We founded this distillery with the dream of creating wood-fired whisky. It takes a long time to make whisky- especially Scotch. Three years and a day, in fact. And it isn’t finished then. We reckon at seven years, we’ll have some pretty good tasting stuff.
In the meantime, we were inspired to make gin in a wood-fired still and were blown away by what we tasted. We chose botanicals that were robust enough to withstand the variable heat produced by a living flame. Our gin has 14 botanicals, some of which are local, and some from around the world. Some people think that if it’s made on wood-fire, it will taste smoky, but it doesn’t! It tastes rich and vibrant; a kaleidoscope of flavour.
The Journey to Wood-Fired Whisky
There are a few ways you can join us for this journey. You can buy a cask, buy a share of a cask, buy an inaugural bottle, or show your support with one of our t-shirts! We’ll keep you posted once these are ready. Either check back here or sign up for our mailing list to keep up to date.
