The Gospel Straight Rye
Where Sazerac, Pikesville and Rittenhouse have become household names in Rye whiskey, you can soon add another. The new project of distilling duo, Ben Bowles and Andrew Fitzgerald of ‘Melbourne Moonshine’ fame has been four years in the making. Simply known as “The Gospel” it’s the country’s first distillery exclusively dedicated to Rye whiskey. Set in the backstreets of Melbourne’s Brunswick and built around a six-metre-high continuous column still and bespoke copper pot still, The Gospel also have the backing and expertise of industry big guns, including x Starward and Hippocampus senior staff.
