Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky

Cotswolds Single Malt Bottling Note

Very exciting stuff here, folks! This is the first single malt whisky from the Cotswolds Distillery (as well as being the first single malt whisky ever distilled in the Cotswold countryside!). A much-anticipated release, which has been produced using barley grown in the Cotswolds, distilled in their Forsyths copper pot stills (Mary & Janis) and aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and red wine casks. We've been eagerly awaiting this whisky, and we know plenty of you have been too!

Tasting Notes

Nose:  Honey and butterscotch layered with light peach and apricot fruits, and a hint of marzipan.

Mackinlay's Shackleton Blended Malt

Shackleton Blended Malt Bottling Note

Inspired by the whisky left behind by Antarctica by Sir Ernest Shackleton in the early 1900s and discovered frozen but intact over 100 years later, this blended malt continues in the footsteps of The Discovery and The Journey. It's created once again by Master Blender Richard Patterson based on the flavour profile of Shackleton's favourite tipple, though now more accessible than the aforementioned limited edition releases.

Tasting Notes

Nose:  Golden Grahams and crunchy brown sugar. A hint of cinnamon-dusted malt.

Palate: Juicy apple and orange, with contained honey richness.

Finish: Lingering butterscotch and waxy orange.

PRICE £34.95 70cl
