The Coaster, whisky made by Timaru-based Southern Distilling Co, gets good review in Malt Whisky Year Book

(IRN News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)A Timaru-based distillery is considered to be up there with the best according to The Malt Whisky Year Book, the international whiskey review.

The Coaster, a whisky aged for four years before bottling, is the only New Zealand whisky picked for the international accolade.

Southern Distilling Company owners Peter Wheeler and Malcolm Willmott say the inclusion of the 'smoked peat, single malt nature' of The Coaster comes after a $4 million upgrade of the distillery.

Mr Wheeler says the recognition is great and says the company is about to release a new whiskey onto the market that Irish-kiwis will love.
