This latest release was produced using barley from Bimber’s single farm (Fordham & Allen in Basingstoke, Hampshire) where 100% of the distillery’s barley is grown. The whisky is entirely composed from the distillery’s earliest fully peated distillation that took place in May 2019.

Bimber - The 1st Peated, is said to deliver notes of pineapple juice, apricot cobbler, creamy toffee, feathery smoke, fallen leaves and touches of salinity on the nose. Followed by notes of smouldering logs, leaf mulch, smoked vanilla fudge, fruit and wood spice on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Dariusz Plazewski, Bimber Distillery Founder and Master Distiller said: “The team and I are truly thrilled to be able to share The 1st Peated with whisky lovers. This release represents a major milestone on the continued journey of Bimber and of our single malt London whisky. Not only is it the culmination of several years of investigation and passion, but being entirely produced by-hand, in-house - it is also truly embodies our continued dedication to traditional production methods.”

Limited to 1,140 bottles, Bimber - The 1st Peated, will be available from Monday 28th November, via a ballot on the Bimber website. RRP £130.00.
