Distillery 48 is one of the few distilleries that still uses this less-efficient, but – arguably – more desirable way of distilling spirit. In the case of Cask 48.120 Worm tub stodge, just seven years in a rich, 1st-fill, ex-bourbon barrel has gifted this delicious distillate with a richness of tinned fruits, poached rhubarb, brown sugar, and rich meaty moreish spirit. Grab your winter togs and dive into a worm tub with us this month!
A bright and fresh nose full of stone fruits, torn mint leaf, chewy toffee and foam bananas. Playful, vivid and enticing. Some green apples, tinned peaches, pineapple cubes and hints of clove and tree bark added richness. Some water brought milk chocolate and orange travel sweets. Candied hazelnuts, warm custard and some poached rhubarb with brown sugar. The palate when neat was full of strawberries and meringue, tutti frutti and coconut milk with apricots. Water brought pecans and maple swirl ice cream, orange blossom, a hint of lavender and porridge laced with gooseberry jam.
