Daftmill was granted a license to begin producing spirit in 2005, and had not bottled a single drop of that first distillate until 2018 when it produced just 629 bottles of its inaugural release.
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.
First fill bourbon barrel #89 was filled on 29th December 2006. The cask was selected by the Fusaro brothers of Luvians bottle shop in Fife. The Fusaro’s and Daftmill’s Cuthbert family have been friends since 1962, and this single cask is a fine testament to it.
One of 230 bottles.
