New whisky simply liquid gold for Adelaide’s Southern Coast Distillers | News.com.au

TUCKED away in a suburban Adelaide warehouse is a whisky distillery that is winning international accolades.

Whisky doyen Jim Murray has listed one of its drops in the 2012 edition of The Whisky Bible as “one of the most astonishing whiskies it has been my honour to taste. Frankly I am on my knees”.

This is high praise for Southern Coast Distillers in Welland. The distiller began selling its whisky only this year, online and at the Rob Roy Hotel and East End Cellars in the city.

“Our first customer was an Adelaide plastic surgeon who bought a bottle at a charity auction and paid $500 for it in February this year,” co-owner Ian Schmidt said.

The surgeon has been back to buy more, and the single malt batch 002, lauded as liquid gold by Mr Murray, has sold out at $110 a pop.

The company established a website this year and is receiving increasing numbers of purchases online. Most hits are from Australia, followed by the US and Ireland. It also has won medals through the Malt Whisky Society of Australia.
