With a name like Firkin Whisky, you would expect us to be different. We are quite unlike anybody else or any other independent bottler because we take a period of up to 2 years during which we condition each of our single malt whiskies in our lovely custom ‘double oak’ casks, which take each of our selected distilleries to a new level – pure nectar!
Miners dig for years to discover a gem like this. Diamonds are made under pressure, but this rarity lets the tantalising, tingling Teaninich, embrace its Tawny Port partner.
Together the two sparkle & shine, revealing fresh apples with crisp malt & layers of luscious fruit & berries. Facets of initial rich berries reflect the sheen of cereal oak & a hint of bitter sweet fruit. A dram worth digging for!
Firkin Rare Indeed!
For those unaware, Mike Collings is a giant in the whisky industry. During his time with Diageo (world largest spirits business) he was the mind behind the famous Johnny Walker Blue plus a plethora of whiskies that are almost ubiquitous in any bottle shop around the world. In other words, Mike has been crafting ‘household name’ whiskies for the worlds largest brands for over 40 years.
Mike Collings could have retired with an incredible track record in whisky. He had created Johnnie Walker Blue & Green Labels, The Classic Malts, Rare Malts, Distillers Edition, Flora & Fauna series, Cardhu and Royal Lochnagar. That’s pretty Firkin good as far as CVs go.
Mike’s been working in whisky for 40 years. You couldn’t blame him for packing it in and putting his feet up. That would have been the sensible thing to do. But Mike is many things. Sensible isn’t one of them. Mike stirs the pot. He thinks about things differently and always asks: ‘what if …’?
So, he found himself enjoying a few drams in a Tokyo bar thinking: What if I created a whisky that was unique on the single cask single malt market?
So he did. And it’s Firkin awesome whisky.
