Bimber releases first Founder's series single malt whisky

Bimber Distillery has announced the release of the first bottling of its four-year long Founder’s series.

The Founder’s series expressions are exclusively available to members of Bimber’s Founders Club.

Each release from 2019 through to 2022 will be drawn from one of the distillery’s oldest casks and bottled as a cask strength, single cask release limited to 200 bottles.

The inaugural edition of the Founder’s series has been drawn from ex-bourbon cask #16, which was laid down in 2016, Bimber’s first year of production.

The cask was selected by Bimber’s master distiller for its “extraordinary reflection” of the distillery’s naturally fruit-forward spirit style, as well as its “remarkable level of maturity”.

Master distiller Darius Plazewski said: “We have been overjoyed and humbled by the reception that our inaugural single malt (The First) and our recently red-charred Oak Casks has received across the industry and particularly amongst whisky enthusiasts. Our Founder’s Club members share our passion for the highest quality, handcrafted whisky, and we are delighted to now share this exceptional single cask release with them.”

Bimber’s Founder’s Club was launched in May 2019 as a comprehensive package for enthusiasts wanting to join the distillery on its early journey. Members receive four limited edition bottlings drawn from Bimber’s highest quality casks (one each year until 2022) as well as exclusive behind the scenes access to the distillery and a range of discounts on all online orders.

Bimber 2019 Founder’s Club bottling is limited to 200 bottles and it is available to Bimber Founder’s Club members worldwide.
