About Team Azzurro:
A Saga of Determination
Team Azzurro, led by the seasoned sailor Jack Kliner, has become synonymous with determination and grit on the high seas. The S&S34, though smaller in stature, has etched its place among the giants, nearly seizing overall victory against larger vessels.
Azzurro's rich blue hull, sparkling white deck, and faultless stainless-steel fittings make it a captivating sight and a serious contender in races nationwide.In the 2015 Sydney Gold Coast Yacht Race, Azzurro claimed overall victory, foreshadowing the team's relentless pursuit of excellence.
The 75th Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race saw Jack Kliner skippering Azzurro to a remarkable 3rd overall in IRC and 1st overall on ORCI. Now, with Round the World solo Yachtswoman Jessica Watson joining the crew, Azzurro is set to conquer new heights in the 2023 Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.

Crafted with the meticulous care synonymous with Hobart Whisky, this exclusive release is more than a whisky; it's an ode to courage, skill, and the spirit of adventure.
Matured in American oak ex-bourbon casks and finished in French oak Tawny casks, this 46.8% ABV whisky is a symphony of rich, intricate flavours. The nose is a vibrant bouquet of oceanic freshness, leading to a palate of sweet honey, smooth vanilla, and a gentle spice.
