FLAVOUR HUNTERS FESTIVAL 2022

This exclusive range of ‘Rare Releases‘ were produced for our Flavour Hunters Festival in May 2022. Of the six bottlings, we have four being released in Mexico over the course of 2023. All the whiskies are single malts from an individual distillery, bottled at their natural strength and across a range of flavour profiles. We worked with a wide variety of cask types to nudge our recipes in the right direction and these small batch single malts are great examples of how that variety of wood types helps to give us an infinite number of flavours to play with. That could be in some examples by getting the full impact of one cask type, or in others by using a mix of bourbon and sherry wood to create something completely different. Characterful spirit and characterful casks make for an incredible combination and helps us to continue to expand our horizons.

Spirit Notes

A fascinating aroma awaited us; each time we went back it changed! To mention just a few – aniseed, Himalayan salt, lemon grass essential oil, seaside swimming pool, Marie Rose sauce and extra virgin rapeseed oil. The taste neat ranged from cough mixture over salted caramel lime chocolate to crispy squid and prawns in a sweet chilli sauce. The addition of water released the scent of cranberry-pistachio white chocolate bark with sea salt as well as arugula salad with olive oil, lemon and parmesan cheese before, on the palate, yet again multifarious flavours of green tea, herbal liqueur, vegetable tempura with a soy dipping sauce and freshly foraged sea greens.
