The Oxford Artisan Distillery 3 Year Old Home Nations Series That Boutique-y Whisky Company Description
Not only is this a single cask, and the first batch, this dram is even more special. This batch of 189 bottles comes from the very first cask that the Oxford Artisan Distillery had ever filled! A cracking wee piece of history, one that we very, very rarely get to see! We ask ourselves, where do those chaps at That Boutique-y Whisky Company find such drams? The answer this time is Oxford. The Oxford Artisan Distillery is a grain distillery, challenging preconceptions with an innovative outlook. This one is a single grain whisky made with grains found on surrounding land such as corn, rye, wheat, and malted barley. Aged for three years, it was given a finish in a Sauternes cask and is bottled at 50% abv. It is part of the Home Nations Series.
The label is designed to be characteristic of the first product from the distillery, showing the team harvesting grains with the city of Oxford in the background. A great one to talk about with your pals!
