Best Australian Whiskey Brands 2023

We spend a lot of time here at DMARGE waxing lyrical about the world’s best beverages and none has received a more resounding reception than old mate, whisky.

The distilled alcoholic drink that started life in Europe before making its way to the U.S and Japan relies on various specific grains and wooden casks to achieve a distinct flavour profile that fans seek out. When further paired with the ageing constant known as time, magic often happens. Not to mention, it’s the base ingredient for the world-famous Old Fashioned cocktail. 

Today we’re not looking purely at the unattainable though. It’s all about taste, accessibility and Australia’s best-valued whisky that won’t send you broke. We’ve also tapped the mind and experience of Martin Eber of Time For Whisky on this one to ensure that the local selection is on point for any palate.
