Hoochery Spikes Reserve 15 Year Rum

, , , ,

Hoochery Spikes Reserve 15 Year Rum (Batch 001) is a very special release to celebrate the life of the legend himself, Raymond ‘Spike’ Dessert III.

The Spike’s Reserve series is some of the best rum Ord River rum the Hoochery has to offer. It was selected and blended from the oldest and best barrels of Hoochery founder, owner and distiller Spike Dessert’s cellar. A superb example of an Australian craft Pure Single Rum – 100% pot distilled using molasses from local sugar cane, and barrel aged in charred oak barrels for 15 years minimum.

Each bottle of Spike’s Reserve was to be signed by Spike himself. Tragically he passed away 2 days before the labels arrived from the printing press. In memory and in respect to Spike, each bottle of Spike’s Reserve – Batch 001 will remain unsigned.

Hoochery Spikes Reserve 15 Year Rum is presented in a beautiful presentation box detailing why the bottles are unsigned and Spike’s story about coming from California to Kununurra, raising a family and building a great farming and hooch-making legacy.

Crafted by Hoochery Distillery, Ord River Valley (Kununurra), WA.

Hoochery Spikes Reserve 15 Year Rum is crafted by Hoochery Distillery. Founder, owner, distiller and local legend, the late 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 Spikes Reserve 15 Year Rum and the Ord River Rum range 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.
