    Official Info:

    Distillery Projects 005 all comes from STR cask number 109, filled in October 2016 and bottled in June 2019, and is 100% pot distilled spirit. It’s a wine barrique with a 220L capacity (which is relatively small, meaning that we’ve only got 544 x 50cl bottles from this cask) and it’s a ‘first fill’ cask, which means that our spirit is the first to fill it since the wine left. We only filled a small number of these STR casks in 2016, so this is a really unique chance to try it.

    The cask held Rioja wine for five years. Once the wine was disgorged, the cask was reconditioned by some of the best coopers in Jerez, by shaving, toasting and re-charring (STR) which meant that it has retained much of the fruit-driven flavours from the wine but has also allowed sweetness and spice from the oak to keep shining through. This has led to a cask that delivers a really beautiful and balanced maturation, giving lots of flavour but not overwhelming the character of our spirit. The use of this kind of cask was pioneered by the late Dr. Jim Swan, our consultant and mentor, giving it an extra poignancy.

    Tasting note: Soft, floral and sweet with notes of honey, orange chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla buttercream, raspberry sherbet and biscuit.
