To begin, the wood is managed and we continue to house the environment and casks which best affect the aging to achieve the unique results which we strive for.

TruthbeTold

Winner of:
Gold Medal – International Spirits Challenge - 2020
Silver Award at the International Wine & Spirits Challenge - 2020

Some famous distilleries are fiercely protective of their whiskies and adapted a process called tea-spooning; as in adding a teaspoon of another malt. This is so 'Independent Bottlers' cannot call it a Single Malt or use the Distillery name. This exceptional cask in its previous incarnations was known as 'Wardhead' and clues to its identity lie within the label.
