Waite 100 Whisky

The Waite 100 Whisky was produced to highlight the contribution from the Waite in the agriculture and beverage industries over the last 100 years.

The grain used was a barley variety, Compass, which was bred at the Waite. This barley was grown by South Australia farmers and malted by Coopers Maltings at no charge.  The Whisky was fermented and distilled at the Hickinbotham Roseworthy Wine Science Laboratory at the Waite.  It was aged in French and American oak wine barrels and finished in a donated bourbon barrel (Independent Stave Company).

The Whisky displays finesse with a smooth texture. It has a sweet and nutty aroma, reminiscent of walnuts or almonds. There are caramel flavours that provide a subtle sweetness with undertones of spice. Notes of nutmeg contribute to the complexity with lingering vanilla on the finish.


All proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Peter Waite Centenary Scholarship Fund.
