The first batch didn’t hang around long so you might have to hurry to get a bottle of Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #2.</b></p> <p>One of the members of the new English Whisky Guild is the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, located by the coast not far from York. It <span style="font-weight: 400;">began distilling in 2016 and</span><a href="https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/post/introducing-the-spirit-of-yorkshire-whisky-distillery.aspx"> w<span style="font-weight: 400;">e visited in 2017</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> and were very impressed by the quality of the set-up and the embryonic whiskies. In 2019, the first release arrived at MoM Towers and quickly vanished off the shelves. It was a similar story with the distillery’s first peated release. Whoosh, it was gone! Now the second batch is here. According to co-founder David Thompson: “</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Our customers have been asking for the return of our Peated Finish ever since the release of Batch #1 sold out, and we’re delighted to be able to say that it’s back.” </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">But before we look at it, first a little recap of the Spirit of Yorkshire story.  </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The distillery was founded by farmer and brewer Tom Mellor from</span><a href="https://www.woldtopbrewery.co.uk/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Wold Top Brewery</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> in North Yorkshire and business partner David Thompson, with a little help from the late Jim Swan. It’s a true farm to glass set-up with all the barley used coming from Mellor’s farm around Hunmanby, south of Scarborough. The barley goes to Bridlington for malting before going to Wold Top for mashing and fermentation. This sort of set-up, though not allowed under</span><a href="https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/post/unusual-scotch-ahoy-swa-widens-permissible-cask-types.aspx"><span style="font-weight: 400;"> SWA</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> rules, is common in the burgeoning English whisky category. I mean, if you own a brewery already, then why not do the brewing there?</span></p> <div id="attachment_26017" style="width: 780px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-large wp-image-26017" src="https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/David-Thompson-and-Tom-Mellor-with-Filey-Bay-r-1024x683.jpg" alt="Filey Bay" width="770" height="514" srcset="https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/David-Thompson-and-Tom-Mellor-with-Filey-Bay-r-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/David-Thompson-and-Tom-Mellor-with-Filey-Bay-r-300x200.jpg 300w, https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/David-Thompson-and-Tom-Mellor-with-Filey-Bay-r-768x512.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 770px) 100vw, 770px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">David Thompson and Tom Mellor next to their innovative still set-up</p></div> <h5><b>Flexible set-up</b></h5> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The still arrangement would also cause some head scratching at the SWA. There’s a 5,000 litre wash still with a boil ball and a 3,500 lantern-shaped spirit, made by</span><a href="https://forsyths.com/"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Forsyths of Rothes</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;">. So far so conventional, but at the pull of a lever, the spirit vapour can be sent through a four plate column for further distillation. The distillery can thus create two kinds of single malt, a heavier pot still spirit and a lighter column still distillate. David Thompson commented: “Our production allows us to create two different spirit styles, using a pot and column still configuration to create a flavour profile that is unlike any other malt whisky.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The warehouse inventory mainly consists of ex-bourbon barrels. But alongside a few sherry casks there&#8217;s some STR (shaved, toasted and recharred) wine barrels, this is a</span><a href="https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/post/join-us-on-our-penderyn-adventure.aspx"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">Jim Swan distillery</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> after all, and some casks that previously held</span><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vino_de_naranja"> <span style="font-weight: 400;">vino de naranja</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> (wine made from oranges, an Andalusian speciality.) We can’t wait to try that release. Thompson said: “</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">As a distillery, we are passionate about pushing the boundaries of whisky making, which is why we are always experimenting with different casks to finish our whisky in.” </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">And they also have some casks that previously held peated whisky. </span></p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-45850" src="https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/SoY_JUNE2022-38-1-1024x683.jpg" alt="Filey Bay peated batch 2" width="770" height="514" srcset="https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/SoY_JUNE2022-38-1-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/SoY_JUNE2022-38-1-300x200.jpg 300w, https://www.masterofmalt.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/SoY_JUNE2022-38-1-768x512.jpg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 770px) 100vw, 770px" /></p> <h5><b>Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #2 is here</b></h5> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This second peated release is made from a combination of the two distillation methods aged in ex-bourbon barrels and then finished in those smoky casks. Whisky director Jim Clark explained: “</span><span style="font-weight: 400;">We really feel that Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #2 is the perfect whisky for both those who love peated whiskies and those who are less familiar with them. Its subtle smokiness is prominent enough to make an impact but gentle enough not to overpower our house style. Our finishes are all about balance, and this bottling is the perfect example of that.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This second release is not only a little older and deeper in flavour than the first peated release. Just as with the first release it’s bottled at 46% ABV with no colouring or chill filtration. We’ll see how quickly it sells out. </span></p> <p><b>Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #2 is  available from Master of Malt.

