Ascension describes the journey our whisky has taken throughout its carefully guided maturation as it moves from the smallest to the largest casks at Lawrenny Estate.
We initially created our unique spirit using local Tasmanian barley, pristine river water and our signature blend of yeasts before laying it down in small bourbon and port casks. Once close to maturity the small casks of each type were married together and filled into fresh 100L casks for several months to impart an extra dimension of influence. The final touch is achieved by the now combined bourbon and port whisky resting in rich, antique 600L Pedro Ximenez sherry casks.
The result is a single malt that not only showcases the very best of each cask type and size but introduces you to Lawrenny Estate's vision for our ongoing journey.
