. The distillation of whiskey evolved as it moved from monastic to secular, as it did with the path of migration over hundreds of years.

Early Scotch-Irish settlers in the USA used rye to make whiskey because barley didn’t adapt to the North American climate. These conditions are also true for the dry climate of Australia, where we set out to reimagine this original American spirit using 100% Australian rye.

We use the proven techniques of the world’s most famous distilleries, coupled with the attention to detail that only a craftsman can offer, to create rye whiskey with passion, integrity, tradition and belief.

Whiskey is religion, rye is the gospel.
