Australian Whisky Ballots

Australian Whisky Ballots: A Guide

Australian whisky is on the rise, and with it comes a growing demand for limited-edition and rare whiskies. One way to get your hands on these coveted bottles is to enter a whisky ballot.

A whisky ballot is a way for distilleries to sell their limited-edition whiskies to a select group of customers. Typically, a ballot will open for a certain period of time, and customers can enter by submitting their name and contact information. Once the ballot closes, the distillery will randomly select winners who will be able to purchase the whisky.

If you're serious about winning a bottle, it's important to enter as many ballots as possible. You can also increase your chances of winning by signing up for whisky clubs and newsletters.

Sullivans Cove American Oak 2nd Fill 'Old & Rare' WhiskyOur Old & Rare Second Fill American Oak releases have been matured for a minimum of sixteen years in a cask made from American oak, that has previously matured Sullivans Cove whisky. This style of maturation in Second Fill casks was recently celebrated with a gold medal and category win at the World Whiskies Awards. Second fill casks display our distilleries character loudly and proudly. These casks have been with us since the mid 1990s where they started their life as virgin oak, and they have only ever matured our single malt whisky – no bourbon, no sherry, nothing else. Second fill casks allow for long term maturation, without being overtaken by the influence of oak or pre-fill. The result is a whisky in perfect harmony: our signature spirit character is met by a soft oak profile, allowing the fruity esters that come from our copper Alembic still, Myrtle, to shine. American Oak Old & Rare Second Fill Single Cask TD0101 was filled on the 26th of May, 2006 and decanted on the 13th of June, 2023, for a maturation of 17 years. After such a long maturation, this 300-litre American oak cask, previously used to mature an older batch of Sullivans Cove single malt, yielded only 384 bottles at 47.5% abv. As one of the oldest Australian single malt whiskies ever released, this bottling is a true piece of whisky history and has incredible texture, complexity and length of palate. Each bottle comes in a unique, hand made, solid oak presentation box, and includes a letter of authenticity signed by our Head Distiller.
