To celebrate the launch of its first whisky, Coastal Stone, Manly Spirits has partnered with The Whisky List to conduct a virtual tasting.

The tasting will see Manly Spirits’ co-founder and head distiller, David Whittaker will join The Whisky List team and take attendees through the new whisky, new make spirit and as well as a few sneak peaks at what else is in progress and to come.

Speaking about the new whisky, Whittaker said: “It has been a true passion since my twenties to create whisky that embraces our home turf and uses techniques of fermenting well-learnt from our surrounding craft brewing industry.

“Adding a barrel selection policy mastered from the Scots with an Australian way of pushing tradition slightly aside we have been able to create a premium Australian whisky that reflects our artisan way of doing things”.

Coastal Stone is the new whisky brand and the Element Series comprises five distinct whisky styles from five different casks; Sherry, Pinot, Bourbon, Port and Shiraz.

Vanessa Wilton, Co-founder, and designer of Coastal Stone, said: “Holding back this release has been the hardest thing when you just want to share it with those who have been following the Manly Spirits Co. journey. Allowing our barrels another 6 months to hit that flavour profile which you feel will make it standout and be a proud representation of our whisky has made the wait all worthwhile.”
