“Morpheus” (the Greek god of dreams) is a bespoke bottling made for Milroy’s of Soho in London.
Working closely with their whisky buyer, we created a special bottling of just 176 cases.
Morpheus - A Visionary Notion
In keeping with the whisky’s name, we pursued a visionary notion: the
combination of strong peaty notes with an underlying richness and
sweetness. To enhance the richness and sweetness of the malt we chose,
we did a secondary maturation on new American oak (something rarely
seen outside the dreams of the typical Scotch producer). In the end, this
comprised 30% of the final composition and gave us just the balance we
were looking for.
