PORFIDIO | 2G, a single-variety, single-malt, single-cask, single estate whisky made from 100% Blue Barley.
All original Scotch Whisky, however, at least up the 18th century, was made exclusively from barley. And so, we thought that it would be a dainty idea to do the “original, old-fashioned thing” by creating a whisky made from 100% barley a la ecossaise, thus literally creating a single variety whisky.
Whisky yeasts, on their part,come in two types: those that neutralize the taste on purpose, the dry style,and those which tease out the fruity notes from the grain. As a question of opinionated preference, we chose the second, because we loved the taste, a wonderfully flavorful, fruity whisky faithful to its raw material and terroir, raised to its full potential by delicate notes of the finest Quercus Alba oak through its ageing in the highest quality Australian-made virgin 110 liter oak casks.
