Lot 239 - Daftmill 2009 Summer Release 2020

Auction Ended: Tuesday 20 April, 2021

Winning Bid: £200.00

Estimate: £200 - £250
Daftmill is a farm distillery, owned and run by the Cuthbert family, who grow all of the barley used in their whisky on-site. The distillery is only operational during the farm's quiet periods in mid-summer and mid-winter, sometimes producing as few as 100 casks per year. The distillery was granted its license in 2005, but not in a hurry to rush out their product, it was 2018 before their inaugural release. This patience and dedication to their craft has won the distillery an army of passionate fans, among collectors and connoisseurs alike. This is the UK version of the Summer Batch Release for 2020. A 2009 vintage, it is a vatting of bourbon and sherry casks, #21, #25, #32, #33 and #44. Distilled from Optic barley grown in the farm's South fields and harvested in the last week of August 2006. It was stored on the farm to be malted in Alloa during the summer of 2007. One of 1875 bottles.
