203 year old Bladnoch Distillery has announced the launch of their UK online store this month by releasing three limited bottlings. These releases are the amongst the first to come from Bladnoch’s new Master Distiller, Nick Savage since he joined in July last year.
Bladnoch Single Cask 01 is the first in an annual five-part series of single cask bottlings hand-selected by Nick Savage. Cask 01 is a UK online exclusive and all 295 bottles were distilled in January 2008 and matured in an ex-red wine hogshead. Bottled at cask strength and non-chill filtered, the expression shows notes of red berries with floral honey, sweet oak and dark chocolate. The other four Single Cask bottlings for 2020 will be released in select markets worldwide.
Bladnoch’s 2020 release from the Talia range of rare, aged Single Malt will also be available via the UK online store. This year’s release is a Talia 26 Year Old Red Wine expression. Bottled at cask strength, the Talia 26 Year Old was pulled from the rarest barrels resting in the Bladnoch warehouses. This truly memorable malt shows notes of dark red berries, mature oak and sweet florals.
For the first time outside of their Visitor Centre, Bladnoch will be releasing their New Make Spirit exclusively on their UK online store. A look into the early stages of life of the Bladnoch Single Malts, the distillery’s New Make combines British barley and the pristine water from the River Bladnoch making it a beautiful expression of the region in which it was crafted. The New Make Spirit is fresh and creamy with notes of pear drops and fresh cut grass.
