The Source Bourbon

Barrel Aged Gin

Classic Cardrona Source accentuated with warm winter spice notes from 8 months resting in a Heaven Hill ex-bourbon barrel.

Light straw in colour, think champagne with a secret, the initial contact on the nose is Cardrona's signature citrus forward Source, matured with sweet biscuit and light winter spices.

The flavour profile draws one in with a weighted sweetness, reminiscent of wildflower honey, before a crescendo of lemon drops and bourbon attributed clove, vanilla and nutmeg notes. Juniper finishes the symphony lingering delightfully on the palate, accompanied by black pepper.

Key Ingredients

In Cardrona Spirits

Water

Our water is drawn from Alvin’s well, named after Desiree’s father who built the well. Alvin’s well is fed by the flanks of Mount Cardrona itself. The water is sweet and plentiful – the first ingredient in making great spirits.  

Barley

The King of Grains - Cardrona’s barley is grown on the rich Canterbury plains, and then malted to Cardrona’s exacting standards. The malted barley is milled on site at Cardrona and then combined with Cardrona water in a Forsyth lauter mash tun.

Yeast

The wort is slowly drawn off where the final ingredient, distiller’s yeast is added, and the magic of fermentation begins. From these early stages the distillery and the landscape stamp its character permanently into the spirit. Our fermentation is long, more than 70 hours, allowing the spirit's character to develop fully formed, before being captured in Cardrona's curiously small copper pot stills.
