The distillery is providing the opportunity for whisky enthusiasts to own a 100-litre first-fill ex-bourbon cask, filled with new make spirit, and matured in the on-site bonded warehouse.
The resulting single malt whisky can be traced from farm to bottle and is said to boast a flavour profile unlike any other in the UK, thanks to inspiration drawn from the founders’ experiences in Tasmania.
Locally grown Yorkshire barley will be traditionally floor malted in England’s oldest working maltings, before being mashed and fermented at the distillery, then distilled in their 900 litre Tasmanian copper pot still.
Commenting on the news, Chris Jaume, Cooper King Distillery, Co-Founder, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for us; everything we’ve done over the last two years has been in preparation for production of our first whisky. We can’t wait to fill the first casks in a few weeks and continue our whisky journey”.
Cooper King Distillery’s initial batch of single malt whisky, made using Yorkshire barley, is scheduled to go into production later this month, with a projected release date of 2023. The private purchase casks will be available for around £2,200.
