Herrick Creek Whisky
We're focusing on three main styles of whisky:
1. A Bourbon-style spirit using classic Bourbon mash bills and ageing techniques, which includes at least 51% corn.
2. New Zealand Single Malt Whisky, using only malted barley from here in Canterbury! This whisky is a mix of three malted barley variations that is copper pot distilled.
3. Heritage Corn Whisky, which uses different corn varieties and will be very limited, potentially one-off batches. Keep an eye on social channels for more!
Each year we're working to cultivate, grow, and harvest heritage corn varieties right here in Canterbury.
