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: 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.
Single malt Scotch whisky distilled in Orkney – though the exact distillery has been left a mystery! Very often from the flavor notes and the name given to the whisky in question, a lot can be deduced! The coordinates on the bottle can be typed into google maps to give you a clue where this whisky was distilled. Aged in a single hogshead for 8 years. The result is notes of honey, light peat, and toffee apples. Have fun with this tasty puzzle.
