Hoochery Ord River Premium Rum

, , ,

Hoochery Ord River Premium Rum is produced from Ord Valley sugar cane, aged in individually selected small oak barrels and hand bottled in Western Australia.

The first spirit Hoochery’s founder and master distiller, Spike, tried his hand at making, the Hoochery Ord River Premium Rum has now become their flagship rum. And after 25 years, nothing’s changed. Pot-distilled, oak-matured, hand-blended and married, and reduced with monsoonal wet season rainwater, it’s still made and bottled by hand, and distilled in what Hoochery like to think of as the ugliest still in the world.

Hoochery Ord River Premium Rum is meticulously crafted by Hoochery Distillery.

From the rich, fertile soils in the heart of the ord river valley comes the first Western Australian rum, ever. Legally, anyway.

Owner, developer and farmer Spike Dessert fell in love with the Kimberley when he saw it in 1972. In 1995 with the onset of Sugar Cane being grown in the Ord River Valley, he saw a way to diversify his dream and created the Hoochery – the oldest continuously operating distillery in Western Australia. Now if you are wondering about the name Hoochery, the name was trademarked by Spike from the word Hooch which goes back to the Hutanuwu (later modified to Hoochinoo) Indian tribe of Alaska who made alcoholic liquor – this is until it became the more popular name for the illegal activity of bootlegging!

Built on his farm just outside of Kununurra in the heart of the beautiful Ord River Valley is a small pot distillery, which has the capacity to produce over 50,000 bottles of Rum a year. Hoochery Ord River Premium 3 Year Rum is made from local sugar cane, wet season rainwater and yeast that is all vat fermented, pot distilled, charcoal filtered, aged in oak barrels and hand bottled. The distillery is 100% Australian owned and operated.

“Gin’s a city drink. Whiskey’s made in a cold area. Rum’s made in the warm tropics. Bingo.” – Spike | farmer, founder & distiller.
