Master of Malt launches yesteryear expression

17 October, 2011

Online spirits merchant Master of Malt has extended its line of yesteryear spirit-based expressions with the launch of Proprietary Barley Spirit Drink.

The 70cl bottles are priced at £49.95 and carry an abv of 54.55%.

According to the retailer, its latest small batch release – which was created by Professor Cornelius Ampleforth - is based on a “centuries-old” technique of treating whisky casks with Paxarette - a Spanish syrup made from boiling down grape juice and sherry.

For Proprietary Barley Spirit Drink, Ampleforth reduced down a Pedro Ximenez dessert sherry until it resembled black treacle, then mixed it with a 10 year old, sherry cask-matured Speyside single malt whisky.

The result, according to Master of Malt, is an “unctuously sweet, syrupy concoction that is rather reminiscent of Christmas pudding, laden with brandy butter”.
