Spencerfield Spirit Company has today (30 January 2014) announced the launch of their new whisky, an intricate blended malt – The Feathery. This crafted whisky will be available in John Lewis and other leading independent UK retailers from February 2014.
This premium malt whisky has been entirely matured in first class sherry wood and has been bottled 40%. This beautiful spirit is deep golden brown. The initial impression on nosing and tasting are dry, nutty sherry notes, a touch of creamy vanilla and a hint of ginger, with an overall finish that can only be described as long satisfying and well rounded.
Alex Nicol, Managing Director at Spencerfield Spirit, worked closely with Stranger and Stranger Design Agency to create the fantastic period packaging. Alex commented: ‘The Feathery is the first expression of an ancient artisanal range we are developing celebrating original Scottish craftsmanship. The whisky is like the original golf ball – lovingly handcrafted’.
