Daftmill 2008 Summer Batch Release 2019
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 somewhat tardy Summer 2019 release, which was not actually available until much later that year. Distilled 2008 using optic barley harvested from the farm's South fields in August 2006. It was malted in Alloa in 2007.
Filled from six first-fill bourbon barrels, #56, #58, #60, #62, #64 and #66, producing 1760 bottles.
