MELBOURNE CRAFT. MELBOURNE CULTURE

This limited edition release sauce is jammed full with a Habanero & Jalapeno mash aged at Starward’s Port Melbourne distillery in barrels that previously held their signature Nova Single Malt. We then produced & barrel aged our own custom spiced Shiraz Vinegar packed full of Cranberry, Currants, Sultana, Cardamom, Star Anise, Fennel Seed, Vanilla Pods, Coriander Seed, Bay Leaves, Cinnamon & Peppercorn to accentuate the natural Nova Whisky flavour profile. Fresh cherries, banana, limes & more whisky were added to the mix to shine a spotlight on the fruity and tropical characters found in Starward’s red wine barrel aged whiskies. Smash it on your favourite meals & cocktails!!

Decadently fruity, full of flavour.
Gold medal winner at San Francisco World Spirits Awards 2020 // 92 points from Wine Enthusiast 2019.
A fruity, double distilled single malt made with Australian barley and craft brewers’ yeast for extra flavour.
Lightly charred or steamed barrels sourced from Australian wineries making great shiraz, cabernets and pinot noirs. Often filled fresh when the barrel is still wet with wine. Matured in Melbourne’s wildly varied climate for three years.
Exceptional length thanks to the red wine barrels. Bright aromatic notes of red berries, orchard fruits, vanilla, caramel and soft oak spice.
Smooth and complex when sipped neat. Shines in classic cocktails. Works exceptionally well with food.
