Fleurieu Distillery Cartoon Lurve Single Malt Whisky

Sometimes love is found in the strangest of places. The chance meeting of a one-eyed muscle bound sailor with waif of a girl the shape of a toothpick sparked a truly unique relationship. Popeye and Olive were two peated whisky barrels filled on the same day – and named after these two cartoon characters. There is never any guarantee the whisky from barrels named after couples will end up in the same bottle. Sometimes though, there is that certain magic and the whisky from Popeye and Olive certainly had this for us. And as Celine Dion so aptly puts it, if you are truly in love you’re not in love, you’re in “lurve”.

Tasting Notes: 52% alc/vol, available in 700ml bottles only and limited to 300 hand-numbered bottles. Deep auburn in colour, this exquisitely peated whisky remains true to the Fleurieu style. Hints of gentle smoke and sweet iodine peat on the nose give way to briny coastal infused malt and umami on the palate. The balance between sweet smoky toffee and wisps of toasted walnuts mingle well with overtones of dried stone fruit. A great dram to deliberate over, after exploring rock pools at Middleton point at low tide on a hazy Winter afternoon. Gold Medal – Craft Spirit – American Distilling Institute Awards 2020

The Fleurieu Peninsula proudly weathers the wild southern ocean. In the lee of the mount lofty ranges, the fleurieu coast extends from the sandy surf beaches of coorong to the windswept rugged clifftops of the cape. Situated on the waters edge in the river port of goolwa is our distillery. It is here the whisky develops expressive maple and vanilla oak overtones mixed with spicy sea-air aromas. These elegantly combine to create a smooth bodied character that comes only from maturation on the southern coast.
