Talking about quality and rapid ageing with The Spirits Business
John Hyslop is currently running a small pilot plant with a 50-litre still to “establish proof of concept” for his technology.
He is in the process of building the larger commercial site – called Deviant Distillery – in Sandy Bay, Tasmania, which will contain one 900-litre still and have a capacity to produce 30,000 bottles a year. It is set to be commissioned by early 2018.
Speaking to The Spirits Business, Hyslop said he is not yet able to disclose specific details about the technology he uses to speed up the spirits maturation process since it is patent pending.
However, Hyslop confirmed that he cannot legally call his products ‘whisky’ due to their lack of ageing. Check it out!
