Award-winning Australian whisky distillery, Amber Lane, from the NSW Central Coast is now available for distribution through The Whisky List.

Amber Lane has picked up a number of awards during its first year of commercial operations including Category winner – Australian Small Batch Single Malt and gold medals at the World Whiskies Awards 2023, and gold and double gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Awards 2023.

Amber Lane is double-distilled using 100 per cent Australian malted barley in a 3600L copper still that is modelled on one from Springbank distillery in Campbeltown, Scotland.

Cellar Master Rod Berry also draws on his extensive research and technical knowledge studying Cognac production, utilising Cognac style maturation and blending techniques in some expressions, which have proven to be highly popular.

Speaking about the partnership with The Whisky List, Berry said: “We launched our first whisky to market less than 18 months ago and have already established a strong fanbase of loyal customers through strong online and cellar door sales, with many of our first batches selling out quickly after release.

“We’ve been prioritising a liquid on lips strategy, showcasing our whiskies at various tasting events and whisky shows across the country to great success.

“As we move into our next phase of growth, we’ve selected an ideal partner with the team at The Whisky List who have demonstrated a strong network both on and off premise, with a deep appreciation for quality whisky and a commitment to customer satisfaction.”

Oliver Maruda, Co-Founder of The Whisky List, added: , “There is significant demand for quality Australian whisky matured in Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry casks. I would even say that Amber Lane’s unique flavour profile and style of whisky is akin to that of traditional sherry cask matured Scotch Whiskies like Macallan, Glenfarclas, and GlenDronach. On first taste, you’ll discover the rich, complex flavours of Amber Lane, and I know fans of Scotch whisky will gravitate towards this Australian distillery.

“Amber Lane’s tall format 700ml premium bottles make for a great top shelf whisky on any venue’s premium collection. Their whiskies pair well with food, or as I prefer, neat next to a campfire on a brisk winter night for that real Aussie feel.”

Australian consumers can anticipate the highly acclaimed Amber Lane Silk Road, Sleigh Bells, Noble Lane, Equinox and Liquid Amber expressions plus limited edition expressions such as Double Gold medal-winning Apera 087, to be available for purchase at select retailers and bars across Australia and through The Whisky List’s online platform.
