William Morris, one of the leaders of the Arts & Crafts Movement spent much of his time in the summer in his Cotswolds home, Kelmscott Manor. The movement was created in the late 19th century to champion traditional, simple craftsmanship in contrast to the rapid industrialisation of Britain and the move away from traditional values and design.
The Cotswolds Hearts & Crafts Collection, will consist of annual limited editions, with each edition presented in a gift box with a different William Morris pattern, reinforcing the creative beauty of the Arts & Crafts Movement.
This first release in the new series, which is the distillery’s first ever European oak cask expression, is said to deliver notes of raisin, malted biscuit, peach and ripe pears on the nose. Followed by notes of honey, nectarine, lemon zest, creamy vanilla, warm oak and wood spice on the palate.
Limited to 1,680 bottles, Cotswolds Hearts & Crafts Sauternes Cask, is now available exclusively from The Cotswolds Distillery website, for a RRP of £74.95.
