Creamy and vanilla-forward, Tiger Snake Whiskey is the ‘bourbon’ of Australia.

Tiger Snake was Australia’s first version of a sour mash whiskey, taking inspiration from the great Tennessee Whiskeys and Kentucky Bourbons to bring you a damn fine drink.

In the same way Champagne recognises wine from the renowned region in France, Bourbon is a geographic indicator. In Australia we refer to this style as a ‘Sour Mash’ Whiskey, thanks to the unique grain mashing process used to craft this flavoursome mixed grain whiskey.

Using 100% Western Australian ingredients, this impressive sour mash is crafted using a classic grain bill of corn, rye, malted barley, and occasionally the old hybrid grain “triticale”. All grains are sourced from within Western Australia.

As each barrel will exhibit its own unique characteristics, creating slight variation from barrel to barrel, we utilise a solera system whereby several casks are emptied to a large holding tank and left to marry. Half of the blended batch is then sent for filtering and bottling, and the remaining half is retained and the blending tank is topped up with new barrels. Adopting this approach ensures there is a consistency of our products from batch to batch.

The average age of this product is 5 to 8 years.

The great bourbons of Kentucky and Tennessee were the whiskeys that first captured Cameron’s attention as he developed a taste for these dark spirits in his youth. To this day, that bourbon spirit still runs in his blood and is brought to you in the form of Tiger Snake Sour Mash Whiskey, our uniquely Australian take on the American bourbon. Tiger Snake was Australia’s first mixed grain whiskey. Of course, we can’t call it bourbon as it is not made in the USA.

Such is the international following of the whiskey produced at this distillery, Tiger Snake is the subject of a song written in Las Vegas USA, called “Whiskey by the Snake”.

It is produced under the Great Southern Distilling Company banner out of our Porongurup distillery, situated in the breathtaking Porongurup mountain range roughly 30 minutes north-east of Albany.

Our Tiger Snake distillery is not open to the public and is solely where the hard yards are put in.

Our Tiger Snake Whiskey is Australia’s first version of a sour mash whiskey, taking inspiration from the great Tennessee Whiskeys and Kentucky Bourbons. Like Champagne recognises wine from the great region in France, Bourbon is also a geographic indicator, so in Australia we refer to this style as a ‘Sour Mash’ Whiskey, indicative of the grain mashing process unique to Bourbon.

Using a classic grain bill of corn, rye and malted barley, and occasionally including the old hybrid grain “triticale”, all of which are sourced entirely from Western Australia, our full flavoured sour mash is bursting with tones of vanilla, caramel and hazelnuts. This mixed grain Whiskey is richly textured with elegant spices and fruit with a smooth creamy finish.

Each batch is hand bottled and numbered in keeping with our small batch tradition.

Tiger Snake opens with a floral bouquet before hitting the taste buds with notes of vanilla-soaked hazelnut, caramel and a hint of zesty citrus rind.

It is well textured with a smooth finish.
