"THERE CAN BE NO TRUE INNOVATION, WITHOUT A DASH OF MADNESS"

This limited-edition release was initially matured in traditional oak ex-bourbon casks, then finished in 50 litre Mulberry wood casks. This calculated risk yields the rewards of the Mulberry’s unusual wood structure.

What is Mulberry wood?

Botanical Name: Morus alba

Origin: Asia

Growing Conditions: Warm climates and in elevations up to 4,000 metres.

Common uses: Best known for its leaves which are used in the production of silk. Mulberry leaves are also used in traditional Chinese medicines and for tea in Korea. While the fruit can be used to make wine.

The Timber: Hard, durable, straight grained and ring porous.

Cooperage: Kádár, Hungary.

Cask Size: 50 litre quarter casks.

Finishing time: Initially matured in traditional Bourbon Oak barrels, the whiskey was then transferred to the 50 litre Mulberry casks. Fast maturing, given the size of cask and the structure of the wood having relatively low density & high porosity, the whiskey spent between 3 & 8 months finishing in the unusual Mulberry casks to give a balanced final whiskey.
