Daftmill is a farm distillery, owned and run by the Cuthbert family, who grow all of the barley used in their whisky on-site. The distillery is only operational during the farm's quiet periods in mid-summer and mid-winter, sometimes producing as few as 100 casks per year. The distillery was granted its license in 2005, but not in a hurry to rush out their product, it was 2018 before their inaugural release. This patience and dedication to their craft has won the distillery an army of passionate fans, among collectors and connoisseurs alike.
This is the distillery's third ever offering from its inaugural release year, a 2006 single vintage bottling of 6 casks. The spirit matured for nearly 12 years in ex-bourbon casks from Heaven Hill Bernheim distillery in Louisville, Kentucky.
The UK batch consists of 1625 bottles, drawn from casks #080/2006 through #085/2006.
An export batch was also produced from a different set of 6 casks.
