Starward Australian Whisky officially announces the distribution of its double grain whisky in the U.S. Capturing the best of Australia, Starward Two-Fold Double Grain Whisky brings together two quintessential Australian grains in the bottle: wheat (60%) and malt (40%) from the Double Gold winning Nova Single Malt, which are distilled and fully matured separately in the distillery’s signature red wine barrels from some of Australia’s leading wineries. The result is a deliciously approachable and full-flavored new world whisky.
Starward Two-Fold was designed to be the ideal tasting whisky: malted barley gives it depth; wheat provides an aromatic and dry note; and in order to give it the full, delicious fruit and spice flavors for which Starward is known, the spirit is matured in its signature red wine barrels.
“When I envisioned Two-Fold, I was inspired by Melbourne’s world class foodie scene,” said David Vitale, founder of Starward Whisky. “We’re obsessed with excellence in all types of food and drink without getting too serious or formal about it. I wanted to create a whisky for us to enjoy and celebrate alongside our world-class craft beers, wines and amazing food. We found that wheat and malted barley create the perfect backdrop for our red wine barrels to shine both as a neat and easy drinking whisky but also mixed, in a cocktail or at the barbie—we are Australian after all!”
Two-Fold is proudly versatile. Suggested servings include a highball with soda for the aromatic spicy character to come through; a Boulevardier will bring out the baking spices; and a Two-Fold and Tonic will make one start to wonder why they need gin in life.
Two-Fold originally launched in Australia in 2018 and since then has been awarded 85 points by The Ultimate Spirits Challenge for its “seductive aromas” and a World Whisky Award as Australia’s Best Blended Whisky.
