Limited to just 1,785 bottles, this Summer Release from Daftmill was distilled in 2009 and is the first combination of sherry and bourbon casks from the distillery. Comprising one first fill Oloroso butt and three first fill ex-bourbon casks, this expression was bottled in 2020 at a strength of 46% abv.
The nose has fresh mango, cola cubes, dried figs and cigar boxes. The palate brings spicy notes of clootie dumpling and lemon zest with toffee and Fraserburgh butteries. The finish showcases the sherry cask influence with waves of fresh fiery gingerbread lingering.
To be in with a chance to gain access to purchasing one of these limited bottles we will be running a ballot. This ballot closes at midnight on Sunday 11th April.

Summer Release 2009
70cl / 46% abv
(Restricted to 1 per customer)
What makes Daftmill unique is the traditional nature of the production schedule – it is a true farm distillery. All the barley used for production is farmed by Francis Cuthbert on the estate (only one other distillery in Scotland, Ballindalloch Distillery, uses 100% single estate barley and this won’t be released for at least six years). The whisky is all distilled by Francis in the farm off-season; two months in summer and two month in winter – this is a very traditional way of running a distillery that hasn’t been seen in Scotland since the 1800s.
