Thomson Manuka Smoke Whisky

  • Single Malt
  • New Zealand, 700ml

This ‘work in progress’ bottling offers natural smoke, cinnamon, clove, and Manuka oils. Made from 100% New Zealand grown malted barley, smoked using Manuka wood, and distilled through a hand-beaten copper pot still, it’s Thomson's Manuka Smoke release in its youth. 

  • Distillery: Thomson Whisky
  • Type: Manuka Smoke Single Malt Whisky
  • Region: Riverhead, Auckland, New Zealand
  • Alcohol: 46%
  • Volume: 700ml
  • Goes with: Neat or over ice

The exclusive bottling will provide whisky enthusiasts with a taste of this young, smokey and fiery spirit, as a sample of what's to come. Truly a collectible piece of New Zealand distilling history. The single malt is being made from barley grown in the South Island and kilned using New Zealand Manuka wood. Rarely produced in New Zealand, smoky or peated whiskies normally hail from Scotland, and have cult followings of self-proclaimed 'peat eaters'. This new Thomson staple will impart a smooth natural smokiness reminiscent of peated Scotch, but will be entirely unique to New Zealand with its distinct Manuka notes. Great NZ whisky gift for someone special or corporate gift.

Inspired by a smorgasbord of tastes and interests – ranging from music and design to history and craft beer – the partners behind Thomson Whisky started small, with ‘two barrels, a unique bottle, and a business card’. They wanted to make a whisky Kiwis could be proud of, figuring that, if all else failed, they’d at least be able to drown their sorrows in style.

What started as a local story, shared with friends and bartenders, has grown into an international business. The formula for their success? Using only time-honoured methods, but with passion and creativity and a heartfelt respect for the process. Putting everything into the bottle.
