The brand is part of the same owner group as The Borders Distillery, which was the first distillery to open in that region since 1837, ending a whisky drought of 180 years. The Borders Distillery first started making whisky in 2018.
Blended MaltComprised of malted whisk(e)y from two or more distilleries; aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
"The whisky displays hints of toasted oak as well as something herbaceous. This is followed by a whiff of honey and vanilla, before settling into quite grainy territory. It lacks viscosity, and is almost watery. The palate moves towards sweet barley, vanilla, sugar and bitter oak with a subtle spiciness. A whiff of smoke but overall lacking in depth."
