Daftmill 2006 Single Cask Royal Mile Whiskies Exclusive, is one of the very first exclusive bottlings from the Lowland farm-based distillery, where distillery founder and owner, Francis Cuthbert, has always maintained that the whisky he makes is for drinking and sharing.
Royal Mile Whiskies, is also encouraging those who buy a bottle to drink and share it, with the launch of a social media competition, where customers are asked to share an image of themselves enjoying a dram of the Daftmill with their open bottle, including the hashtag #CheersFrancis
One selected winner will receive a bottle of the Daftmill 2006 Single Cask Royal Mile Whiskies Exclusive, along with a bottle of Berry Bros. & Rudd’s Mystery Cask bottling, a single cask whisky from an undisclosed distillery, which customers are encouraged to open and taste, then guess the distillery it came from as well as its age.
Commenting on the news, Arthur Motley, Royal Mile Whiskies’ Sales and Purchasing Director, said: “It was one of the most pleasurable days of my whisky buying career, spending hours with Francis in his warehouse opening any cask we liked the look of. We think we have found a perfect example from one of my very favourite distilleries.”
Also commenting on the news, Jonny McMillan, Assistant Reserve Spirits Manager at Daftmill’s Distributor Berry Bros. & Rudd, said: “It’s very tempting with ‘rare’ bottles like this to squirrel it away for many years, or even flip it into auction, so we’re very excited to back Royal Mile Whiskies’ incentive to help persuade Daftmill fans to open and enjoy this glorious bottling.”
Daftmill 2006 Single Cask Royal Mile Whiskies Exclusive, will be available exclusively from Royal Mile Whiskies from July 18th, for a RRP of £144.95. Details of its #CheersFrancis competition, will appear on its social media channels over the next few weeks.
