06 September, 2021

Aber Falls has released its 2021 single malt bottling, the Welsh distillery’s second single malt following its inaugural release in May.

The three-year-old expression 2021 expression includes a mix of Oloroso sherry casks, PX sherry casks, Bourbon casks, and Virgin Oak casks.

“The perfect whisky is made up of exceptional ingredients, ideal conditions and well-considered casks made of top-quality wood,” said Dr Kirstie McCallum, master blender at Aber Falls.

“In particular, the two sherry casks used for this Single Malt have provided a very enjoyable flavour that we’re incredibly proud of.”

Bottled at 40% abv, the single malt is produced using Welsh malted barley and rock-filtered water taken from the Aber Falls waterfall in North Wales. It gives an aroma of sweet fruits with a hint of clove and delivers a palate with sweet sherry notes, dark chocolate and espresso.

“We’re a distillery that proudly produces 100% Welsh whisky, capturing the Welsh craft and heritage in every bottle,” said James Wright, managing director at Aber Falls Whisky Distillery.

“As a result, our products are extremely sustainable, enabling us to benefit Wales at every stage of production, including returning any waste ingredients to local farms for use as fertiliser or cattle feed.

The 2021 release of the Single Malt Welsh Whisky is available in Tesco stores across Wales, through the online retailer Master of Malt, and direct from the Aber Falls website. A 70cl bottle and has an rrp of £26.
