Bimber Distillery unveils new single cask whiskies.

Londonís Bimber Distillery today announced the upcoming release of seven new expressions including the follow-up to the popular Bimber Re-charred Oak Casks  Small Batch single malt.

The Ex-bourbon Oak Casks single malt has been crafted from a vatting of American Oak ex-bourbon casks laid down in 2016 Ė Bimberís first year of production.

The initial batch (001) is bottled at 51.8% ABV, limited to 1948 bottles and will be available directly from the distilleryís online shop for £65.

Also being released on the 9th June are a selection of six cask strength, single cask releases, with three produced for the UK and three sister casks available for export markets.

The UK releases will be available directly from Bimberís online web shop on the 9th June. The export releases will be available via specialist retailers in: Belgium; Denmark; France; Germany; Italy; Netherlands; Poland; Singapore and Taiwan.

Each of the new expressions 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, which results in a light, fruit-forward, layered new make spirit.

Speaking of the new releases, the Bimber Founder and Master Distiller said: "Whilst the last few months have presented challenges to the distillery and my team, it is a great pleasure to unveil our latest English single malt whiskies. Our newest small batch release is very much the successor to our Re-charred Oak Casks single malt Ė it skilfully demonstrates how ex-bourbon wood perfectly complements the underlying character of our accessible fruit-forward spirit."

He added "Alongside our newest small batch release, weíre excited to be offering a range of single cask expressions, all of which celebrate and showcase a different aspect of our spiritís versatile style."

You will find the Bimber whisky range available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
