SINGLE ESTATE TUSMORE WHISKEY BARREL FROM £6,000 + VAT
Matured in ex-bourbon casks producing Tusmore Single Malt, Single Estate Whiskey.
Our whiskey is truly a story of ‘field to barrel’ which begins with the barley fields at the Tusmore Estate, surrounded by our 40 beehives on the privately owned, 3,000 acre Estate, in Oxfordshire. Once harvested, this barley is malted before being transferred to our partner distillery in Ireland, where the malted barley is milled, mashed and fermented under the supervision of our Master Distiller. Using his palate and experience to cut the spirit precisely during distillation ensuring the high quality resulting in our award-winning new make spirit.
Kilkenny, the location of Ballykeefe Distillery, is known as the birthplace of Irish Whiskey. It was here that the first record of whiskey production was recorded in 1324 in the Red Book of Ossory, a medieval manuscript that states even the black death didn’t stop the distilling.
Our New Make Spirit is created using the traditional Irish, triple copper pot still method, being recognised for creating a deliciously smooth and clean spirit. With an interest in the environment, the pot ale and the distillery grain that is left over after the production of the spirit is fed to the cattle at Ballykeefe Farm on the distillery site, thus reducing waste. Finally, the spirit is returned to our Oxfordshire distillery for maturation.
All our casks are bespoke and will follow an individual path of maturation and therefore each offers a unique example of Tusmore Single Malt whiskey. Under the watchful eye of our Master Distiller, each cask is matured on the country estate. After three years, the spirit officially is regarded as whiskey and ready to be enjoyed or can be stored for longer which will add further depth and complexity. We recommend storage of at least five years for it to be sampled at its best.
We are in the process of installing an Asset Tracking system. Your barrel will be tagged with a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) location device which will allow us to track the position of your barrel at all times, signal alerts should your barrel move or leave the premises. This system will be integrated with our software and combined with our unique traceability system.
