The 7th release from Corowa Distilling Co, Quick’s Courage expression is the first “Federation Reserve” release from Corowa Distilling Co. It takes its name from John Quick, an English-born Australian lawyer, politician and author who was the federal member of Parliament for Bendigo from 1901 to 1913 and a leading delegate to the Constitutional Conventions in the 1890s.
It is arguably the most ‘mature’ of the Corowa so far with total of 600 bottles released. It was first matured in American Oak bourbon barrels before being transferred in ex-Pedro Ximenez Sherry Barrels for the sherry influence with sweeter toffee and vanilla notes.
