About this whisky

Our Ex-Oloroso Sherry whisky is distilled in a beautiful copper still, aged in a single Ex-Oloroso sherry cask and cut with pure Dartmoor spring water

With sweet sherry, hazelnut, coconut, marzipan and sultanas all playing out on the palate, followed by hints of gingerbread and treacle, this most distinctive of single malt whiskies will make for a special toast that lives long in the memory.

This barrel comes from the Jerez region in Spain where sherry is produced. These casks are some of the most exclusive and expensive we purchase because of the beautifully sweet and rich flavours they impart on whisky.

Whereas most sherry expressions are only finished in sherry casks, sitting for most of their maturation in lesser casks, we age our Ex-Oloroso Sherry whisky in Oloroso sherry casks from start to finish, allowing the spirit the time it needs to take on its golden colour, inviting sherry aromas and diverse flavour notes.

Oloroso sherry cask whisky, handcrafted on the edge of Dartmoor

Our whisky is true produce of Devon. Our single cask, single malt whisky is made with local barley, cut with pure Dartmoor spring water and distilled in the old Bovey Tracey Town Hall on the edge of Dartmoor. The local climate and soil make for the very best, high-quality barley. Our barley is grown in the rugged depths of Dartmoor by Devonian farmer Tim Cox at Preston Farm.

When the barley is ripe and golden, it is harvested and sent to be malted at Warminster Maltings. It is Britain’s oldest working malting house and uses traditional techniques such as germination floors and good old-fashioned manpower to malt barley fit for very fine single malt whisky.

Our beer wash is brewed by local cask ale producers to our original recipe, specified by our Master Distiller, Frank McHardy. The primary distillation process takes place in our beautiful copper still, sourced from the Cognac region of France.

The spirit is then transferred into barrels for maturation. We carefully source our casks from around the globe to ensure that each batch of our spirit takes on a sensational and unique flavour.

The Oloroso Sherry Cask

 

This barrel comes from the Jerez region in Spain where sherry is produced. These are some of the most exclusive and expensive barrels we purchase because of the beautifully sweet and rich flavours they impart on the whisky. These barrels are hard to come by because of the drop in production in sherry, therefore, it's rare to find a whisky that is aged purely in a Spanish sherry casks. The casks are re-coopered to be strong but still hold the wonderfully sweet flavours and aromas from their past life holding sherry.

"I'm not supposed to be drinking for the next few months but had to have a small glass of this when it turned up. This from Dartmoor Whisky Distillery is up there and it may even be the finest young whisky I've ever had!"

"Extremely pleased to receive one of the first bottles of this for my birthday - it's a really smooth whisky with a great flavour - must be the Dartmoor water!"
