Tasting notes

Nose: Light caramel, apple and vanilla with a touch of chocolate.

Palate: Toasted cereal with a sweet malt character.

Lovingly crafted

We make our Cotswolds Reserve Single Malt Whisky in small batches, starting with 100% locally grown  barley which is traditionally floor-malted by hand for several days at Warminster. The malt is brought to the distillery where it is milled on-site and mixed with hot water in our mash tun. We then add two yeast varieties to the sugary liquid and run the fermentation for over 90 hours in order to generate plenty of fruity flavour compounds alongside the alcohol produced. During distillation, we only select a small section of the spirit run which is taken unusually early to capture the fruity notes and avoid the heavier, rougher elements that appear at the end of the run. Our slow distillation and high cut point results in our signature rich and fruity new make spirit, which is already smooth enough to drink. 

After being diluted to 63.5% ABV, our spirit is put into a combination of premium first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels and STR ex-red wine casks for full term maturation. Once fully matured, we disgorge the casks before blending and bottling the whisky by hand here at the distillery at a ratio of 80:20 - 80% Bourbon and 20% STR. Our Cotswolds Reserve Single Malt Whisky is bottled at 50% ABV at its natural colour and is non-chill filtered for maximum flavour.
