Storywood Tequila

While Dewar’s may have matured Scotch whisky in mezcal casks, Scottish brand Storywood added the influence of Scotch whisky to its agave spirits.

The Aberdeen-based company launched in 2017 and offers a range of Tequilas finished in ex-Scotch whisky barrels. To create its portfolio, Storywood exports Speyside whisky casks from Scotland to Mexico, where its products are aged and bottled.

The range includes reposado and añejo bottlings matured in a variety of Scotch whisky barrels. Prices start at £39.99 (US$55) for the brand’s Speyside 7 Reposado, which matured in ex-Speyside Scotch whisky barrels for seven months to produce a spirit with oak, vanilla and honey flavours on an earthy agave base.
