New-Make Spirit


5 reviews

Pure new-make spirit sourced directly from renowned Australian distilleries, perfect for maturing in oak.

- Choose from three distinct types of spirit
- Bottled in old spirit bottles to reduce glass waste
- Ideal for pairing with our oak cask to experiment with spirit maturation


Choose between:

700mL Single Malt Cask Strength (59 to 63% ABV varies by batch)
700mL Peated Single Malt Cask Strength (60 to 68% ABV varies by batch)
700mL Corn Spirit (43% ABV)

We teamed up with two Australian distilleries to distill a few new-make spirits (un-aged whiskies). Each of these handmade spirits form great starting blocks for developing into fine whiskies, and if you're creative, are also great to drink neat or in a cocktail.

Our Single Malt Cask Strength clocks in at roughly 60% ABV (exact ABV varies slightly by batch) is made by Belgrove Distillery in Tasmania. It's made from malted barley wash and double distilled in a pot still directly heated by an oil furnace.

Our Peated Single Malt Cask Strength is also a Belgrove Distillery creation and clocks in anywhere between 60 to 68% ABV depending on the batch. This spirit is made from grains smoked with peat from a local Tasmanian peat bog. Very unique and our personal favourite, but it's in really short supply.

Our Corn Spirit is made by Whipper Snapper Distillery in Western Australia. It comprises locally grown corn, malted barley and wheat from the WA wheat belt. A fantastic base for creating Bourbon style whiskies.

These new-make spirits are popular pairings with our American Oak Cask.

As a neat and somewhat quirky addition, why not include a custom gift note on a Possum Greeting Card for an extra $5?

I purchased the new make for a few home experiments, it was perfect. Tasted great on its own and I can’t wait to see how it finishes!

Love them. Great Products and Quick Delivery.

Just love White Possum. They have some great products and seem to always have fast delivery. I’ve recommended them to others who have thanked me for the recommendation. So, you can’t get better than that. The recycled packaging makes life interesting as you don’t know how things will come bundled up.

These are both Christmas gifts so until after then I cannot give you an opinion.

I’m very sure though that it will be enjoyed.
