NEW ZEALAND WHISKY (The)
New Zealand Whisky is a brand that was created by Greg Ramsay, an Australian business man and whisky enthusiast, to bring together all the most recent bottlings of single malt whisky from the closed Willowbank distillery. Founded in 1974 in the town of Dunedin, this distillery initially produced blends such as Wilsons and 45 South. Purchased by Seagrams, it then began making its first single malt, Milford. The brand’s whiskies are now available in several ranges: ‘Doublewood’, consisting of blends aged in two different barrels; ‘South Island’ for old whiskies and ‘Cask Strength’, for vintage-dated cask strength bottlings.
