Daftmill 2006 Single Bourbon Cask #77 / Europe - Charity Lot

Daftmill was granted a license to begin producing spirit in 2005, and had not bottled a single drop of that first distillate until 2018 when it produced just 629 bottles of its inaugural release.

Daftmill is a farm distillery, owned and run by the Cuthbert family, who grow all of the barley used in their whisky on-site. The distillery is only operational during the farm's quiet periods in mid-summer and mid-winter, sometimes producing as few as 100 casks per year. 

First fill ex-Heaven Hill bourbon barrel #77 was filled on 16th December 2006 and is a sister cask to those bottled for the 2018 Winter Batch release. This cask was bottled exclusively for retail in Europe.

One of 213 bottles.

Bottle 7 from cask #77 has been kindly donated by Daftmill distillery proprietors, Francis and Ian Cuthbert, to Mr James Aitken to help raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease Scotland (registered SC217735). All proceeds from the sale of this bottle will be donated to the charity.

In addition to auctioning this bottle, Jim will be completing a cycle ride over the Forth Road Bridge on 4th August, and an abseil down the bridge in October. If you would like to find out more about this, and donate to his cause, you can do so here:
