Purple Grain is a cask-strength celebration of our 5th Anniversary. Crafted from heritage grains, this whisky was matured in rare Moscatel Roxo Casks from Setúbal, Portugal, resulting in a decadent whisky with a refreshing, summery punch. The resulting whisky has strong hazelnut and almond notes sit alongside dried summer fruits, fresh herbs and our classic butter-pastry house character.

Our Anniversary Rye has been an eagerly awaited annual launch since its inaugural expression in celebration of our first birthday in 2018. Last year, for the very first time, our Anniversary Rye was a whisky and this year we’re chasing it up with something even more special. Introducing: Purple Grain.

TASTING NOTES

Aroma: Floral and herbal introduction with fruity notes progressing to berries, stone fruits and raisins. A complex grain profile with flapjack, buttery pastry notes, hazelnut, almonds, demerara sugar and black pepper.

Palate: Pain aux raisins with hazelnut milk chocolate. Hints of sour cream, sweet grapes and savoury salinity.

Finish: A hint of toasted sourdough, mint and Szechuan pepper.

Overall: Dried summer fruits and nuts pair with our classic butter-pastry house character.
