Starwards Gingerbeer Cask 5th Release is an experimental cask with huge attributes. 1400 bottles are released and all at 48%, these sold out in Melbourne in a matter of hours so to get our hands on one is very special. This is a collaboration with Boatrocker Brewery and as the name suggests, these guys also like to do things a little differently. They used their ginger beer barrels to age this single malt and the beer recipe is under lock and key, it’s loaded with fresh ginger, lemongrass and citrus peel. These barrels were home for our Solera for 30 months. Plenty of time to soak up that juicy flavour.
This one’s fearless. It leads with strong, spicy ginger, though the spice is deftly balanced with sweetness. You’ll get notes of dark chocolate fig, pineapple and vanilla, with a lingering warmth to finish off.
While this may be a rare gem to add to your collection, we wouldn’t blame you if you cracked and sipped it straight away. Try your hand at a Ginger Beer Boilermaker, or splash a little of this secret ingredient into your next dessert.
