With his love of the wild grained timbers, teamed with all the facets of Whiskey, it was only time that Christopher combined his two passions together.
"The Vault" Whiskey Cabinet has been designed and constructed by Christopher, utilising Huon Pine salvaged by Hydrowood from Lake Pieman. Huon Pine trees are some of the oldest and rarest in the world, and grow exclusively in Tasmania. Taking around 500 years to mature, it is incredible to note that this timber starting growing before Australia had been discovered and before the world's oldest Whiskey distillery Old Bushmills had been established in 1608.
Christopher utilised the stunning Tasmanian Blackwood from Hydrowood, that has spent the last 25 years under Tasmanian waters. The interior is fitted with Tasmanian Kangaroo leather and secured with a Tasmanian Jacksons Lock.

Straight from the Workshop floor, this piece is the newest member to the Whiskey cabinet family. Deep from the Pieman Lake, this fiddleback Hydrowood Blackwood is so beautifully figured with wild grain.
