Like us, many whisky fans adore whiskies that have been matured in ex-sherry casks. So we thought we'd talk about the sherry.
Sourced from Bodegas Baron, a 480 year old producer with a very modern outlook, the un-matured version of this Oloroso wine will be used to season our oak casks in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in the heart of Jerez in South West Spain, before we ship them to Scotland to fill them with whisky.
Sherry plays a crucial role in transforming the character of many of Scotland’s best-loved whiskies, and this sherry will enhance ours. So we thought it should be savoured and enjoyed while we wait for our whisky.
