Bechor Rye - Unfiltered Special Edition
As with everything at The Oxford Artisan Distillery, this unfiltered special edition goes to the heart of what we believe: to experiment with our ancient heritage grains, grown just for us within 50 miles of Oxford, alongside the best possible processes and casks to produce uniquely flavoured, great tasting spirits.
Working with an esteemed English artisan cooper we crafted four small casks from the best English Oak, charred to our exacting specifications, to create this; our firstborn, Bechor Rye. Distilled in 2017 by our Master Distiller this is a heavy-hitting Rye with a maturity far beyond what you would expect at this age. Rich notes of dark wood, spiced clove, and hints of smoke layer to create a full-flavoured classic Rye.
With just 140 flasks available this is a one-off special edition hinting at our whiskeys to come.
