Cotswolds Single Malt // 750 ml
Whisky production is at the heart of everything they do at Cotswolds distillery. Their flagship Cotswolds Single Malt is a rich, fruity, and sippable whisky with a balance and depth of flavor that belies its young age with notes of honey, Seville orange marmalade, and dark red fruits. It was listed #22 on the 2021 World's Most Admired Whiskies from Drinks International.
Cotswolds award-winning single malt is made in small batches, starting with the the finest, 100% locally grown barley which is traditionally floor-malted by hand for several days at Warminster, Britain's oldest working maltings. The malt is brought to the distillery where it is milled on-site and mixed with hot water in the mash tun. They then add two yeast varieties to the sugary liquid and run the fermentation for over 90 hours in order to generate plenty of fruity flavor compounds alongside the alcohol produced. The distillers take only a small section of the spirit unusually early in the process to capture the fruity notes and avoid the heavier, rougher elements that appear at the end of the run. This slow distillation and high cut point results in their signature rich and fruity spirit, which is already smooth enough to drink at 75% ABV.
After being diluted to 63.5% ABV, it is put into a combination of highly active STR (Shaved, Toasted, and Re-charred) ex-red wine casks and premium first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels for full term maturation. Once fully matured, the casks are disgorged before being blended and bottled by hand at a ratio of 70:30 - 70% STR cask and 30% Bourbon. Cotswolds Signature Single Malt Whisky is bottled onsite at 46% ABV at its natural color, and is non-chill filtered for maximum flavor.
Cotswolds doesn't believe in rules when it comes to enjoying whisky—sip this neat, over ice, mixed with ginger ale, in a cocktail, or however you like!
