Feeling very pleased with my efforts

Recommended Posts

I have been posting on this forum for many years, initially asking for help, in fact still asking for help occasionally, and I hope I have helped others with their questions as well.

I have attended and spoken at 2 ADI conferences and at Tails in NOLA. I am a big fan of Bill Owens and the people in the US craft distilling industry.

Now for my announcements

Whisky Magazine "Icons of Whisky" has awarded me Australian Craft Producer 2019 which means I am now in the World Finals.

Also Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2019 has scored my Peated Rye Whisky 96.5/100 Southern Hemisphere Whisky of the Year.

Very proud and humbled, and thanks for your help from forum members.

Congrats Pete! We've got a peated rye coming out soon,  until your post I had not known of any other peated ryes.  Glad to hear it was well received!

Like you, I thought I was the only one doing a peated rye until I found out there is another in Denmark. Very hard to invent something totally new.

Thanks all for your congrats.

No plans in the near future for another US visit. About time some of you came to visit me. Bill Owens called in a couple of days ago but unfortunately I am in Japan visiting distilleries and marketing. Also a couple who work for Corsair visited about a month ago. I had a bottle of their Oatrage to show them I am a supporter. I also have a bottle of Jedd's gin to show off.

Congratulations Pete! I assume this leaves you with no time for sand castles! :)

Thanks Iliasm, time is getting scarce but still doing the occasional sand and ice sculptures. I have a whisky event coming up where I will turn up early and do a whisky related ice sculpture for show then present my whiskies.
