  1. Official tasting note

    official information:

    A marriage of carefully selected and blended sherry casks makes up this rich and fruity expression. Each yearly batch of our Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky is unique, drawn from our finest American and Spanish oak hogsheads & butts, some of which have been seasoned with dry Oloroso sherry and others with sweet Pedro Ximenez. All have been sherry-aged through their full maturation for a deeper and more flavourful whisky.

    Full of dark stone fruits and a hint of roasted almonds, followed by peppery oak spice.

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

    Serving suggestions
    Best enjoyed on its own, but we don’t believe in rules when it comes to drinking whisky – sip this neat, over ice, in a cocktail – however you like!

    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: American and Spanish oak hogsheads and butts, seasoned with Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry.

    Lovingly crafted
    We started making this release by using 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley from the Cotswolds which is mashed and then fermented for more than 90 hours before being distilled in our bespoke copper pot stills, resulting in a new make spirit with a fantastic fruity complexity.

    We then took our fruity new make spirit and aged it in American and Spanish oak hogsheads and butts seasoned with Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry. Once aged for its full term, we bottled the single malt whisky onsite with only minimal proofing down (57.4% ABV), non-chill filtered and without any added colouring.
