Claxton’s was formed in 2011 with the first range of single-cask Scotch whiskies finally ready for a very successful launch four years later in 2015. Building on this with subsequent releases and quickly developing a loyal following across Europe, by 2019 it was time to establish a cask maturation warehouse. One hundred years after the Landale family bought Dalswinton Estate in 1919, Claxton’s moved into Sandbed House on the banks of the River Nith, in the heart of the Scottish Lowlands, and the Dalswinton Bond was born.
Quality, variety, and individuality are at the forefront of Claxton’s ethos when combining spirit and wood for maturation. Every shape, size, and type of cask is used for a specific reason. Their releases currently include Warehouse No.1 and Warehouse No.8, Exploration Series, Grain Barn, and the Dalswinton Series.
Cask Type: Refill Sherry Hogshead
The Exploration series focuses on single-cask releases with quality and accessibility in mind. This range encourages customers to explore the whisky regions that might otherwise have been inaccessible.
Fresh fruit followed by a biscuity maltiness is a predominant characteristic of unpeated Benriach and this expression is no different. It delivers a classic style that epitomizes what Scotch Whisky is at its core. Benriach Distillery, owned by Brown-Forman, one of the largest US wine and Spirits producers, is well known for its three different types of distillate – all very different in style – classic unpeated, Highland peated, and triple distilled. Taken from a refill Sherry Hogshead this expression is an everyday dram.
