We started whisky production soon after our still was installed in November 2017. As I’m sure you are aware, whisky has to mature in wood (casks, barrels, etc) for at least three years in order to be called whisky. Our very first whisky (or ‘new make’ as it is called after it has come out of the still) went into wood on the 10th of January 2018 and so we expect to have whisky for sale in January 2021. An interesting point about our whisky is that we are one of a small number of distilleries south of the Scottish border making our own wash (the beer that is distilled to produce whisky) on site. We have a philosophy of using only the finest malted barleys to produce a distinctive and characteristic new-make spirit. The spirit is currently being aged in a mixture of ex-bourbon, Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks. We have sold out of the 200 ‘futures’ from that very first ex-bourbon barrel and the 100 we released from our ex-sherry cask range.
Apart from the ‘futures’ (which are now sold out) we don’t have any other whisky products available at the moment…..but watch this space!
