Daftmill 2009 Single PX Cask #36 / Berry Brothers and Rudd
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 distillery was granted its license in 2005, but not in a hurry to rush out their product, it was 2018 before their inaugural release. This patience and dedication to their craft has won the distillery an army of passionate fans, among collectors and connoisseurs alike.
First-fill Pedro Ximenez sherry hogshead #36 was filled on 27th July 2009. The Optic barley used for the whisky was grown in Daftmill's south fields and harvested in the last week of August 2006. It was then stored on the farm before being malted in the summer of 2007. The cask was finally selected by a team from legendary wine & spirits merchants Berry Brothers & Rudd.
One of 321 bottled at cask strength and released in the autumn of 2020, exclusive to Berry Brothers & Rudd.
