A very special Christmas gift for whisky devotees! This autumn (2017), a second batch of the first Cotswolds whisky ever distilled went on sale in Warwickshire. To date, the young spirit has been awarded a very high score of 94/100 for two years running in Jim Murray’s annual Whisky Bible (generally agreed to be the world’s leading whisky guide). Distiller Zoë Rutherford describes it as ‘rich and fruity’ and it is expected to become something of a collector’s item.
Made from 100% locally grown barley and aged in ex-bourbon and red wine casks. The distillery also sells gin, absinthe, a summer cup (ie like Pimm’s), a Martini mix, sherry and ‘Cotswolvados'(!), all distilled and blended in the Cotswolds. To order or to find out more, click HERE
ABV 46%, £44.95. Ask for the Single Malt 2013 Harvest, Organic Odyssey (reservation)– mainland orders will be dispatched in mid-December, in time for the Cotswolds whisky to reach recipients by Christmas day
