Our Spirits

At Tin Shed, we pride ourselves on producing artisan spirits that do not disappoint.

Our focus is always on flavour rather than efficiency. Everything is done by hand with meticulous attention to detail and quality. We use local grain, local peat and local Mallee stumps to smoke our whisky. We do not chill-filter our whiskies or rums, so it is quite common to see some flocculation in the bottle (give it a good shake and it will dissolve again). 

Whisky and rum making is an art; it requires good quality ingredients, good oak, skill and, finally, enough time in the right environment to produce the depth and richness of flavour we strive for in our spirits. We aim to produce a masterpiece each time; a whisky or rum that will entice, tease and satisfy the most discerning palate and deliver enjoyment with every sip.

Piotr Vodka is a labour of love. Tin Shed Founder Vic Orlow's father was a Cossack with a passion for vodka made the way was it in his village 100 years ago and our vodka is named after him.

Tasting Notes

Nose: A faint wine like note, but since it’s called “The Merlot” it would be surprising if there wasn’t. That said, the nose is not so much winey as it is grapey. There is the unmistakable malt note and an unusual, but very pleasant hint of Turkish Delight dusted in icing-sugar, coconut and the faintest of fruit tea.

Palate: The palate is both fruity and spicy. That Turkish Delight now has a milk chocolate coating. The mouthfeel is full and round, without being heavy.

Finish: Dry, nutty and warm with considerable length.

Provenance

51% ABV

Cask # 133, ex Merlot, French Oak, 225 litre

Comment:  The 51% ABV certainly doesn’t come across as anything inappropriate. There is just a beautiful, subtle warmth assisting the balance to hit the sweet spot. A simply beautiful dram that is disgracefully easy drinking!

Tasting Notes

Piotr's Malt Vodka

Nose: The initial nose is gentle, subtle and intriguing, with floral notes drifting in and out of range. As the glass warms, notes of malt make themselves known.

Palate: The first impression is of malt, the stuff they added to milkshakes when I was a little tacker back in the dark ages. That impression builds to a crescendo of YO-YO biscuit flavour that builds and is really rather pleasant.

Finish: The YO-YO's just keep on rolling on by in one of the longest finishes I have ever encountered in a vodka. As the YO-YOs disappear in the distance the final impression is of a faint white pepper.

Provenance

NAS

37.5% ABV

Piotr's Vodka is made from a mixture of traditional Cossack wheat spirit married with our own barley malt spirit that would otherwise be destined to become whisky.

Founding partner Vic Orlow produced this vodka as a salute to his late father, Piotr Mikhailovich Laptev in the style that Piotr used to enjoy in pre-war Russia. I think Piotr would have been very proud and pleased with the result.

Excellent straight out of the freezer, over ice or in a cocktail, especially in a Bloody Mary.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Molasses, grass, caramel, cherry blossom, dark chocolate coated orange candy, orange peel and marmalade.

Palate:  Seville orange with matcha Japanese green tea bitterness and chocolate

Finish:  The finish is reasonably long. What starts out as a duel between the sweetness of the port and the influence of the oak finished up as a waltz, or maybe a tango!

Provenance

Comment: This is a rum for grown-ups. The sickly sweetness so common in commercial rums is missing, so too the presence of added spices. It is smart, graceful and sophisticated.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Spices – cloves and nutmeg, oak, dried grass, rum'n-raisin ice cream, caramel, apricot jam, gooseberry pie, damp (coniferous) forest floor and pine cones; adding water brings out truffles over vanilla ice cream

Palate: some warmth, just enough to know your drinking at 46%; spices again with a subtle pleasant toffee sweetness; chilli chocolate; becomes creamy with a hint of eucalyptus when water added.

Finish: Burnt toffee brittle on the finish before cough sweets, honey and a lingering spice finish with more cinnamon and cloves 

Balance:  swings like a pendulum to start with, but finishes nicely in the middle.

Provenance

American Oak, 75% port, 25% sherry

Comment: This is a bold whisky - perfect now the nights are getting a bit cooler. A wood fire inside and snow outside is required to enjoy it more.  See the video of tasting notes here.
