Limeburners Single Malt Whisky from Albany is a recent addition at Swanny Cellars. Limeburners is a boutique distillery that’s making some award winning whiskies from this quiet ocean side town.
The name, “Limeburners” comes from the nearby limeburning kilns, which were once operated by convicts. Lime Burning started in the mid 1800s and stopped just after WWII, the lime was used for plastering and brick laying.
The people behind Limeburners actually spent years researching the area and the materials to find the best place to set up their distillery where they could have plenty of peat, barley, and clean water. The whisky needs a cool climate for maturing and the weather down here is perfect.
Tony has tried this whisky and can’t recommend it enough…It was matured in second fill bourbon barrels and then finished in a very old small sherry cask whisky so the flavours are very enticing indeed! It’s premium quality local whisky made by a striving young company,
