Second-Fill casks are a truly special part of our distillery.

 

A handpicked selection of our best barrels are refilled, and what follows is a slow and gentle collaboration of spirit and oak.

Sullivans Cove’s spirit in its purest form.

 

This results in a softer, less oak-forward whisky with a complexity that is unique to Second-Fill casks.

 

Our best kept secret until now, Second-Fill casks reveal Sullivans Cove’s spirit in its purest form.

Nothing highlights that spirit better

 

Our graceful still, Myrtle, creates such a wonderful and unique spirit.

 

And nothing highlights that spirit better than Second-Fill barrels.

“Second-Fill whisky presents our spirit character in its purest form. The heart and soul of the distillery on display, with nowhere to hide.”

 

Heather Tillott – Sullivans Cove Distillery Manager

Sullivans Cove Second-Fill – “A whisky where you can properly taste the barley, the barley sugars, the copper, the time and then the cask.”

 

Matt Bailey – Branch Director |
Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Sullivans Cove Second-Fill – “The benefit [to refill casks] is really showcasing and highlighting the spirit character… It’s almost a sense of pride around the quality of their spirit that they are producing.”

 

Lachlan Watt – Bar Manager |
Whisky & Alement

Sullivans Cove Second-Fill – “You can enjoy those typical flavours you get from the oak but in a more restrained and delicate style which allows for the spirit to shine that bit more.”
