Established in 1859 Morris of Rutherglen is Australia’s most awarded winery and one of the world’s finest producers of fortified wines. The family malts and brews locally-sourced barley for this whisky using Snowy Mountains water and at the heart of the distillery is the original copper pot still named “Aurora,” built in the 1930s. The whiskies commence their ageing in a combination of American and French oak ex shiraz (Barossa) and cabernet (Coonawarra) barrels from the family wineries. Morris Whisky has unparalleled access to Australia’s finest fortified wine casks for finishing the ageing
process for these outstanding Australian whiskies.
