Why not spoil your Dad this Father’s Day with an English whisky. Cotswolds Distillery, situated in the glorious English countryside, produces stunning single malt whiskies, which would make a very spoiling gift for your Dad.
Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky
The award-winning Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky was launched in 2017 and is the first whisky ever distilled in the Cotswolds. The distillery uses 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley and matures the whisky in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels and reconditioned red wine casks. Rich and fruity, Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky is sippable with notes of honey, Seville orange marmalade and dark red fruits.
Available in a beautiful gift box, it is the perfect gift for a whisky lover and is versatile. Delicious neat, mixed with ginger ale for a longer serve or as an excellent base for cocktail creation. You could spoil your Dad to the Cotswolds Boulevardier cocktail: a rich and warming variation on the Negroni. A delicious marriage of honeyed malt, rich aromatics and bittersweet marmalade.
Ingredients: 45ml Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky | 30ml Sweet Vermouth | 30ml Campari
