Daftmill 2006 Single Bourbon Cask #21 / UK
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.
The chariot barely used to distil this was harvested from the farm's Dam Park and Curling Pond fields on 31st October 2004. It was some of the last to be malted by their neighbours, Robert Kilgour & Co before their closure.
Cask #21 was a first fill bourbon barrel, filled on 12th July 2006 and bottled in 2019.
One of 234 bottles.
