Aber Falls Inaugural Whisky Release
Marking a significant milestone in our whisky journey, today we launch our first 100% Welsh single malt whisky.
The ‘Inaugural Release’ consists of 2,000 bottles, and is quintessentially Welsh; milled and distilled in North Wales using 100% Welsh malted barley and rock-filtered water from the Aber Falls waterfall. It’s also aged in the Distillery’s local Welsh warehouses, before being bottled on site at the Distillery. This exceptional single malt was distilled in a copper pot still and matured along the coastline of North Wales in a mix of wooden barrels, including American and European oak, Spanish sherry, Virgin oak and Orange Wine casks selected to enhance the flavour profile during maturation.
The glowing amber expression, produced and bottled on-site, is alive with tropical fruit flavours at first, followed by scents of sweet hay and cut grass. The palate delivers warmth with dark chocolate and golden syrup before rounding off with a touch of cream and vanilla to finish. This special release will be the first of many age-declared whiskies and special editions planned for the future, is bottled at 46% ABV, and the 70cl expression has an RRP of £46.
To complement the unique characteristics of the whisky from the first Distillery in North Wales for more than 100 years, the ‘Inaugural Release’ has a bespoke bottle, boldly embossed with the brand’s unique Triquetra and topped off with a wooden cap, reinforcing the Distillery’s heritage and the brand story. The bottle is presented in a simple yet striking gift box made from fully sustainable materials, supporting Aber Falls’ pledge to be 100% sustainable in the future.
Best of luck if you are trying to secure a bottle of our inaugural release whisky today. There are a very limited number available available from our distillery shop and website while stocks last. Purchases will be capped at one bottle per person so that we are giving as many people as possible the opportunity to buy one. Diolch!
