NED was born from a desire to create a locally-crafted Australian whisky that gave Australian dark spirits drinkers a genuine choice and something to call their own. We’re not interested in imitating others or comparing ourselves to anyone else. We’re forging our own path to create something uniquely Australian.
First, we select only the finest Australian grain to mash and ferment using a proprietary process that takes the best of single malt production and combines it with sour mash techniques to create a spirit that is fiercely independent and unlike anything that has come before it.
And Melbourne’s climate provides the perfect stage, its temperature variations across all seasons encouraging the whisky to move slowly in and out of the oak, drawing the mellowness from the barrel as it does.
Aged in second fill oak, our Australian whisky is finished in new heavily-charred oak until it has its signature boldness and character.
But that’s not where it ends. Before being hand bottled and labelled, NED Australian whisky is gently charcoal filtered for smoothness and then transferred to large European Oak vats for final blending and consistency.
Every individually numbered bottle is uniquely Australian in every sense. The result is a limited batch Australian whisky that shines being mixed, stirred and sometimes even shaken.
We select only the best Australian grain to distil a true Australian whisky that’s fiercely independent and unlike anything that has come before it. Our Australian whisky isn’t content sit on the back bar. It’s in the middle of the action being mixed, stirred and sometimes even shaken. Probably the best whisky Melbourne has in the market, we’re aimed at setting the highest standards of quality whisky Australia has to offer.
