Under the guidance ofwell known Master Distiller, Mike Nicolson, the spirit is distilled batch by batch intraditional copper pot stills and will utilize waters drawn from our own aquifer, which isglacier fed by nearby snowcapped mountains.Whisky is matured in the highest quality oak casks, each individually numbered andmarked with the owner's name. Cask Owners will be involved in a close relationshipwith their barrel through annual cask samples, opportunities to visit the Distillery as wellas input into deciding at which stage in the maturation they would like to bottle the singlemalt and at what strength. Shelter Point will take care of the bottling and owners willhave the option to create personalized labels for their unique product."So far, Shelter Point's new make character is developing between the 'green' and'fruity' categories. The American oak will complement this with further layers ofvanilla/coconut leading to what we hope will be a light but subtly complex mature spirit."Says Master Distiller Mike Nicolson regarding the flavor profile of the new make spirit.Contact us for information on this opportunity.Contact: Rebecca Berry at Shelter Point DistilleryEmail: info@shelterpointdistillery.comWeb:
