Fleurieu Distillery - Cartoon Lurve Single Malt Whisky - South Australia 52% 700ML
Award: Gold Medal – Craft Spirit – American Distilling Institute Awards 2020.
Sometimes love is found in the strangest of places. The chance meeting of a one-eyed
muscle bound sailor with waif of a girl the shape of a toothpick sparked a truly unique
relationship. At Fleurieu Distillery we name our barrels as well as number them. Popeye and Olive were two peated whisky barrels filled on the same day – and named after these two cartoon characters. There is never any guarantee the whisky from barrels named after couples will end up in the same bottle. Sometimes though, there is that certain magic and the whisky from Popeye and Olive certainly had this for us. As Celine Dion so aptly puts it, if you are truly in love you’re not in love, you’re in “lurve”.
