36: Never 25

Launched by Tayport-based Tay Spirits, Never 25 is thought to be Scotland’s first grain-to-glass eau-de-vie.

The expression is milled, mashed, fermented and triple-distilled in Fife, before fruit is added and macerated into the spirit.

According to the company, the process retains as much of the natural fruit flavours as possible. In each run, over 50kg of fresh fruit are introduced to the base spirit to soak and slowly extract the fruit juices.

Available in raspberry, strawberry, and apple flavours, the spirit then goes through a fourth distillation to “enhance” its flavour, resulting in a 42% abv eau-de-vie.
