Daftmill 2006 Summer Batch Release 2018

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. 

This is the distillery's second ever offering, a 2006 single vintage bottling of 9 casks. The chariot barley used was harvested on the farm's Dam Park and Curling Pond fields on 31st August 2004. It was malted in Fife by Robert Kilgour & Co, some the last before their business closed.

The spirit matured for nearly 12 years in ex-bourbon casks from Heaven Hill Bernheim distillery in Louisville, Kentucky.

One of 1665 bottles.
