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: Sherry Butt
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.
A 14-year-old Speyside whisky matured in a Sherry Butt. Glen Elgin is one of the most famous Diageo distilleries in the Speyside region and dates back to 1898. Their bottlings are known as true Speyside whisky, distinctive and elegant. Independent bottlings from Glen Elgin do not often appear on the market. This distillery also utilizes worm tub condensers so if you like styles of whisky like Craigellachie, Mortlach, and Ben Nevnis, where there is a heavier mouthfeel, this is for you!
