Whisky for a curious, food-obsessed generation.
Starward is made in Melbourne. Not the outback. Or a sunshine-soaked beach. Melbourne is the foodie capital of Australia, full of casual brilliance. Here, Starward ditch the airs and graces and focus on flavour instead.
That's why they use red wine barrels to mature their whisky. They source all their whisky ingredients from just a day's drive away. Then, in the wildly varied Melbourne weather, the whisky draws out its signature fruity, delicious flavour in just three short years. Starward call this elemental maturation and it's why they couldn't make their whisky anywhere else.
Starward's Melburnian founder, David Vitale, grew up in a big Italian family. He's food obsessed without ever getting too serious or formal about it. And he knows his whisky feels right at home at those moments spent around the dinner table.
Raise a few eyebrows and bring a bottle to a BBQ. Pour it with tonic and watch jaws go to the floor. It's an eye-opening business, this new world of whisky drinking.
