Born in Japan. Bred in Scotland. A fresh approach to Malt Whisky.
Firkin describe themselves as 'a tad zany and a bit mischievious' and we can see why. Founder Mike Collings has forty years experience in the whisky world and has worked on big names such as Johnnie Walker. But now he's done with being sensible and now devotes his time to making these exciting new creations.
The Firkin Ten marries Scotch from the Benrinnes distillery in Speyside with the tangy and spicy richness of Portuguese Madeira wine. Their custom handmade casks use a combination of American first-fill Bourbon staves and new French Limousin oak staves with a custom char which, in combination with the spicy richness of Madeira, creates a unique flavour profile.
Brilliantly rich and fruity notes complement the hint of toasty oak with exceptional balance. This dram lingers like a summer lover, complete with a lovely tingle of spicy oak.
