The Whiskymaker's Reserve

In the perpetual whisky life-cycle of beginnings and blending, is it ever possible to perfectly fulfil ambition? The whiskymaker’s inner pursuit of perfection fuels an eternal drive to better himself. His holistic role, at the helm throughout the liquid’s journey through the distillery, unlocks infinite variables and never-ending flavour possibilities.

 

The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of oak and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a house style. Creating a new whisky requires a framework of sorts, but there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. The architecture of each release of Whiskymaker’s Reserve will evolve in keeping with both our increasing sherry cask influence and our sense of adventure.
