The Tiger Snake Story
Released in 2012, Tiger Snake Whiskey is the second style of whiskey, or whisky, to emerge from Great Southern Distilling Company, after its award winning and globally recognised Limeburners Whisky. Only 259 bottles of this whiskey were bottled.
Using a classic grain bill of corn, rye and malted barley, and occasionally including the old hybrid grain triticale, all of which are sourced entirely from Western Australia, 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.
This mixed grain 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.
