    First Distillery Exclusive Single Malt: The Coopers’ Cask Release

    The Coopers’ Cask Release is the result of a collaboration between ourselves, Glasgow Distillery and US based Kelvin Cooperage, launched in celebration of the ancient skill of coopering; the art of creating casks made from wooden staves bound by metal hoops.

    The brainchild of two highly skilled coopers, Hugh McMurray from The Glasgow Distillery and Kevin McLaughlin from Kelvin Cooperage, The Coopers’ Cask Release takes the unpeated spirit from an exceptional ex-port cask filled at Glasgow Distillery in 2015, and lays it to rest in a unique hand-built cask which consists of half heavily charred virgin oak staves from Kelvin Cooperage and half ex- Glasgow 1770 Single Malt cask staves.

    Each set of staves interlocks with the other to form one unique vessel - a perfect Hogshead - which highlights the power of Kelvin Cooperage’s virgin American Oak, balanced against the wonderfully smooth and fruity spirit being produced here at The Glasgow Distillery.

    403 individually numbered bottles, packaged in an individually numbered presentation carton, each containing a booklet that tells the tale behind the collaboration cask

    Non-chill filtered and natural in colour

    The Cask number 15/087 is bottled at a strength of 53.3% ABV and priced at £59 per bottle

    I like this wine very much. The bottle looks very good. It tastes of aging. It has an oak taste, but this will not hinder its activity. The aftertaste is sweet. You look weird. This fake heavy wine, very very good
    • Nose
      Smells more oak
    • Taste
      It tastes okay, the taste is not very irritating, and it will not make the throat uncomfortable
    • Finish
      Sweet and full of fragrance
