Archibald Oliver inherited 800 acres of the family property when pioneer William passed away in 1888, but it was Archibald’s stern Ruth, whom he married in 1879, that kept the family business in health while Archibalds and his brothers led a more scurrilous lifestyle. Records show grape payments made by ‘Kay Brothers’ in 1925 to ‘Mrs Oliver’ whose husband Archibald had long since passed.

AROMA
Rich & pungent, the aroma of muscat and sultana cake leaps from the glass. Dried apricots, honeysuckle, nutty notes and a hint of candied citrus.
PALATE
Continuing onto the palate a viscous explosion of flavour. Lovely sweet spirit carries the rich flavours of glace fruits and the nutty creamy oak influence. A flavour that lingers and lingers
HISTORY

Ruth Oliver was married to second generation Archibald Oliver, who inherited a portion of the property from his father William Oliver. Unfortunately, family tales tell a story of a man who was quite partial to a drink, and Archibald died in 1910, leaving Ruth to run the substantial family farm. Ruth took this in her stride, and was known to be a hard task master. Heck we don’t even have one photo of her smiling!
