Reference Series Branded Whisky

The Reference Series is an ambitious, exciting, and really delicious project. As you go from I to II to III, the quantity of older, exciting and altogether yummy whisky goes up (the exact proportions are stated on the bottle). We've created a series that when tasted in order, you'll catch recurrent qualities but notice a clear progression in terms of flavour profile. Awesome, awesomer, awesomest, if you will. But it doesn't stop there...

From here, the series will continue with a number of extensions that use these whiskies as a base but focus on a particular additional ingredient or technique. For example, I.1, II.1 and III.1 is partly finished in fresh 50 litre ex-Pedro Ximénez Sherry casks, while I.2, II.2 and III.2 are made with 10% peated single malt from Islay. The .3 extensions (I.3, II.3 and III.3) see the addition of e150a spirit caramel and future releases may include chill-filtered versions, for example.

Naturally, 3cl samples are also available, making it even easier to enjoy this educational whisky journey! You can read more about the first three 'reference' releases as well as the first batch of extensions over on the blog.
