What is Upshot Red Corn Whiskey

Crafted with the finest Western Australian grains and aged for two years in Virgin American White Oak barrels, Whipper Snapper’s Red Corn Whiskey is a smooth but bold blend that delivers a unique taste experience. Proudly sourced from within the Western Australian region, the distillery uses red corn from a family-run farm in Kununurra.

This special and unique variety of corn is directly from farmer Christian Bloecker and has whiskey lovers eager to get their hands on.

The drop itself is golden amber in colour and smells both sweet and florally. With the flavours of vanilla, old English toffee, honey and a hit of green apple to start, it has a creamy texture and is finished with hints of caramel, brown sugar and chocolate. In comparison to the flagship, Upshot, by simply changing the type of corn, there has been such a significant flavour difference.

“This is Australia’s first red corn whiskey and, as always, is perfect for enjoying across all seasons in good company”.

With limited barrels left, Red Corn Whiskey is now available for pre-sale on our website for release on May 1st 2023.
