Craft Works Distillery I Am... & Just Derek... (2 x 500ml)

Craft Works Distillery I Am & Just Derek... (2 x 500ml)

1 x I Am... First Release

Bottle No. 255 of 485

The inaugural single malt whisky release from Capertee's Craft Works Distillery.

Following a number of independent bottling releases under the Craft Works Indie Bottler label, we've finally got into Capertee's first home-distilled whisky.

This has been vatted from two 50 litre Barossa shiraz recoopered, heavily charred casks with oloroso seasoning, and part of a 225 litre Mudgee ex-cabernet sauvingnon/port cask (no char, wet fill).

Bottled at 62.7%, this is a big whisky but it doesn't drink as hot as the ABV would suggest. A whisky of dark fruits and dark chocolate with ever so-slightly smoky oak.

1 x Just Derek...

Bottle No. 92 of 155

Just Derek is the first release by the independent bottling arm of the Craft Works Distillery, owned and operated by Craig ‘Crafty’ Field. Crafty sourced his new-make (spirit) from an undisclosed Sydney distillery and matured it at his distillery in Capertee NSW, in a deep char, coopered, 100L American Oak ex-sherry barrel that was over 40 years old.

Only 155 bottles were yielded of this expression that was named after a very close friend of Crafty’s whose name was Derek. The story of Derek is quite special and if you visit Crafty at his distillery or bump into him at a whisky event – ask him about Derek and how he came to name a whisky in his honour.
