We seek out the great distillates produced in bygone eras, using production techniques rarely seen in the modern day:
- on-site distillery floor maltings
- deep-cut highland peat
- forgotten, flavour-rich barley varieties
- longer fermentations using delicate brewer's yeasts
- direct-fired stills
- worm tubs
- well-worn refill casks
- impeccable sherry casks of a quality no longer available
If you’ve never experienced these immense old style whiskies then you’ll be amazed at the variety and depth of flavour; the way they differ to their modern counterparts is both beautiful and revelatory.
This is why The Whisky Show: Old & Rare exists.
