Starward Whisky have signed a sponsorship deal to be the Official Whisky Partner of the Michelin Guide in North America.
It means that Starward will work with the leading authorityf for the next year in a partnership that complements Starward’s simple brand ethos of being a delicious and versatile whisky, crafted to pair well with food.
Starward Founder, David Vitale, said food was an intrinsic part of Starward’s brand philosophy and DNA.
“l grew up in an Italian family in the centre of Melbourne, and food was always at the heart of everything I did. We’ve crafted our whiskies to be the most food friendly whisky you’ll ever taste. We’re also fierce supporters of, and take inspiration from Australia’s eclectic food and drinks industry, so to partner with a leading organisation such as Michelin, who are equally as enthusiastic, and catalysts of culinary innovation, made a great deal of sense to us,” he said.
Starward has become the fastest growing Australian whisky brand as it continues to capture the imagination of a global foodie audience following its launch into the US and its expanding European footprint.
Starward whiskies are fully aged in Australian red wine casks, which the distillery says create an unique flavour profile that pairs perfectly with food.
