LORD MAYOR'S RESERVE SINGLE MALT WHISKY

Lord Mayor of London Peter Estlin is a keen whisky connoisseur and supporter of the Cotswolds Distillery. At his request, we have blended several of his personal casks with our first release of sherry cask-aged whisky to create this very special limited edition release. Part of the proceeds of each sale is destined for the Lord Mayor's Appeal. 

(All bottles come with a presentation box, packed separately to avoid damage in transit.)

Please note these bottles are unnumbered.
  • 700ml
  • 46% ABV

A deliciously rich and fruity dram honouring the City of London.

 

Carefully sourced ingredients

Malt: Odyssey, grown on Cotswolds farms and floor-malted at Warminster Maltings.

Yeast: Two complementary varieties - Anchor and Fermentis - to ensure good yields and excellent fruity flavours.

Water: Village water supply - filtered, softened and demineralised before use.

Wood: A blend of premium first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels and shaved, toasted and re-charred American Oak red wine casks from the Lord Mayor's private reserve, married with a single ex-Pedro Ximenez Sherry butt.


Tasting notes

Nose: Cooked apple, caramel, a hint of wood char and digestive biscuit.

Palate: Seville orange, warming cinnamon notes, hazelnut and barley sugar.

Finish: Dry and nutty, with lingering oak spice.

Lovingly crafted

We began making this unique release the same way as our flagship single malt. High and narrow spirit cuts, following on from a long fermentation using two yeast varieties, are responsible for the high ester count in our new-make spirit, resulting in a creamy and fruity flavour.

We then matured the new-make spirit at 63.5% ABV in the Lord Mayor’s ex-Bourbon casks and shaved, toasted and re-charred American Oak red wine barriques. During this time we also filled a 500L ex-Pedro Ximenez Sherry butt with our new-make spirit, which was left to age for 3.5 years. These three casks were blended in roughly equal measures and then re-casked for an additional month. The addition of the sherry cask has added a different layer of spice and fruit to our flagship single malt. This truly special bottling has been diluted to 46%, non-chill filtered and without any additional colouring.


Serving suggestions

We don’t believe in rules when it comes to enjoying whisky – sip this neat, over ice, in a cocktail – however you like!
