About Starward Solera Single Malt Australian Whisky
Starward Whisky is an Australian brand of craft whisky that was founded in 2007 by David Vitale, a Melburnian who grew up in a big Italian family. Due to his upbringing, Vitale always knew how to appreciate good food and his mission is to make whisky for “a curious, food-obsessed generation”. With a focus on the flavors, Starward is handcrafted in the bedrock of southeastern Australia's wine scene where Vitale helped kickstart the Australian single malt movement under the tutelage of whisky godfather Bill Lark himself.
Distilled at their facility in Melbourne, all ingredients for Starward Whisky are sourced from a day’s drive away and the varied Melbourne weather is a key component in the production process, leaving its mark on the distinctively fruity and delicious whisky.
Starward Solera Single Malt Whisky is a double distilled single malt whisky that's matured for at least 3 years in Apera casks from the McWilliams Winery that have been shaved and re-charred. Apera is an Australian fortified wine, similar to sherry. The casks are blended Solera style, which means a “drop of the original cask” makes its way to every bottle. The result is a rich and well-balanced whisky with flavors of jammy fruits, creme brûlée and some spice.
Starward Solera Single Malt Whisky was the Double Gold Medal Winner at San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2021.
