The Cotswolds Distillery uses 100% locally grown barley, which is traditionally floor-malted by hand at Warminster, Britain’s oldest working malting. The barley is mashed and fermented for over 90 hours before being distilled twice in their bespoke copper pot stills.

Cotswolds Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky, is said to deliver notes of brown sugar, cherry pie and roasted coffee beans on the nose. Followed by notes of dark stone fruits and roasted almonds on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Nickolas Franchino, Head of Production at Cotswolds Distillery, said: "I love a sherry cask whisky as it is one of the truly iconic single malt whisky styles.  Good sherry casks give rich, fruity, spicy and nutty flavours that marry perfectly with the underlying malt character and are a joy to savour."

Cotswolds Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky, will be available exclusively from the distillery from October 15th, for a RRP of £64.95.