A Secret Islay! And triple distilled! After 4 years on a classic bourbon cask, this Dutch malt got an 18-month finish on a cask on which an Islay whisky previously matured.</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/iRuIYE5_UIY" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://youtu.be/iRuIYE5_UIY</a></p> Bollinger Group acquires Sancerre estate Hubert Brochard http://www.drinksint.com/news/fullstory.php/aid/10074/Bollinger_Group_acquires_Sancerre_estate_Hubert_Brochard.html Drinks International - The global choice for drinks buyers urn:uuid:ac88bf8d-7591-14de-675c-c516722caa1b Mon, 04 Jul 2022 05:00:00 +0100 Bollinger Group, in addition to five other estates in France and the US, has acquired the Sancerre historic estate, Hubert Brochard.

The prestigious certification sets the global benchmark for site-based water stewardship and ensures precious water resources are managed responsibly. We now have twelve distilleries recognised with the AWS standard reflecting our commitment to the environments in which we work.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The distillery, in Fife Scotland, contributes single grain whisky to some of our much-loved Scotch brands including Johnnie Walker, and produces Smirnoff, Gordon’s and Tanqueray. Our efforts to reduce reliance on fossil fuels in our distilling business began at Cameronbridge in 2008 with the investment of £65m in a state-of-the art bio-energy and water treatment plant – using the co-products of distillation to power the distillery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Cameronbridge is fed by boreholes along the River Leven, a 26km long river that flows through Fife, and the water is purified on site before use, and used cooling water is then released back into the river. Previously the communities around Fife depended on the River Leven to help run the mills and factories which impacted the river health with blockages to fish migration and physical river modifications. We’ve been a part of the Leven Programme since it began in 2018 to help restore the river in line with our commitment to being water stewards as we believe collaboration is at the heart of this. We’re helping to shape future projects such as natural flood management, wildlife corridors and wellbeing provisions for the community.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-10 col-md-offset-1 col-lg-8 col-lg-offset-2"> <div class="row row-10"> <div class="module-space"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-12"> <div class="image-container"><img loading="lazy" class="blur-up lazyloaded aligncenter" src="https://www.diageo.com/PR1346/aws/media/14293/river-leven-aws-award.jpg" width="553" height="415" data-src="/PR1346/aws/media/14293/river-leven-aws-award.jpg" /></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="module-space columns-module-space"> <div class="col-xs-12 col-md-10 col-md-offset-1 col-lg-8 col-lg-offset-2"> <div class="text-container"> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Ewan Andrew, Chief Sustainability Officer, said:</strong><strong> </strong>“<em>Water is a crucial ingredient to our products and we work hard to protect such a precious natural resource. Responsible water use is vital for both our business and for our communities and so I am delighted that our Cameronbridge Distillery has received this accreditation.”</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The AWS Standard is the international standard for responsible water use and encompasses social, cultural and environmental criteria, including engagement with local communities. The Standard recognises continual improvement and commitment to ongoing action in response to the ever-changing nature of water and climate-related threats.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><strong>Adrian Sym, Chief Executive Officer of Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) said: </strong><em>“Diageo continues to show great leadership in water stewardship through the AWS certification of their Cameronbridge distillery. Water stewardship offers a collaborative and multi-stakeholder approach that involves not only managing a site’s direct water impacts, but also working with others in the catchment they rely on to address shared water risks and challenges. Businesses are reliant on the natural ecosystems that surround them; Diageo recognises this and continues to set an example for the beverage industry.”</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Our commitment to water is outlined in Society 2030: Spirit of Progress which you can find out more about <a href="https://www.diageo.com/en/society-2030/pioneer-grain-to-glass-sustainability/preserve-water-for-life/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">here</a>.

