Cotswolds Founders Choice Single Malt Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Cotswolds Founders Choice Single Malt Whisky

The Cotswolds Distillery is the brainchild of Dan Szor, a native New Yorker whose 30-year career in finance took him and his family to London, where theyd often escape the stress of city living by spending weekends in Englands Cotswolds. Classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by the British government, the Cotswolds is a designated conservation area due to their significant landscape value, and its easy to see why Dan was so quickly enamored with the rolling hills and honey-colored cottages of the region.While living in England, Dans deep-rooted passion for whisky led him on annual pilgrimages to Islay, where he fervently explored the various single malt Scotch distilleries. One day, back in the Cotswolds, Dan was staring out of a window at a neighboring barley field when he suddenly had an aha moment barley was growing all over the Cotswolds, yet no one was distilling it. Dan decided to be the first, and within just a few years he had snapped up an old barn conversion, commissioned several custom stills and begun distilling the regions very first artisanal spirits at the Cotswolds Distillery.Cotswold Distillery maintains itself as one of the only fully operational Gin/Whisky distilleries in the United Kingdom. They also produced the first whisky made entirely in the Cotswolds. They embrace the grain-to-glass philosophy at Cotswolds, hand-crafting their spirits in small batches using high-quality local barley.Emphasizing quality over cost during every step of production, Cotswold uses their very own floor maltings and incorporates long fermentation and slow distillation methods, using traditional, Forsyth copper pot stills.This cask strength release from the Cotswolds Distillery comes from Cotswold founder Dans favorite casks: shaved, toasted and re-charred American Oak red wine barriques. These distinctively active casks impart a deep rich color and intense character to the distillerys fruity spirit, delivering notes of toffee, oak and red fruits. This stunning expression earned a Gold medal at the International Wine and Spirits Competition, the World Whiskies Awards and Double Gold at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.Pick up your bottle today!
