For the past twelve months we have been working on a barrel aged beer program for pilot batch brewing. Our intentions were to make good beer, that also complimented our style of whisky.

The second of the series is this Ginger Beer Cask Finish.

A sweet nose of honeycomb, buttered ginger cake, and fresh lime syrup. Biscuits and more fresh citrus and ginger on the palate. Medium to long finish, sweet with oak and gentle spice.

Tasting Notes

Marmalade and honeycomb complemented with lime syrup and buttered ginger cake.

A silky palate, think custard and cinnamon drizzled in golden syrup. Followed by bursts of fresh ginger, citrus fruits and ginger bread biscuits. Underlying notes of toffee, and malted vanilla milkshake. A unique whisky which showcases its initial bourbon cask maturation on the palate. Hints of rum and plenty of ginger flavours with a mild, balanced spice kick.

A medium to long finish with a continuing sweetness accompanied with oak, cinnamon, and a gentle ginger and citrus spice.

Please note, we have decided to not filter or flock this whisky to ensure it’s richness. As such, the whisky can appear cloudy or form into sediment at the bottom of the bottle. It’s perfectly safe, and nothing to worry about.

Allergens: May contain traces Gluten and Honey.
