Described as a classic American cocktail reimagined with an Australian twist, the series is inspired by the signature Starward Whisky red wine barrel characteristics.
The tipple is a distillery batched cocktail, made with Starward’s single grain whisky and matured in Australian red wine barrels from Adelaide Hills Distillery.
Sam Slaney, Starward’s Head Distiller, said, “It’s such an exciting time to be in the Australian craft spirits category – there is so much opportunity for creativity and to challenge tradition.”
“Starward whisky is uniquely matured in Australian red wine barrels and Adelaide Hills Distillery sources the very best of Australian native produce and South Australian red wine for its red vermouth.”
“The result of this collaboration is the Red Manhattan, a one-of-a-kind bottled cocktail that is bright, balanced and full of flavour.”
Fraser Lockwood, Marketing Director at SouthTrade International also said, “Both distilleries produce incredible liquids and the 500ml format provides the opportunity for affordable, expertly crafted cocktails to be served with ease at any ‘at home’ occasion. David, Sacha and Sam have cracked another corker liquid here”
Starward limited-edition Red Manhattan has an RRP of $49.00 for 500ml and it is currently available from the Starward distillery and www.starward.com.au.
