THE OFFICIAL WHISKY OF ENGLAND RUGBY: SAMUEL GULLIVER & CO.
'THE FINE DROP' MARGAUX CASK FINISH ENGLISH SINGLE MALT WHISKY
(700ml, 46% ABV, Unpeated)
This fine English single malt whisky is distilled by The English Whisky Co, Norfolk and bottled exclusively for England Rugby by Samuel Gulliver & Co.
It’s a perfect marriage of the finest English ingredients; the purest water and the highest quality Concerto two-row local-grown barley which is malted at Crisps, one of the country’s oldest master maltsters since 1870. Finally, we finish the whisky in carefully selected and imported ex-Margaux red wine casks, from Bordeaux. This cask selection is a very rare pairing and we believe it to be the first English whisky to release a Margaux cask finish. The result is a shiraz rose-coloured whisky with warm and welcoming aromas of dark cherry, spicy currants and roasted aromas.
Samuel Gulliver & Co.’s 'The Fine Drop' is aged for 6 years before it is finished in ex-Margaux red wine, château-style casks in a nod to the host nation for 2023 and is a celebration of England Rugby's finest drop goal in 2003 that won the men's team the title of World Champions.