The whisky received an extraordinary response from the Distillery’s loyal followers and supporters, selling out in just a few hours.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This new release of Wire Works Whisky Small Batch is a recognisable sibling to the inaugural spirit, however with a lower ABV of 46.2%.  A lightly-peated single malt whisky from a small batch vatting of American and French oak casks, the spirit has been fully matured in predominantly STR casks (re-conditioned casks that have been shaved, toasted and re-charred) with a significant element of ex-bourbon. The use of these casks compliment the White Peak house style of fruit forward new make.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The resulting spirit is a complex, approachable single malt whisky with sweet popcorn, and orchard fruits on the nose, brandy baskets, banana and sandalwood on the palate, and a sweet vanilla finish, with a touch of nutmeg.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">White Peak Distillery was founded in 2016 by husband-and-wife team Max &amp; Claire Vaughan &#8211; both originally from Derbyshire – and continues to go from strength to strength, having won awards not only for its whisky but also for its Distillery visitor experiences.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Max Vaughan, Co-founder of White Peak Distillery said: “We were incredibly humbled by the fantastic reaction to our first release of Wire Works Whisky in February and would like to say a big thank you to our various communities of supporters.  Our first bottling sold out much more quickly than we could have ever anticipated, so we’re delighted to be releasing another small batch bottling and we’re looking forward to the exciting plans we have for the rest of 2022 and beyond.”</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Just over 4,300 bottles of Wire Works Whisky Small Batch will be released in total and will be available on 23<sup>rd</sup> June via the <a href="https://www.whitepeakdistillery.co.uk/shop/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">White Peak Distillery online shop</a> and in-person from the Distillery’s shop from 24<sup>th</sup> June, RRP: £60 (70cl).

The Distillery’s woodland home on the banks of the River Derwent has a long history of innovation and forms part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Wire Works Whisky celebrates its rich homeland and the brewing heritage for which the region is so renowned. Every aspect of production and maturation is done onsite at the Distillery to ensure that the unique location and environment can play their part in the provenance of the final spirit.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The lightly-peated single malt whisky has been created using a combination of English un-peated and peated malted barley. A flavour-focused four-day fermentation uses a unique yeast Blend incorporating live yeast sourced from a local Peak District brewery.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The Distillery’s traditional, bespoke copper pot stills have been hand-built by McMillan and are run slowly to help produce the desired flavour profile. The final spirit is matured in a variety of carefully selected first fill oak casks, including ex-bourbon, virgin and STR (re-conditioned casks that have been shaved, toasted and re-charred), adding the final rich flavours to the whisky.</p> COMPASS BOX CANVAS LIMITED EDITION – Tyndrum Whisky News https://www.whiskyintelligence.com/2022/07/compass-box-canvas-limited-edition-tyndrum-whisky-news/ WhiskyIntelligence.com urn:uuid:a77f680b-07c3-be03-2324-57da55e0e405 Sat, 02 Jul 2022 08:04:32 +0100 COMPASS BOX CANVAS LIMITED EDITION A fantastic Compass Box release, experimental barrels, (casks seasoned with Vino Naranja &#8211; Spanish fortified wine infused with Orange Peel), be prepared to refill your glass.

I do like my earlier batch a bit more, but there is nothing to dislike in this batch. It&#8217;s a soft, easy sipper with an interestingly heavy banana note. It gets more oaky and spiced as it opens, but never becomes a heavily oaked or spiced bourbon. It stays soft and a bit fruity.</p> <p>On the whole, this Jefferson&#8217;s Ocean Voyage 24 comes through as a slightly above average bourbon. There&#8217;s nothing wrong with it, it&#8217;s tasty, worth at least a drink and great to mix with, but there isn&#8217;t a ton of depth to it so it ends up being on the lighter side overall.</p> <p><strong>SCORE: 3/5</strong> (above average, worth checking out ~ B- | 80-82)</p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;">*Disclosure:</span> The bottle for this bourbon review was graciously sent to me by the company without obligation.

The suggested retail price (per 750-ml. bottle) and ABV are as follows: Barbados 2007 — $200, 58% ABV; Barbados 2000 — $300, 47.8% ABV; Barbados 1986 — $1,500.00, 55.1% ABV.</p> <p>Plantation Rum undergoes a double aging process that dates back to the 18th century, the company says. First, the rums mature in bourbon barrels in the tropics. Then they cross the ocean by boat for 30 to 40 days, meant to optimize the interaction between the cane spirit and the oak wood. The final ageing takes place in cognac barrels in the continental climate of Southwest France. </p> <p>While traversing the ocean, the rum loses its edge and becomes rounder, the company says, while levels of esters and aromatic compounds increase, bringing forward fruity and spicy notes.</p>The post <a href="https://beveragedynamics.com/2022/07/01/plantation-rum-extreme-collection-no-5-barbados/">Plantation Rum Introduces Extreme Collection No. 5</a> first appeared on <a href="https://beveragedynamics.com">Beverage Dynamics</a>.

