The Tiger Snake Story
Released in 2012, "Tiger Snake" Whiskey is the second style of whiskey to emerge from Great Southern Distilling Company, after its award winning and globally recognised "Limeburners" Whisky.
Using a classic mix of corn, rye and malted barley, with an occasional addition of the old hybrid grain triticale (rye/wheat), Tiger Snake is a full flavoured sour mash bursting with tones of vanilla, caramel and hazelnuts.
Like Champagne recognises wine from the great region in France, Bourbon is also a geographic indicator, so in Australia we refer to this style as a Sour Mash Whiskey, indicative of the grain mashing process unique to Bourbon. Tiger Snake is made in the Bourbon style from grain grown entirely in Western Australia.
This whiskey is richly textured with elegant spices and fruit with a smooth creamy finish.
Each batch is bottled at the distillery in Albany and numbered in keeping with our small batch tradition.
Batch 11 yielded 1350 bottles.
