INTRODUCING SHELTER POINT
SINGLE MALT ARTISANAL WHISKY

Sunsets and sea air:
unofficial ingredients
in every bottle.

 

Paradise isn’t necessarily a geographical requirement for making great whisky, but we managed to find it at Shelter Point. It’s here that we hand craft our 100% Single Malt Whisky, distilled batch-by-batch in traditional copper pot stills from two-row barley, and aged in American oak barrels in our oceanfront warehouse. When it comes to artisanal whisky, every element matters—and in our unique, temperate rainforest climate, even the sunsets and sea air become integral.

Tasting Notes

Experts tell us that the inaugural batch of Shelter Point Single Malt Whisky has a very nice spice with good barrel sweetness, fruit and floral notes and some chocolate on the nose. It’s nicely finessed with a good balance of complexity and delicateness. Translation? It goes down very, very smoothly.

INTRODUCING SHELTER POINT
CASK STRENGTH WHISKY


Limited edition,
limitless layers.

 

It’s a marriage made in whisky heaven. To create this limited edition of only 1,200 bottles, we took five casks of single malt barley aged in American oak and combined them with one cask of single grain rye aged in the same wood. We then finished the mix in a French oak cask, creating an incredibly rich, fruity whisky with layer after layer of flavour. Decadent and smooth, this blend will surprise you with its spicy heat and sweet finish.

Tasting Notes

Shelter Point Cask Strength Whisky is doughy on the nose with a hint of orange cheddar, and creamy like clotted cream with a dab of strawberry jam. The gently toasted oak flavour is enhanced with dill and light sugars. The palate is fruity with a bit of heat, although surprisingly smooth for a whisky of this strength and age. On the back end, the spices take over: candied fennel, licorice, burnt demerara sugar and oily earthy tones. The finish is light, fresh and sweet, drying as it fades.
