Most of its whisky is intended for blending but occasionally casks find their way, untouched, into the bottle as a single malt whisky. This refill hogshead has sat, slowly maturing, for 17 years, retaining the full malty, earthy character that is the essence of Deanston whisky.
At the time of completion it was the largest distillery in Europe and also makes a very well known gin. This ‘Coffey Still’ distillate was laid down in 1988 and has been bottled as naturally as possible to retain all of the soft American oak flavours.
Cambus Distillery was one of the largest in the world when founded in 1813 in Clackmannanshire. It closed in 1993 when its owners decided that their requirement for grain whisky could be satisfied by other distilleries in their portfolio. Sadly, it joins the list of numerous grain distilleries closed for good. This cask was filled in 1988 and has slowly maturing for 26 years but shows off the delicate and complex nature of the spirit.
It is up to the rare single cask offerings to show what this distillery can do.
This refill hogshead is full of candy floss and sweet fruits.
David Stirk, the man behind our beloved The Exclusive Malts line, is ready to show the world what his Gin is all about: made using the finest botanicals, including juniper and coriander, natural color and full flavor, expect hints of toffee and caramel, touches of vanilla and a sweet oak finish from this grown-up Gin. It has been created, barrel-finished and bottled with care and attention ensuring that as much flavour is left in as possible. It has not been filtered and may go slightly hazy, but worry not: this a good sign!
