Old Kempton Distillery celebrates win at 2023 Melbourne Royal Australian Distilled Spirits Awards

The Champions of the 2023 Melbourne Royal Australian Distilled Spirits Awards have been announced in Melbourne with distillery taking home a Gold and 2 Silvers for their Single Malt Whisky Cask Strength unsmoked “The Coachhouse”, Single Malt Whisky unsmoked “The Old Stables” and Single Malt Whisky unsmoked “10th Anniversary Release” .

Old Kempton prides itself on its hands-on traditional distilling approach and this is the first year these products have been entered in the Australian Distilled Spirits Awards – to come home with an award for each entry is incredibly humbling.

“We are thrilled to see that our Artisan approach and dedication to our chosen casks has really paid off. It is a privilege to have our spirits recognised for being high standard whiskies that are the end result of our passion to the industry.” Rob Tyson – Head Distiller.

This year’s entries were assessed by 53 of Australia’s leading industry experts over three days in July, with points awarded for appearance, nose, palate, balance and finish. The awards offer entrants the opportunity to benchmark against set criteria; receive invaluable independent feedback from industry experts; and be rewarded for excellence in this growing sector.
