Purchase a bottle of the late Lord Mayor's, Alderman Peter Estlin's special edition single malt whisky for your own enjoyment or as a thoughtful gift. The bottle contains 70cl and is a blend of 1st fill bourbon and red wine casks from Alderman Peter Estlin's private reserve with a touch of Pedro Ximenez sherry. All net proceeds from the sale price go to The Lord Mayor's Appeal.
The Cotswold Distillery began making this unique release the same way as their flagship single malt. High and narrow spirit cuts, following on from a long fermentation using two yeast varieties, are responsible for the high ester count in our new-make spirit, resulting in a creamy and fruity flavour.
It was then matured the new-make spirit at 63.5% ABV in the Lord Mayor’s ex-Bourbon casks and shaved, toasted and recharred American Oak red wine barriques. During this time it also filled a 500L ex-Pedro Ximenez Sherry butt with our new-make spirit, which was left to age for 3.5 years. These three casks were blended in roughly equal measures and then re-casked for an additional month. The addition of the sherry cask has added a different layer of spice and fruit to our flagship single malt. This truly special bottling has been diluted to 46%, non-chill filtered and without any additional colouring.
The Cotswold Distillery don’t believe in rules when it comes to enjoying whisky – sip this neat, over ice, in a cocktail – however you like!
