Thomson Whisky, founded by Mat and Rachael Thomson, is on its way to becoming one of New Zealand’s greats – now available at The Loop Duty Free at Auckland airport…
The Thomson Whisky story began when the pair managed to rescue precious casks from the long-closed Willowbank distillery. Although the whisky was abandoned, it was still ageing in good conditions, and gave way to a new journey for the couple.
Thomson Whisky now has their own operating distillery located at Hallertau Brewery, north west of Auckland. The whisky has been likened to the Highland style, with plenty of vanilla and light florals. Thomson Whisky is proud to be one of the few commercial whisky distilleries in New Zealand and proud to be 100% New Zealand owned and operated.
Thomson Whisky brings you an update from the barrel. Made from 100% New Zealand grown malted barley, smoked using Manuka wood, and distilled through a hand beaten copper pot still, it’s the Manuka Smoke release in its youth. This ‘work in progress’ bottling offers natural smoke, cinnamon, clove, and Manuka oils.
Thomson Manuka Smoke ‘Progress Report’ Single Malt Whisky is currently available at The Loop Duty Free at Auckland Airport, New Zealand – priced at NZ$85.00.
