This is our third release of straight spelt whiskey. We’ve always appreciated the qualities of spelt in the distillery.While similar to wheat, we find it to be decidedly more interesting than its more cultivated relative. It makes a whiskey that’s sweet and bready, with notes of brioche and toasted nuts as well as a slight, pleasant grassiness. During the mashing process, it has a distinct and unusual asparagus aroma, but that totally disappears after fermentation.

Aged just under four years; 307 375ml bottles produced; released November 2017.
