Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky
Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky is the first whisky ever distilled in the Cotswolds; it uses 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley and has been aged in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels and reconditioned red wine casks. Rich, fruity and sippable.
On the nose, notes of honey and butterscotch layered with light fruits (peaches & apricots) and a hint of marzipan. Strong notes of tannin-rich malt hit the palate, alongside oils and dark sugar with lots of spice and caramelised seville orange marmalade. The finish is long and resinous, with dark red fruits and a hint of treacle.
The distilley use traditional production processes and equipment to produce their Cotswolds Single Malt. Locally-grown malted barley is milled and then mashed in ther 0.5-tonne mash tun, mixing the milled grain with hot water to produce worts. Yeasts are then added. They run the fermentation for more than 90 hours in order to generate plenty of fruity flavour compounds alongside the alcohol produced.
Then the distillations begin. First, in the wash still (Mary), and a second in Janis, our spirit still. In the spirit run, they only select a small section – the heart cut – which is taken unusually early in the distillation to capture the fruity notes and avoid the heavier, rougher elements that appear at the end of the run. The end result is a light, colourless, fruity new make spirit. This is diluted to 63.5%ABV and put into casks to mature. This release has been aged for just over three years, and is bottled non-chill filtered, with no added colouring, at 46%ABV.
