NED Australian Whisky

NED Australian Whisky is a whisky for the people. We’re not bound by tradition, we take the best from American sour mash production and combine that with single malt techniques to make our proudly Australian whisky. We’re unafraid to do things differently and that’s why we make our whisky unlike anyone else. Distilled and matured in the dynamic Melbourne climate, the result is a bold and smooth combination of caramel, honey, golden syrup and dark chocolate flavours. Made for sharing, celebrating and enjoying however you drink your whisky.

Ledaig Sinclair Series Rioja Cask Finish

We bet you’ve never seen a Scotch whisky quite like this. A new experience of flavour and colour, the Ledaig Sinclair is inspired by the Spanish galleon which sank off the harbour of Tobermory Distillery more than 400 years ago and was believed to have been laden with jewels. The signature expression is finished in hand selected Rioja casks in honour of that buried Spanish treasure. On the palate, notes of Turkish delight and rose petals are balanced with candied fruits and grapes, followed by rich leather, a beautiful peppery spice and a hint of chocolate at the back. It ends with a lingering smoke, red fruit and sea spray. Bottled at natural colour, non-chilled filtered at 46.3 per cent ABV.

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Bourbon Barrel-Aged wines

Dad likes both wine and bourbon? Why not get him both. Once the wine is ready to age, used bourbon barrels add nuances of toasty oak, brown sugar, and vanilla. Using bourbon barrels in the aging process has a transformative effect, creating layers of flavours that bring a deeper level of complexity. Bold flavours for a bold man.

SoHi Potato Crisp Vodka

Pure air, constant rain and rich soil, the NSW Southern Highlands are spud heaven. We’ve used local gold from fourth generation growers to make a potato vodka with more texture, viscosity and crunch. A fresh earthy scent; a little like the morning after rain.  A full, smooth palate texture, that’s so creamy. It’s made for a refreshing SoHi&SoDa or a fabulous martini, and a side of crisps.

El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva

El Tequileño Reposado Gran Reserva is aged for a minimum of eight months in American oak and blended with a small amount of Añejo also aged in American oak. This is a perfectly balanced tequila with real character. You can expect aromas of banana, caramelised pear, nutmeg, vanilla and caramel as well as flavours of light oak, vanilla, toffee and macadamia nuts. Best enjoyed on the rocks, in a Tommy’s margarita or a Mexican Old Fashioned. A must for all.

McWilliam’s Very Rare 30-Year Aged Tawny

The most premium of the McWilliam’s new look Hanwood Estate range, this is an extremely rare tawny. The wine is extremely intense and complex, with the classic rancio aged oak characters very apparent. The palate is deliciously luscious and wonderfully elegant and refined, with flavours of Christmas cake, malt, toffee, and hints of dark chocolate.

Twenty Third Street Distillery Classic Ouzo

This new release classic ouzo is massively aromatic with sweet, clean fennel notes deepening to caraway and star anise. A full and round palate with just enough sweetness shows refreshing and assertive spice, with herbal flavours followed by pleasant lingering liquorice warmth.

Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

The Signature is a wine that brings people together and it has been that way since 1962. It is about family and the moments together that become lifelong memories. A refined and complex palate that is delightfully fresh with seamlessly integrated oak. Generous red berry fruit wrapped in finely honed tannins.

Kilikanoon Ashton 1920 Mataro 2020

One of three limited new release pinnacle wines from Kilikanoon, the 2020 vintage is the first release of this vine, made from the Ashton vineyard which was planted in 1920. A single varietal Mataro, it is intense and muscular with Surprisingly silky tannins blending in beautifully. The finish is long and held up with by perfectly balanced acidity.

Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Buffalo Trace Bourbon is a great bourbon for all dads who love a cheeky bourbon whiskey on the rocks with a Sunday BBQ. Featuring rich flavours of toffee, vanilla and molasses – this flavour profile pairs perfectly with a Father’s Day Sunday roast as it can be used as a sauce or marinade or combined with something sweeter like a caramel sauce.

Lyre’s Spirit Co’s non-alcoholic Negroni Set
