Cotswolds Reserve Single Malt Whisky
Light caramel, apple and vanilla with a touch of chocolate on the palate, followed up by toasted cereal with a sweet malt character. A lingering finish with warm notes of wood tannin.
Cotswolds Reserve Single Malt Whisky is made in small batches, starting with 100% locally grown barley which is traditionally floor-malted by hand for several days at Warminster. The malt is brought to the distillery where it is milled on-site. During distillation, a small section of the spirit run is taken unusually early to capture the fruity notes and avoid the heavier, rougher elements that appear at the end of the run. This results in their signature rich and fruity new make spirit, which is already smooth enough to drink.
After being diluted to 63.5% ABV, the spirit is put into a combination of premium ex-Bourbon barrels and ex-red wine casks for full term maturation. Once fully matured, the whisky is blended and bottled by hand at the distillery at a split of 80% Bourbon and 20% red wine. The Cotswolds Reserve Single Malt Whisky is bottled at 50% ABV at its natural colour and is non-chill filtered for maximum flavour.
