About The Cotswold Distilling Company - FOUNDER'S CHOICE SINGLE MALT WHISKY
Cotswolds Founder's Choice Single Malt Whisky is made with 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley and aged exclusively in Dan's (the founder of Cotswolds Distillery) favorite casks: shaved, toasted and re-charred American oak red wine barriques.
These casks are uniquely active. They give a rich and intense maturation to Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky offering toffee, oak and red fruits notes and beautiful, deep amber colour.
Awarded 'Best English Single Malt' at the World Whiskies Awards 2019.
Bottle size: 70cl. All bottles come with a presentation box, packed separately to avoid damage in transit.
Nose: Dry hay and cut wood, with dark chocolate and dried figs, and plums in sweet syrup.
Palate: Warming cereal and toast notes, with lots of fresh red fruits and butterscotch.
Finish: Hints of spicy oak, lots of dried fruit and a lingering nutty, dry note.
About The Cotswold Distilling Company
Everything we make at the Cotswolds Distillery is about quality and flavour above all else.
What links our diverse products is our commitment to quality and the search for something deliciously different.
Whisky production is at the heart of everything we do at the distillery. Our flagship Cotswolds Single Malt is a rich, fruity and sippable whisky. It has a balance and depth of flavour that belies its young age, due to the exceptional attention to detail in our distilling and our use of the finest oak casks for maturation.
We recently launched our cask strength release single malt, Founder's Choice, aged exclusively in our founder Dan's favourite casks: shaved, toasted and re-charred American Oak red wine barriques. These uniquely active casks give a rich and intense maturation to the distillery's fruity spirit, offering toffee, oak and red fruits, and beautiful, deep colour.
Distilled with nine carefully considered botanicals, our Cotswolds Dry Gin is a London Dry with an aromatic twist. We distil juniper, coriander seed, angelica root, local lavender, bay leaf, hand-peeled fresh lime and pink grapefruit zest, cardamom and black peppercorn in our copper pot still, resulting in a rich and robust, award-winning gin.
We do not remove the essential oils in our gin as these create a rich flavour and mouthfeel. As a result, our gin forms a unique pearlescent cloud when ice or tonic is added, and it tastes delicious!
SMALL BATCH RELEASES
Not often content with sitting still, we have also produced a range of small-batch spirits and liqueurs. Many of these are seasonal runs, available only in the distillery shop, but we have some long-standing favourites too.

Move over Scotch, this English Whisky is a winner, literally. I was really surprised just how good this Founders Choice SM whisky is. Half the bottle already polished off.
