We were the only brewery in Cumbria to be contacted by the award winning English Distillery Company when they were approaching 12 English breweries to make an set of English single malts.
Their pitch was Scotland makes really good whiskey and England makes really good ale. The process of mashing in is the same as making whiskey making process. They loved what we were doing and we are completely focused on working with them on this exciting venture.
To develop the ultimate chaser we decided to use the actual recipe of each of our ales rather than a new blend.
Our first Single Malt is Old Faithful using the Old Faithful Mash.
Done properly from start to finish, distilled and filtered 5 times to get the very finest of spirit, which will hold it’s head up against any 20 year old Scottish whiskey.
