Terence Hill Whisky presented: St. Kilian Distillers release the counterpart to their Bud Spencer Whisky

The German Whisky Distillery presents a mild and a peated variation of "The Hero"


With the Terence Hill - The Hero - Whisky, St. Kilian Distillers bring together what belongs together: Two new editions will join the Bud Spencer Whisky from December 1, 2021.

After the Rüdenauer distillery announced its licensing cooperation with Bavaria Sonor Licensing and released the Bud Spencer Whisky (we reported on the launch of the unpeated Bud Spencer version and that of the peated one), calls for a Terence Hill Whisky could be heard immedeatly. After all, the two Italo-western-stars are known as a sworn twosome in the film world. Now the fans' wish for a counterpart to the Bud Spencer Whisky has come true: Terence Hill alias Mario Girotti gets his place in the whisky world, because St. Kilian Distillers were also able to secure the licensing for the Terence Hill Whisky brand.

Terence Hill joins Bud Spencer

The release of the unpeated and peated version of Terence Hill - The Hero - Whiskey will take place on December 1st, 2021. Like the new batches of Bud Spencer Whisky, Terence Hill Whisky is the marriage of St. Kilian Whisky with triple distilled whiskey from the Irish Great Northern Distillery. The latter was matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, the St. Kilian Whisky shows ex-rum cask notes according to the distillery's press release. Whether it was a finish or a part of the whisky was completely matured in rum casks was not explained in detail.

Both Terence Hill Whiskies are bottled without chill filtration and in natural colour. The unpeated Terence Hill Whisky offers 46% ABV, the peated version 49% ABV.

Tasting notes for the Terence Hill Whisky

Terence Hill - The Hero - Whisky (mild)

Colour: light gold

Aroma: Fruity sweetness with tropical fruits, pineapple and plantain, wonderfully accompanied by bourbon vanilla and cream caramel. In addition, a sweet touch of molasses with warming, spicy oak wood in the background.

Taste: Caribbean flair of sweet Bourbon vanilla and caramelised brown sugar, elegantly combined with fruity pineapple and sun-ripened banana, rounded off with pronounced oak spice and a pinch of cocoa.

Finish: Fruity pineapple cream and dark caramel linger pleasantly for a long time with a subtle dry oak spice and a hint of cocoa.

Terence Hill - The Hero - Whisky (smoky)

Colour: light gold

Aroma: The superficial wood smoke combines with sweet molasses, bourbon vanilla and a lot of cream toffee, accompanied by a fruity potpourri of vineyard peach and mango and a touch of marzipan in the background.

Taste: Strong and intense with a mix of peat smoke, sweet molasses, creamy vanilla and cream caramel, accompanied by ripe peach and a hint of mango. The soothing warmth of spicy oak and white pepper perfectly rounds off the multi-layered aromas.

Finish: Creamy toffee and sweet vanilla are replaced by spicy oak and a pinch of cocoa, while fine smoky notes linger for a long time.
