Melbourne, Australia-based The Gospel is known for its outstanding rye whiskeys. Yet the first barrel it ever filled was filled with rum. This 7-year-old Single Cask Rum, to be exact. Predating the pandemic, it was double distilled in direct-fired pot stills from Australian sugarcane and spent much of its life in a charred Australian red wine cask. As a fitting finish for the now-whiskey-focused distillery, it was finished in in a freshly disgorged Straight Rye Whiskey barrel. The resulting liquid still has the sweet, slightly fruity profile of rum, but with hints of its rye whiskey influence, making it equally as well-suited to sipping on the rocks or serving as the base for a cocktail.
