Our limited edition Pineau de Charentes Cask Single Malt Whisky is the second expression in our Hearts & Crafts collection. This yearly limited edition series celebrates the Arts & Crafts movement which flourished here in the Cotswolds and stood for the importance of traditional craftsmanship - the same values upon which our beautiful rural distillery was built.
We've selected a small parcel of premium French oak ex-red wine casks seasoned with white Pineau de Charentes - a wonderful blend of fresh grape juice and Cognac. The sweet notes of this golden aperitif wine are well balanced by the French oak tannins, resulting in wonderfully rich notes of tonka bean, marzipan and caramelised peaches. All bottles come with a limited edition William Morris design presentation tube.
