78°: Truly considered Australian whiskey

UP UNTIL NOW AUSTRALIAN WHISKEY HAS BEEN LARGELY INFLUENCED AND LED BY THE SCOTTISH WHISKY INDUSTRY, FROM PRODUCTION PROCESSES THROUGH TO STILL DESIGN.

We wanted to create something different, something uniquely Australian. When Sacha La Forgia set out to create a whiskey, his drive was not to replicate but to innovate. Rather than study existing styles, Sacha worked on developing something different, something that reflected Australia, both in its modern form and its tens of thousands of years of history.

It was through his desire to create a product with a uniquely Australian flavour, that Sacha was driven to research and develop a whiskey that didn’t just replicate something that already existed, but carved out its own place in the market.

With sustainability at the forefront of his mind, Sacha set out to create a truly considered Australian Whiskey. Each step of the process has been thoroughly researched, with an emphasis on flavour through sustainable practices.

So, what does sustainability look like to us? In order to limit energy and water consumption, we ferment and distill on grain as not to waste water on rinsing, to our unique single-shot distillation method, every step of the process has been carefully considered and carried out to ensure that we create a delicious whiskey, with a truly considered Australian style.

We believe that to be truly sustainable you have to not only control your own processes, but have hands on input on those around you. It is important for us that we have the ability to determine the outcome of our materials throughout in order for us to have absolute transparency with our products.

With whiskey we are able to achieve this through our locally grown, single paddock barley, which is 100% rain water fed and GM free. After distilation we utilises the waste material of our distillation process as a natural pesticide, creating a truly closed loop. These are just some of the ways we like to champion sustainability.

We hand select all of our casks, ensuring only the finest oak is used to mature our spirit. Through these processes we are able to maintain complete barley to bottle control over every single drop of our 78° whiskey.
