Each exceptional cask was selected to showcase Bimberís award-winning single malt spirit with the unique personalities derived from a variety of different cask types including: ex-bourbon; Pedro Ximenez finished ex-bourbon; Madeira finished ex-bourbon; ruby port and ex-rye whiskey casks.

Bimberís 2021 Country Collection continues the worldwide expansion of the London-based distillery and recognises the flourishing demand for the craft producerís single malt whiskies. Fourteen expressions will be released over the summer with the remaining ten releases following later in the year.

Each of the Country Collection Editions were crafted to Bimberís exacting standards. The spirit was produced from the distilleryís single farm barley and malted on a dedicated floor at Warminster Maltings before being fermented for seven days in bespoke, on-site constructed American oak washbacks. Distillation took place in Bimberís customised stills, which possess an increased copper surface area, resulting in a light and fruity, but layered new make spirit.

Speaking of the upcoming release of the 2021 Collection, Bimber Distillery spokesperson Matt McKay said: ďEach expression within our 2021 Country Collection celebrates the individuality of our growing selection of cask styles. Our exploration of the flavour possibilities of cask experimentation reflects how our traditional processes can be employed to produce impactful and delightfully flavourful results from a wide variety of wood types. As the distillery grows, we are excited to be able to share these exceptional single cask releases with an ever-widening number of worldwide Bimber drinkers."
