What's the go here?
We don't ordinarily sell single bottle samples of anything. However, we had these gems leftover from a project we worked on and given the massive awards this has won since then (a full 700ml bottle will now set you back $499 from the distillery), we knew we had to make this available - at a reasonable price tag - so everyone could try it.

Tin Shed Distilling
Tin Shed Distilling is one of those places where every step of the whisky making process is hands on and hard work - milling malt, stirring mash, moving barrels, tasting casks, filling bottles, applying labels and packing into shipping cartons. Hardly any of their process is mechanised and that’s exactly the way they like it. A new 2200L copper pot still and their older 600L still perform most of the magic here, but it hasn’t always been plain sailing. Tin Shed was initially founded as a side hustle between three mates and was known as Southern Coast Distilling at the time. Their products were delicious and well received, but sadly the partnership fell apart years later. Tin Shed is the reincarnation of that operation with two of the original founders on-board.

The Flustercluck
The actual reason for this whisky's unfortunate name is quite simple. It was made from malt that had been intended to be smoked with local South Australian peat. Instead, the peat delivered was from Tasmania and the distillery unknowingly used it. After distilling, the new-make spirit was mistakenly cut back with water before being filled into an ex-Heaven Hill bourbon cask at a very low ABV. The cask was then accidentally stored for most of its time in the highest and hottest barrel racks just under the roof, not great evaporation-wise for a whisky that was already low in ABV. The mistakes continued, with delays in packaging and labelling capping off a series of unfortunate events for this poor whisky.
