FLEURIEU DISTILLERY

Live A Life Less Ordinary

The Fleurieu Peninsula proudly weathers the wild southern ocean. In the lee of the mount lofty ranges, the fleurieu coast extends from the sandy surf beaches of coorong to the windswept rugged clifftops of the cape. Situated on the waters edge in the river port of goolwa is our distillery. It is here the whisky develops expressive maple and vanilla oak overtones mixed with spicy sea-air aromas. These elegantly combine to create a smooth bodied character that comes only from maturation on the southern coast.

Come visit us….Travel the winding roads of the Fleurieu.

Three gold medals, two silver, and our peated whisky Jabberwocky gained Best Whisky Trophy for 2021 at the Tasting Australia Spirits Awards in Adelaide.

Many thanks to the Tasting Australia team, the judging panel and the sponsor Master Cask Australia for a fabulous event.

We’d also like to extend our congratulations to all those who gained recognition for their spirits, especially our fellow South Australians…

Thanks @sadistillerytrail for sharing the stories behind South Australian spirits!

The Bivouac has been a delicious whisky to mark significant changes ahead!

Posted @withregram • @sadistillerytrail We’re still with @fleurieudistillery today with another of their recent releases, The Bivouac.

The Bivouac is an acknowledgement of another pivotal moment for @fleurieudistillery and at @fleurieudistillery there is somewhat of a tradition of producing a special whisky to mark pivotal points in their whisky journey. The Bivouac signifies a temporary resting point in their journey before launching into a new campaign and exploring new horizons.

Sounds exciting, and the whisky sounds delicious too!

“Bright polished copper in colour, on the nose The Bivouac displays hints of dried fruit, golden syrup and orange rind. Light toffee characters, sweet stone fruit and a spice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice on the palate, finishing with Medjool dates and tamarind with sweet tangerine over a touch of maritime salt.”

Every Fleurieu whisky has its own story to tell and we love sharing them with you! Thanks Ainsley @sadistillerytrail 😘

Posted @withregram • @sadistillerytrail Today’s recent spirit release comes to you from @fleurieudistillery located on the wharf in the beautiful river port of Goolwa, and we can assure you that this is one very unique drop.

The French phrase ‘de Garde’ literally means ‘to keep’. Europeans have a habit of buying wines, spirits and even some ales to lay them down in cellars ready for the hard times. Us Aussies, however, generally consume 95 % of what we purchase from the cellar door within the first few weeks of purchase.

After sifting through museum stock @fleurieudistillery noticed that their first fill cask whiskies had changed over time. They were much softer in comparison to the original tasting notes taken when they were first released. And that's how the concept of Whisky de Garde was born.

Bottled at cask strength, Whisky de Garde is a Single Malt that has been specifically designed to be opened in August 2026 – five years from its release. While a lovely balanced sipper now, @fleurieudistillery believe it will be softer and rounder in five years and therein lies the challenge!

@fleurieudistillery will be keeping stock aside for the grand opening of this cask strength single malt in 2026 – can you?

Story books and whisky stories... a perfect combination 👌🏻

Posted @withregram • @talkingbarrels 📖 I open a book and the world is filled with stories.

⚓ Stories of sailors travelling through mysterious mists that taste of salt and brine.

🍑 Stories of children stealing plums from a witch's garden.

🐉Stories of heroes taming fierce, fire breathing dragons.

& even a story of two star-crossed whisky barrels named Popeye and Olive.

It just so happens that today my book of choice is a bottle of @fleurieudistillery Cartoon Lurve.

Australian craftsmanship at its best @burnswelding 🙌

Posted @withregram • @wordstowhisky Good things come in small packages!

Our tiniest copper pot still in the distillery was beautifully positioned on its own ‘stage’ - a custom made stainless steel table crafted by Mark Burns @burnswelding

Aptly named Baird, this tiny storyteller will begin to reveal a new spirited venture in the coming months.
