Both pre-orders for DP005 & DP006 have now now sold out; so from this point, sales will be on a first-come-first-serve basis from the distillery shop only and we cannot take payment over the phone or reserve bottles.
Both DP005 & DP006 will be on the shelves from Saturday 3rd of August so you can plan your visit and buy in-store. If you’re travelling especially to purchase these bottles in the days/weeks following the 3rd of August, please bear in mind the limited nature of these releases and call or email us first to check that it’s in stock.
If you were successful purchasing through the online pre-order, your bottles will be ready to collect in store from the 3rd of August. If your pre-order is for delivery you will be notified via email when these are ready for dispatch.
Thank you again for your enthusiasm and loyalty. We really appreciate your support and are very excited to say that whisky is on its way this autumn.
In good spirit,
The Distillery Team.
Distillery Projects 006 all comes from Fino cask number 104, filled in September 2016 and bottled in June 2019, and is 100% column distilled spirit. It’s a sherry butt with a 500L capacity (one of our largest casks giving us a yield of 1142 x 50cl bottles) and it’s a ‘first fill’ cask, which means that our spirit is the first to fill it since the original sherry was disgorged. We only filled three of these Fino casks in 2016 so, because it’s also filled with column-only spirit, it’s really unusual and, we think, unlike anything else available in the market.
Why Fino? Fino sherry is a dry, light, delicate style of sherry meaning that it really allows the distillery character and the subtle characteristics of our column spirit to shine through, creating a different flavour profile to other types of ‘heavier’ sherry styles, like Oloroso or Pedro Ximenez. It’s a less common cask used in whisky maturation and, when it is, it’s mostly used for ‘finishing’ rather than fully maturing as we’ve done here.
Tasting notes: Light, fragrant and spicy, with notes of grapefruit, fudge, baked apple, ginger biscuits, pineapple, coconut and black pepper.
Because of the nature of single cask bottlings, and the size of the casks used, there are fewer bottles available in each of these releases than 001-004. To that end, we're only making a small number available online, the rest will be on the shelves at the distillery.
Please note: because these releases are single cask, we are releasing them in 50cl bottles, max two per person. Unlike the previous releases they are not individually numbered.
