Masthouse Single Malt Whisky 50cl
This Single Malt strikes the perfect balance between rich complexity and approachability
Masthouse Single Malt Whisky
Created by the Copper Rivet Distillery, in Kent - the location of the distillery has a rich tradition of innovation and craftsmanship. This area once produced world-class ships.
The story starts in 2005 when the Russell family began planning their distillery. It took much planning, but in 2015 they found the future home of Copper Rivet Distillery and the Victorian Pump House No. 5 in Chatham Maritime was purchased.
In 2016 they began distilling, but it wasn't until 2017 that they officially opened. On Friday 1st December, HRH The Princess Royal (the British Princess Anne) officially opened Copper Rivet Distillery in Chatham's Historic Docky. From that day they began selling exceptional whisky, gin and vodka.
For all of their spirits, including their whiskys only the best early harvest wheat, barley and rye are selected to be used. These are all grown within 20 miles of their home in Chatham, working with known farmers.
Their Single Malt whisky is created using 100% Kentish Belgravia Barley which has been grown at 40 Acre Field. Their mash undergoes a long fermentation process before it is pot distilled. Once this is completed, it is aged in a combination of first fill American Oak Bourbon and Virgin Oak Barrels.
This is a whisky which has the perfect balance between its rich complexity of flavour, whilst remaining approachable. It is full of flavours of crisp green apples and ginger biscuits, honts of tropical fruits and delightful floral mid-notes. Toasted oak and chocolate orange play perfectly on the palate, and finishes with white pepper and a distinct maltiness.
