    official information:

    Cotswolds Peated Cask Single Malt Whisky is hand-crafted in small batches using 100% floor-malted local barley. Long fermentations and double pot distillation, followed by maturation in ex-peated quarter casks, create a wonderfully-balanced rich and fruity whisky with subtle notes of peat smoke. Bottled at cask strength.

    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: Ex-peated quarter casks from Scotland

    Tasting notes:

    Nose: Vanilla with light charring and a touch of dried fruits and spice.

    Palate: Creamy peat smoke layered with light fruits and tannin-rich wood.

    Finish: Lasting finish of smoking embers, floral honey and woody sugars.

    We began making this single malt using 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley which is mashed and then fermented for more than 90 hours before a double distillation in our bespoke copper pot stills, resulting in a light and fruity new-make spirit.

    After being diluted to 63.5% ABV, we then filled ex-peated quarter casks from Scotland with the new-make spirit and left these to mature, allowing the rich and fruity spirit to take on a light smoked peat flavour. The whisky has been fully matured in these casks and bottled at cask strength (59.3% ABV), non-chill filtered and with no added colouring.
