GlenWyvis Single Malt Whisky Batch 02/18

Batch 02/18

The second release from our 2018 vintage, and our first ‘major’ bottling.

Half-tonne mashes of entirely local Concerto barley were fermented for an average of 96 hours before being distilled in our squat 2500L wash still and 1700L spirit still. An uncompromising hearts cut was then filled into a variety of wood: Tennessee Whiskey barrels from America add complex sweetness, Oloroso hogsheads from Spain bring rich fruit and refilled Scotch whisky hogsheads highlight the fragrant, spicy character of our unique new make.

Available for purchase 29th June 2022
