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

An enticing nose of vanilla, coconut, caramel and tropical fruits. The palate provides a delectable melody of juicy fruits and candied sweets, leading to a tantalising finish of spice, malt chocolate and a hint of salt.

SHELTER POINT
THE FORBIDDEN


The whisky no one knew they needed

 

Shelter Point’s first Single Malt Wheat Whisky release has finally arrived. This whisky is the third different grain whisky that we have bottled. Named after our local landmark “Forbidden Plateau”, this small mountain and our whisky are similar as both shrouded in mystery. By using wheat as the base this whisky is truly unique and unlike anything we have ever produced. This whisky was double distilled and aged exclusively in American oak ex-bourbon barrels for 5 and a half years. The Forbidden was a small batch (only 667 Bottles) so get yours while you can.

Tasting Notes
The Forbidden whisky is sweet, medicinal and subtle on the nose. The palate is sweet caramel, vanilla and slightly honeyed. The satisfying finish is a delicious combination of a slight spiciness and almonds nougat.
