Solera, not only our name but also a traditional method the Spanish used to age their Sherry and keep it consistent. A fractional amount of each young cask is blended with a more mature spirit. It’s the inspiration for making our Solera and it means there’s still a touch of our first ever cask in every bottle made today.

We source every Solera ingredient from just a day’s drive away. A quintessential grain like Australian malted barley was a no-brainer to start with. Then, for a bold, craft flavor we ferment our barley with brewers’ yeast.

Next, the barrel. We wanted barrels with one hell of a history. Our Apera barrels, an Aussie fortified wine similar to Sherry, have typically held spirit over decades. That’s some seriously flavorful oak.

At first, maturation was a bit of trial and error. We were used to Scottish whiskies with age statements over a decade long. But we soon found out that wasn’t Melbourne weather’s style. The wildly varied temperature means whisky works harder in the barrel, absorbing flavor from the wood in a much shorter time.

With this elemental maturation, Solera is a neat reflection of Melbourne; wild weather and all.
