Scotland’s Stirling Distillery, who are. known best for their gin, has launched a series of single cask whiskies as its inaugural whisky release.
The expressions, which are being released under the name Sons Of Scotland, are both made using sourced whisky that has matured in ex-Bourbon hogsheads for eight years.
Sons of Scotland The Cashly and Sons of Scotland The Arngibbon have been named after Stirlingshire distilleries that were operational during the 18th and early 19th century.Stirling Distillery plans to add two further expressions to the label, using whiskies sourced from Lowland and Island distilleries in Scotland.
Cameron McCann, co-founder of Stirling Distillery, said: “We’re pleased and proud to be releasing whisky from the Castle Rock. What makes us especially excited about our Sons of Scotland range is the chance to start a new chapter in Stirling’s whisky history while celebrating Stirlingshire’s rich whisky-making heritage.”
The Cashly offers aromas of eucalyptus and green apple followed by flavours of butter toast, stewed apples and a gentle spice pepper. While the Arngibbon is said to have aromas of custard creams, peaches, vanilla and a hint of heather moor, followed by notes of oak and soft butter tablet on the palate.
