Durham Cask Aged Gin embraces the art of cask aging, a technique most commonly used in the production of whisky, to create a richness of colour not usually associated with gin. The cask aging process also adds a fourth level of flavour to Durham Gin’s unique combination of botanicals.
Each year we create a unique blend of cask aged, this year’s edition sees our signature Durham Gin rested in the casks for almost 18 months with the 3 casks producing just over 1000 bottles.
This year’s blend uses two complementary types of aged oak casks, American Bourbon and Spanish Oloroso Sherry; this combination reveals fruity and honeyed complexity with subtle vanilla and citrus zest top notes. The American Bourbon cask itself offers a vanilla bean, caramel and oak finish, while the Spanish Oloroso offers spicy sweet fruit with honey and orange peel. The combination just works so well and tastes really, very special.
