A whisky all the way from New Zealand’s Cardrona Distillery, which was built in 2015 in the Southern Alps of New Zealand’s South Island. This is (excitingly!) the very first single malt from the distillery, dubbed Just Hatched because it’s been bottled at three years old – exactly how old it needs to be to be legally called a whisky! It spent its short maturation in a majority of ex-bourbon barrels alongside a small proportion of ex-sherry butts.

It was bottled up at cask strength, a fairly generous 64.4% ABV. Any prior judgements you have about a whisky this youthful, be gone! While this is a fabulous release in its own right, it’s also an exciting glimpse into what we can expect from the distillery in the future.

Flavour profile










White grape, waxy lemon peel and walnut sponge cake, with plump sultana, fresh apple and rice pudding


Set honey and buttery gingersnap biscuits, followed by a zing of orange citrus and oily nuts


Candied peels, lemon blossom and malty biscuits

If you're anything like us, then matching whisky and glassware brings a different kind of happiness. You're also in luck, because now when you nab a bottle of the wonderful Just Hatched whisky from Cardrona Distillery, we'll throw in (AKA, carefully place) this branded Cardrona Glencairn crystal tasting glass, too! Just the thing to enjoy the brilliant expression from.
