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.
Cask numbers #046,047, 050, 051 and 056/2010 was filled in 2010. The barley used was harvested from the farm's South fields. This optic barley was then stored on the farm until it was malted in Alloa.
The release was reserved for The Daftmill Distillery (unofficial fans group).
