Description

It all started back in 2014, when our founder Dan, a native New Yorker and whisky connoisseur, had moved to the Cotswolds after working in finance in London for many years. Seeking to leave behind that world and spend more time in the picturesque countryside of the Cotswolds with his family, it eventually dawned on him that he could combine his love of whisky with his desire to start a new business. A dedicated whisky fan, Dan saw the fields of golden barley around his house in the Cotswolds and had a brainwave ‘I suddenly thought, there’s barley all over the Cotswolds and nobody’s distilling it, let’s be the first!’

Having found a derelict site near his house, he set about building a distillery and a team to run it, and the doors of the Cotswolds Distillery opened in July 2014. The first whiskies were released in 2017.

Taste

Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky Peated Cask is hand-crafted in small batches using 100% floor-malted local barley. Long fermentations and double pot distillation, followed by maturation in ex-peated Quarter casks (Laphroaig) create a wonderfully-balanced whisky. Blended and bottled on site.

Holly’s Tasting Notes: Rich fruit, velvet plums, blueberries, and granola. Almost like blueberry yogurt with just wisps of earth and smoke. The palate shows much more smoke with honey and oak spice on the finish. Really lovely.
