Description

An exclusive partnership between the London distillery and department store Selfridges. This Bimber was made from single farm barley (which was malted at Westminster Maltings) and matured in four 1st fill American Oak Ex-bourbon casks. It was then finished in a 2010 single Oloroso sherry butt from hugely renowned Spanish sherry producer González Byass. Bottled in June 2020 at 51.5% ABV.

Only 937 bottles were produced from Cask #544-7/67. Each tube which cases the bottles has artwork from the Dutch artist and sculptor Eelke van Willegen.

Gonzalez Byass Oloroso 2010 sherry: 750ml, 18%. The renowned Gonzalez Byass one of the most celebrated Bodegas across Spain. This Oloroso 2010 is stunning and very popular.  It is said to be short and dry, with notes of almond, plum and figs. Pair with game, cheese and nuts to bring out its natural, fruity undertones.
