Bimber Distillery has released its first distillery exclusive bottlings.
Three single cask expressions, which have all been bottled with natural colour and no-chill filtration, will be available to purchase from February 20.
Sherry Cask #34 was laid down in 2016, Bimber’s first year of production and it is bottled at 53.9% abv. A total of 65 bottles are available at £80 each.
Virgin Cask #28, also from 2016, has been matured in American oak and is bottled at 53.1% abv with 70 bottles available at £75 each.
Peated Finish #64PF is Bimber’s first ‘finished’ whisky release. Following an initial maturation in ex-bourbon the liquid was transferred to an ex-Islay quarter cask for one year of additional maturation and then bottled at 54.2% abv. One hundred bottles are available at a price of £75.
New Make Batch 172 has been produced to meet the high levels of interest from enthusiasts for exploring Bimber’s light and fruity spirit character before it begins its maturation journey. The 100 bottles are bottled at ‘filing strength’ 63.5% abv and are available at a price of £38.
Founder and master distillery, Darius Plazewski, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer visitors to Bimber three truly special single casks bottlings to take home after finishing their tours of our distillery. These casks were selected by the team because of their reflection of our naturally fruit-forward style, but also as a demonstration of the remarkable versatility of our single malt whisky. Whilst the three casks offer a diverse array of aromas and flavours, Bimber’s spirit character runs strongly throughout each release.”
He added: “Throughout 2019 we received many requests to bottle our new make spirit. We’re therefore thrilled to now offer distillery visitors a spotlight on our house style before our spirit has been laid down for maturation.”
Bimber Distillery was established in 2016 in Park Royal, London.
