Our Founder's Choice Single Malt Whisky is our first cask strength release, made with 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley and aged exclusively in our founder Dan's favourite casks: shaved, toasted and re-charred American oak red wine barriques. These uniquely active casks give a rich and intense maturation to our fruity new make spirit, offering toffee, oak and red fruits, and a beautiful, deep colour.

Awarded 'Best English Single Malt' at the World Whiskies Awards 2019

Carefully sourced ingredients

Malt: Odyssey, grown on Cotswolds farms and floor-malted at Warminster Maltings.

Yeast: Two complementary varieties - Anchor and Fermentis - to ensure good yields and excellent fruity flavours.

Water: Village water supply - filtered, softened and demineralised before use.

Wood: Shaved, toasted and re-charred 225-litre American oak red wine barriques, made for us at the cooperage in Portugal in a process designed by the late Dr Jim Swan.

Tasting notes

Nose: Dry hay and cut wood, with dark chocolate and dried figs, and plums in sweet syrup.

Palate: Warming cereal and toast notes, with lots of fresh red fruits and butterscotch.

Finish: Hints of spicy oak, lots of dried fruit and a lingering nutty, dry note.
