Broken Bones upgrades production

Slovenia-based Broken Bones Distillery will eventually be able to increase its whisky output by five times with its new equipment.

Broken Bones Distillery Slovenia
The Slovenian brand was founded in 2012

The brand has produced 100 bottles each of peated and unpeated single malt every year since its first batch in 2020.

In 2023, Broken Bones rented a new warehouse in which it will store barrels of ageing spirit.

The company has now invested in a new whisky still, a mash tun and a fermenter, which will allow it to produce nearly 20,000 bottles per year by 2027. In 2024, it will produce 1,000 bottles of each of its whiskies.

The brand combines ‘a strong Slovenian influence with the Scottish tradition of whisky making’, using Slovenian water and malt to create the spirit, which is aged in Slovenian sessile oak barrels.

Maturation also takes place in American oak, while its peated expression is aged in barrels from Islay.

Broken Bones Whisky 2023 was aged for three years and has an ABV of 46%. It retails for RRP €155 (US$168) for a 700ml bottle.

Broken Bones Peated Whisky 2023 was aged for six years and has an ABV of 46%. It also retails for RRP €155 (US$168) for a 700ml bottle. Only 35 bottles were produced.

As well as its two single malts, Broken Bones also creates a range of gins, including a London Dry, an Old Tom and a sloe gin.
