Starward Left Field Whisky

Starward Left Field Whisky

STARWARD was born from a simple idea, borrowing knowledge from the past and marrying it with the best of what Australia has to offer this iconic spirit category: its barley, its barrels, and its climate. It is the temperamental climate that allows STARWARD distillers to take advantage of Melbourne’s ‘four seasons in one day’ climate to age their single malt in three years – in ex-sherry casks known as Apera casks – a process that founder David Vitale calls ‘elemental maturing’.

And they’re doing something right, STARWARD Solera recently won gold at the 2016 World Whisky Awards with the other product in the STARWARD range, the Wine Cask Project being named as Best Craft Distilled Whisky in the World at the revered San Francisco International Spirits Competition.

Starward whiskies are a journey into a distinctively Australian spirit and the possibilities for New World whisky. Each whisky has the Starward stamp from our wine barrel maturation, yet each whisky differs and offers something new. From single malt to double grain, American or French oak influences or approachability and complexity. There’s a whisky for every drinker.

Left-Field is an approachable, versatile single malt whisky with the hallmarks of our distinctive Australian red wine barrel maturation. Hailing from Melbourne, Australia’s food and culture capital, Left-Field is very comfortable on the dinner table, served mixed, shaken or built.

Smooth and flavoursome in style, Left-Field is unique to Starward as we’ve only used 100% French oak to give a rich and spicy mouthfeel and to enhance the complex oak characters, while maintaining the delicate wine flavours that have soaked into the barrels.

Bringing together Australian barley and Australian red wine barrels from our famed wine regions, of the Barossa Valley and Yarra Valley, Starward Left-Field truly celebrates the barrels which had previously held some of Australia’s biggest and boldest red wines.

Eminently approachable and delicious, Left-Field has been deliberately crafted to be ideal for mixing with anything or mixed with nothing. Drink it your way!
