Starward Malt Whisky began with a simple vision: offer the world a modern whisky unshackled from tradition and is the culmination of 9 years of research and development. Working with Australian barley and barrels we have adopted, adjusted and re-adjusted distilling and maturation techniques from around the world – continually observing the influence of time, place and the natural elements. Starward borrows from the past without being constrained by it, and combines it with the best Australia has to offer: our barley, our barrels, and our climate. This world class Starward Malt Whisky is a true reflection of the place and people who make it.

Utilising centuries of knowledge and tradition, yet not restricted by it, Starward Malt Whisky is the brainchild of David Vitale who set out to harness the very best of Australia’s barley, barrels and climate to create the ultimate new world whisky. Years of experimentation, adjustment, trial and even more adjustment has created Starward, a whisky that will challenge your perceptions of what Whisky can be.
Artisan Victorian barley is sourced to begin the bespoke process which ends up in aged Australian Apera casks that have been re-coopered, re-toasted and re-sized. All of which help create a Whisky of smoothness, sweetness and unparalleled complexity.
Tasting Notes: Aroma of ripe orchard fruits: pears, bananas and apples with vinous raisins and dried figs. Caramel, vanilla and marzipan balance the bright fruit. The palate is filled with rich, toasty caramel, crème brulee, more fruit, pepper, sandalwood, nutmeg and marzipan. A full, sweet, juicy mouthfeel, with a youthful, spicy dry finish.
