As the premiumisation of the whisky category accelerates, with that comes higher quality boxes, higher price tags and arguably lower quality whisky. We believe we can create the whisky of old by maturing in only the highest quality of 1st fill sherry casks. This cask
"Whisky isn't made like it used to be" is a term we are all too familiar with. While this is not quite true as whisky is made the same way, but it's definitely not matured in the same high quality casks it used to be. Good whisky becomes bad whisky if matured in low quality wood and casks that have been used again and again. Our philosophy is simple, we either fully mature the water of life in 1st fill sherry casks at which point we sample and bottle if they are exceptional. For other casks we rerack into first fill sherry hogsheads and only bottle when they have achieved the nice dark colour and taste we are famous for.
Whisky doesn't taste any better if it comes in a luxury box and bottle. We won't release whisky in crystal decanters and mahogany boxes, we will leave that to others. Our whisky will be judged on the quality of the liquid inside the bottle.
