Scott has been a great supporter of Eden Mill from the beginning of our partnership with Celtic Football Club. He has worked closely with our sponsorship team over the years and has been involved in creating some of our collaboration products beginning with the Invincibles Gin, so we felt it was only right that we commemorated his achievements with something special.
We worked with the club, and the captain himself for one last time to create a unique collector's item for the fans.
Scott visited our site to meet with our head distiller and designer to choose the whisky liquid and artwork. Along with our whisky experts, he tasted 3 different whiskies and chose his favourite which was a bourbon cask finished blended scotch whisky, blended with Eden mill single malt from our finest bourbon and Sherry cask.
At Eden Mill we source the finest casks from around the world to mature and finish our whisky, Captain's Cask contains blended whisky finished in first fill bourbon casks on the banks of the Eden Estuary in St.Andrew's, this has been blended with Eden Mill whisky from our finest Bourbon casks and sherry hogsheads.
This wonderfully layered whisky leads from the front with creamy vanilla notes on the nose, balanced with a subtle aroma of fresh strawberries. This leads to a gentle spice and candied barley sugar all rounded off with a touch of dry toasted oak and hints of raisin.
