Kingsbarns Distillery announces the final release of limited-edition Distillery Reserve

23 March, 2022

Lowland scotch whisky distillery, Kingsbarns, has announced the release of the last remaining bottles of its 2021 Distillery Reserve.

Bottled at cask strength, the limited-edition release has been aged in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels and first fill shaved, toasted and re-charred red win barriques, hand-selected by Kingsbarns Distillery’s production director Isabella Wemyss.

“Our annual Distillery Reserve limited-release has been incredibly popular with our loyal Kingsbarns fans, showing the evolution of our spirit,” said Wemyss.

“We’re constantly experimenting and discovering the impact of our signature cask maturations on our delicate, light spirit. It’s exciting to see each release on our distillery birthday.

“For this year’s release, we’ve increased the ratio of STR casks in our signature makeup to give an indication of the ongoing maturation of our spirit. We’ve retained our light and elegant distillery character, with more spice and sticky fruit notes. There’s a real balance to it, especially at such high strength.”

Kingsbarns Distillery Reserve 2021 is available exclusively from Kingsbarns Distillery and their online shop for rrp £65.
