OurGolden Oats Moonshineis inspired by the classic Aussie & Kiwi favourite, ‘The ANZAC Bikkie’. The idea of turning this flavour into a one-off limited release originated from one of our Club-54 members and all-around legend,Erick Bonilla, who pushed the project to us at every opportunity. Damn, he was right and what a release it’s turned out to be!
Our production QueenMica Mansfieldspent weeks learning specialty fermentation techniques to craft the perfect base for the concoction & worked closely with Erick on flavour profiles. She decided on a molasses-based fermentation, similar to Rum. Then during distillation, she infused the spirit with Toasted Coconut, Rolled Oats and Golden Syrup. Once the spirit was ready for dilution, we needed to bless it with buttery goodness and the sweet finish of a true ANZAC biscuit. Mica did this using two techniques:
1.Back sweeteningby making a little syrup addition from brown sugar, golden syrup, vanilla and coconut; and by
2.Fat-washingthe spirit with ghee. Fat-washing is an old perfumer’s technique of infusing something oily into retail smells and flavours; however, in spirits, it also builds and holds body and texture, creating a whole new drinking experience. Once the fat has infused, it can be frozen and removed from the liquid.
We hope you enjoy this childhood-inspired moonshine as much as we loved making it.
