Starward Distillery was established in 2007 in downtown Melbourne by Melbourne native David Vitale who had been inspired by Tasmania’s Lark Distillery. Starward later partnered with Diageo enabling it to grow production and reach world markets. Starward sources all ingredients within a day’s drive of the distillery, and uses wine barrels from the nearby Yarra Valley and Barossa Valley.
Starward Nova is a double distilled single malt whisky using Australian malted barley, matured for three years in Australian red wine barrels.
Nova is bottled at 41% abv, without chill-filtration or added colouring.