At times this change can present drinkers with entirely new perspectives and directions. A revitalisation of a product or brand. A reaffirmation or repositioning of a distillery&rsquo;s house style. A recognition that standing still is a sure-fire method for achieving irrelevance. And there are other times when, regardless of the reasons for the conclusion, the response from the community will simply be a sense of sadness that something beloved will no longer be available. Whilst certain quarters of enthusiasts will have you believe that never-changing, monolithic, perceived high quality (and 90&rsquo;s perma-low pricing) is possible. It is not.

So far, they have created 32 unique batches of their signature bourbon, all bottled at cask strength. Each release is its own different expression, as they are drawn from different distilleries, and then matured, blended and bottled at varying proofs.</p> <p>As for Barrell Bourbon Batch 32, I got bottle number 14,687. One lot for this batch is a mix of 5 and 6-year-old barrels, and the second is a mix of 6, 7 and 10-year-old barrels. The bourbon for those two lots was sourced from three different states: Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana. Batch 32 was botted (as always) at cask strength, this time 115.34 proof/57.67% ABV.</p> <p><strong>The Bourbon</strong><br /> The color here is tawny, and the nose starts off light then dives deep into some fruity bourbon notes of orange peel and cherry. Those fruity aromas then fade into more traditional notes of charred oak, vanilla, brown sugar, and subtle hints of sawdust and buttered popcorn. Upon taking my first sip, I noticed a high level of intensity on the palate. Tasting on the younger side, I was able to detect notes of cinnamon, toasted marshmallow, oak, vanilla, ginger, and a slight cherry note. The finish is long and warming with fading sweetness but subtle lingering notes of cherry, oak, and vanilla.</p> <p><strong>The Price<br /> </strong>The DSRP for Barrell Bourbon Batch 32 is $85.</p> <p><a class="a2a_button_facebook" href="https://www.addtoany.com/add_to/facebook?linkurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwhiskeyreviewer.com%2F2022%2F07%2Fbarrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022%2F&amp;linkname=Barrell%20Bourbon%20Batch%20032%20Review" title="Facebook" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter" href="https://www.addtoany.com/add_to/twitter?linkurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwhiskeyreviewer.com%2F2022%2F07%2Fbarrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022%2F&amp;linkname=Barrell%20Bourbon%20Batch%20032%20Review" title="Twitter" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank"></a><a class="a2a_button_email" href="https://www.addtoany.com/add_to/email?linkurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwhiskeyreviewer.com%2F2022%2F07%2Fbarrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022%2F&amp;linkname=Barrell%20Bourbon%20Batch%20032%20Review" title="Email" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank"></a><a class="a2a_button_reddit" href="https://www.addtoany.com/add_to/reddit?linkurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwhiskeyreviewer.com%2F2022%2F07%2Fbarrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022%2F&amp;linkname=Barrell%20Bourbon%20Batch%20032%20Review" title="Reddit" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank"></a><a class="a2a_button_pinterest" href="https://www.addtoany.com/add_to/pinterest?linkurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwhiskeyreviewer.com%2F2022%2F07%2Fbarrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022%2F&amp;linkname=Barrell%20Bourbon%20Batch%20032%20Review" title="Pinterest" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank"></a><a class="a2a_button_linkedin" href="https://www.addtoany.com/add_to/linkedin?linkurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwhiskeyreviewer.com%2F2022%2F07%2Fbarrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022%2F&amp;linkname=Barrell%20Bourbon%20Batch%20032%20Review" title="LinkedIn" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank"></a><a class="a2a_dd addtoany_share_save addtoany_share" href="https://www.addtoany.com/share#url=https%3A%2F%2Fwhiskeyreviewer.com%2F2022%2F07%2Fbarrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022%2F&#038;title=Barrell%20Bourbon%20Batch%20032%20Review" data-a2a-url="https://whiskeyreviewer.com/2022/07/barrell-bourbon-batch-032-review-063022/" data-a2a-title="Barrell Bourbon Batch 032 Review"></a></p>
