Bimber Re-Charred Oak Casks – Batch 001 (51.9% ABV) has been produced from a vatting of heavily charred American oak casks, which were laid down to mature in 2016.

This latest release was produced from the distillery’s single farm barley and malted on a dedicated floor at Warminster Maltings before being fermented for seven days in bespoke, on-site constructed American Oak washbacks.
Distillation took place in Bimber’s customised stills, which possess an increased copper surface area, which is said to result in a light and fruity, but layered new make spirit.
Bimber Re-Charred Oak Casks – Batch 001, follows on from the distillery’s inaugural release ‘The First’, which sold out in less than three hours, when it launched last month.
Commenting on the news, Darius Plazewski, Bimber Distillery Founder and Master Distiller, said: “Over the past few weeks, it has been a great privilege to see people enjoying our inaugural release, and hearing such positive comments about its remarkable early maturity. We’re now excited to unveil our next chapter with the release of our Re-charred Oak Casks expression. With a larger number of bottles available for this batch produced release, I’m excited to be able to share our single malt whisky with a growing number of people as they join us on the continuing journey of Bimber.”
Limited to 5,000 bottles, Bimber Re-Charred Oak Casks – Batch 001, will initially be available direct from the distillery’s website from October 23rd, before going on general release from November 8th. RRP £65.00.
