Ironbark Corn Rye Moonshine
Ironbark // New South Wales, Australia
Australia's "fastest growing distillery in the Hawkesbury region", Ironbark distillery is not your average upstart distillery; Director/Master Alchemist Reg Papps has a past career in industrial distillation spanning some 26 years, and created his Corn Rye Moonshine using a traditional recipe after establishing the Ironbark Distillery in 2013. Previously described as "a man you could only imagine would make moonshine", Reg has a passion for keeping things such as moonshine distillation out of the history books and into our world. Note: Available only in Australia
WhiteDistilled from a cereal mash bill comprised of any grain(s). Generally unaged except in the US, where it must age at least briefly in oak for an unspecified amount of time. Sometimes sold as "moonshine" although that is a misnomer.
"A cooked vegetable and malt sweetness is notable on the nose, the corn evident straight away. Below that is a sulfur tinge that is stained with spice and malt biscuits kept in a plastic container--in an appealing way. The first drop on the tongue is amazingly sweet, with the cooked corn moving over a bitter tang of minerals and a slightly metallic and feinty hint. Toasted rye makes a prevalent appearance, bringing a new area of flavors to the glass. The finish is short with coal gas and minerals coming through with cordite sweetness running over toasted rye and boiled corn."
