Cotswolds Founder’s Choice Single Malt Whisky


Price: £64.95 (US$89)

English producer Cotswolds Distilling Company secured two Master medals and two Golds in the World Whisky round.

Master winner Cotswolds Founder’s Choice single malt whisky impressed with its “rich Sherry spice” nose, and “hint of orange peel, oak influence and spicy, dry” qualities on the palate.

The whisky has been aged in shaved, toasted and re-charred (STR) casks, which were designed by the late Dr Jim Swan to optimise flavour and colour extraction from the oak and deliver an “extremely active” maturation without the need for smaller casks.

The spirits producer also grabbed a Master medal for Cotswolds Dry Gin during the blind tasting.
