Exciting day at the office

Things are getting very real now!

Today our still, Hilda, left the Kothe factory in Eislingen (near Stuttgart) in Southern Germany and she’ll be with us in Oswestry, Shropshire tomorrow morning between 08:00 and 09:00. Here is a photo of her loaded up on the truck….

We also took delivery of our first batch of casks today. These are a mix of ex-bourbon and new American oak and they travelled all the way from the Speyside Cooperage in Scotland. Here is a picture of them in our yard, patiently waiting to be filled…..

First batch of barrels

Next week is installation and commissioning so expect lots of updates!
