Little French Pete Limited Extended Aged Release (13 years)

110 Bottles Available Only – Each individually numbered with handwritten production notes. Also included – special limited edition tasting notes card and presentation box

Little French Pete celebrates the best elements of American and French oak whisky maturation with a generous dose of Australian goldfield spirit. Inspired by the success of Bakery Hill Double Wood, they decided to try a special peated edition – but this time reversing the process.

Bakery Hill initially matured the spirit in virgin French Oak barrels for two years, before transferring to heavily charred American Oak barrels for the next decade.

The result is an amazingly complex yet delicately matured peated whisky. Extremely limited and undoubtedly ‘magnifique’.

ABV 48%
