About Us

The Bond Store Pty Ltd trading as The Baroque Single Malt Whisky Company aka Baroque Whisky, are an Australian licensed alcohol manufacturer, based entirely in Australia. We work exclusively with the world’s best distillers, to design, mature and bottle Single Malt Whisky, of premium and ultra-premium standard. We proudly stand as artisans of the spirit, cask, and environment and are dedicated to the pursuit of crafting single malt whisky that embodies our core values of Contrast, Movement, Quality, Colour, and Provenance. These values serve as our guiding principles, infusing our every endeavour with reason, purpose, and passion.

  • Contrast:

We believe that true artistry lies in embracing the diverse facets of whisky production. We celebrate the balance between tradition and innovation, marrying the old with the new, and juxtaposing flavours that surprise and delight. Contrast fuels our creativity, making every sip an exploration of complexity and depth.

  • Movement:

Just as the river winds its way through the landscape, our whisky evolves through its journey of maturation. We value the dynamic nature of time, allowing our spirits to gracefully interact with the oak casks that hold them. Movement, and monitoring of the same, is essential to impart character, enable refinement, and drive distinct personalities into our whisky designs.

  • Quality:

Quality is not a goal; it is our standard. We are unwavering in our commitment to crafting exceptional whisky that is world class. Every step of our process, from sourcing the finest ingredients to meticulously nurturing the maturation process, is dedicated to upholding the highest standards of craftsmanship and appellation.

  • Colour:

The rich hues of our whiskies tell the story of their transformation over time. We honour the deep, alluring colours that emerge from the marriage of spirit and cask. This visual representation of the whisky’s evolution is a testament to the artistry of maturation, inviting enthusiasts to experience the journey through sight and taste.

  • Provenance:

We embrace the connection between product and ingredients. Provenance is a cornerstone of our philosophy, reflecting our dedication to forward and reverse engineering a range of unique, niche, and traditional expressions of whisky no longer found for sale. We proudly collaborate with distillers who responsibly choose to work with farm owners to provide spent barley to their animals for feed, demonstrating respect for the environment and the communities we are a part of.

Welcome to The Baroque Single Malt Whisky Company, these are our designs….

ABOUT OUR PRODUCT

Our product is designed to global premium and ultra-premium award grade single malt Whisky standards and expectations:

    • All known appellations are respected and adhered to as protected by international law.
    • Our whisky contains zero additives and is bottled directly from the cask, without chill filtering or de-flocking.
    • We are committed to bottling our whisky in a natural state which includes naturally occurring elements, barrel char, and in some expressions, grape vine ash.
    • Our non-cask strength expressions use water sourced from a natural spring to finalise the offerings at specific ABV points >40%.
    • Our cask strength expressions are decanted from the cask directly into bottle in absolute natural state. They are in no way diluted and it is implied that our use of the term “cask strength,” only refers to “natural” cask strength, as decanted from cask.
    • Our use of the term “Port” or “Porto” in our offerings, implies that the casks used to mature our whisky, have previously held high grade Port that was made in the Portuguese Duoro Valley. The same applies to our use of the term “Sherry,” and its appellation to Spain’s region of Jerez.
    • All Ex-Maple casks have held only the finest Canadian AAA Grade maple syrup.
    • Traceability per distillery is enabled by unique identifiers, which form part of our SKU reference numbers.
    • All SKUs are limited to 60 x bottles per batch, and all releases are limited editions.
    • All SKUs are individually hand filled, numbered, and traced via cross-reference to provide provenance of maturation and finishing periods, cask origin, oak type, fill qty and shaving, char, and toasting levels.
    • Bottles are labelled with waterproof matt PVC with high gloss spot UV, embossed, gold foil stamped, and tamper sealed.
