Daftmill was granted a license to begin producing spirit in 2005, and had not bottled a single drop of that first distillate until 2018 when it produced just 629 bottles of its inaugural release.
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.
This whisky is from a single ex- Heaven Hill first fill ex bourbon cask. Barrel #39 was distilled from Optic barley from the farm's South Fields, harvested in August 2006 and malted in Alloa in summer 2007.
One of 220 bottles.
