Cut Your Wolf Loose bottles Aberfeldy whiskyBy Melita Kiely
A British whisky bar has expanded its Cut Your Wolf Loose line with a new seven-year-old Aberfeldy bottling.
The whisky is the second expression from Brighton-based venue Cut Your Wolf Loose.
Distilled in July 2014, the seven-year-old Aberfeldy whisky was drawn from a single Bourbon, refill hogshead. It sits at 57.7% ABV.
Each bottle is labelled with custom artwork by London-based graffiti artist Tom Blackford. The labels depict a ‘rambunctious’ seagull dressed in ‘informal attire’.
Only 266 bottles of the Aberfeldy Cut Your Wolf Loose whisky were created. Of these, 23 bottles were signed by Blackford and are available alongside a custom print by the artist.
Future bottles are also being planned, as the venue aims to ‘prod at the category’s boundaries’ to attract a more ‘eclectic mix of people’ to the whisky industry.
It said it will also work to continue championing artists and distilleries from around the world.
Last year, Bacardi-owned Aberfeldy partnered with charity the Bee Conservancy to launch a signature cocktail in the on-trade.
Bacardi also appointed a new global malts ambassador to look after its single malt Scotch whisky portfolio: Matthew Cordiner.
