Stirling Distillery unveils exclusive whisky set
Scotland-based Stirling Distillery has revealed a limited edition single malt whisky set that will comprise six bottles matured in various casks.
Founded by husband and wife June and Cameron McCann, the Stirling Distillery has debuted its VI Casks for King James whisky set, which will be released on a bi-annual basis from 2027.
The six bottle set will feature one bottle from six different casks: Bourbon, Sherry, Port, rum, wine and Madeira.
Cameron said: “We are delighted to be launching this unique VI Casks for King James bottling. If your preference is for rare bottles rather than investing in casks, then the limited edition VI Casks for King James is the perfect choice.
“I’m very conscious of cost and want the whisky to be affordable to enthusiasts like myself.”
The distillery unveiled its first series of whiskies last year. According to the founders, this marks the first time that Scotch whisky has been produced in Stirling since 1852, when the original Stirling Distillery closed its doors. It is also the distillery’s first foray into new make whisky.
June commented: “For us, the essential components for creating a truly special whisky are simple; from using only the best water, yeast and malted barley to the care that goes into hand-selecting the best quality casks to develop the rich flavours.
“Whisky production is a delicate process that takes time, love and passion and we’re excited to start our whisky journey.”
The distillery selected wood from locations worldwide for the casks.
The VI Casks for King James will be laid down in a traditional dunnage in sight of Stirling Castle to ensure minimal temperature variation between seasons.
Only 300 bottles will be available per single cask, and each set will cost RRP £350 (US$461).
Sets can be ordered online at stirlingdistillery.com/whisky, and will also include a branded polo shirt and an exclusive pin badge.
