History of the starward distillery

The Starward Distillery's history dates back to 2007, when founder David Vitale had the idea of ​​creating a unique Australian whiskey distillery. Vitale was disillusioned with conventional Scotch whiskeys and looked for a way to produce a whiskey that reflected Australian tastes and climate.

In 2013, Starward Distillery opened its doors in the industrial Port Melbourne district. The distillery is known for its use of Australian grains and its innovative approach to producing whiskeys aged in specially selected wine barricas from Australian wineries. These casks give the whiskey unique flavors and aromas that differ from traditional Scottish whiskeys.
