Baldwin’s Bourbon

Baldwin Distilling is one of Australia’s newest Distilleries specialising in American Style Whiskey. Anthony Baldwin is the Head Distiller and uses Australian grown corn, barley and rye to make the various blends in the Baldwin stable. Baldwin Distillery is new to the Handmade Market on 10 & 11 December, and we asked Anthony our questions.

  1. What is your business all about?
    Baldwin Distilling Company is Australia’s only dedicated Bourbon Distillery (we have to call it Whiskey here in Australia). The company was founded to challenge America’s unfair share of Australia’s large Bourbon market and create a legacy for our family and Canberra. Our uncompromising quality and drive to bring you the best products in Australia or for that matter, anywhere, is the heart of the company’s energising culture.
  1. What’s new for Handmade?
    Apple Pie Moonshine is new for us. Baldwin Distilling has always sold Traditional Corn Moonshine, in the tradition of the Appalachian Moonshiners but made professionally. We have just released two variants of our product – Apple Pie Moonshine and Honey Moonshine. Our Apple Pie is made with freshly squeezed Batlow apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and our Moonshine. This drink really is like Nanna’s Apple Pie, but with Alcohol! Our other style is Honey Moonshine. This product is a blend of local Buckwheat honey blended with our Moonshine. The resulting product is a beautiful honey drink with a little bite! Both products are 20% ALC/VOL and best enjoyed over ice.
  1. What will Santa be bringing you this year?
    Hopefully some big orders and a “no issue 2017” voucher!

We are particularly looking forward to seeing you at the Market next week, Anthony, and to tasting your wares!
