  • Personality

    As a cask comes to maturity, Finn curates sampling sessions in interesting and relaxing environments, with friends, whisky experts and trusted partners to discover the personality of each cask and gauge the experience each dram evokes.

  • Distillery character

    All the best distillers pride themselves on crafting whisky with a distinctive flavour, which is determined by the water source, grain and barley, the peat and malting, and their distilling processes. High quality original spirit is integral to every cask we bottle.

  • Cask influence

    The cask itself interacts with the whisky over time. The type of wood plays a big role, as do treatments such as the whiskies are aged in a variety of types of casks. The whiskies are aged in former sherry or bourbon casks, augmenting the cask influence. External conditions such as air temperature, pressure and humidity also interact with the cask producing a knock-on effect that makes the spirit inside unique.

  • Balance

    Finn uses these factors to balance each FT whisky experience. He may sample a cask and decide to leave it on the rack, allowing age to further develop its personality. He might decide to re-rack a whisky in a new cask to add a finishing touch. Or, he might simply deem it ready. When Finn decides the flavour is perfectly balanced, it’s time to bottle the whisky.

Cask Story

This cask of North British is the oldest single grain release we have bottled so far. Distilled in 1988, a magnificent 35 years of ageing have created an abundance of sweet toffee notes.
North British has played a fundamental role in the story of my family’s journey in the whisky industry. It was the core component of my grandfather’s blend Beneagles, where the sweet and buttery character of this grain whisky was expertly blended with the richness of Macallan and other hand selected Speyside malts.
Over 35 years of ageing, this cask has developed a rich personality of its own. Alongside the natural sweet notes, there is an oily mouthfeel that creates a long and warming finish. A gentle peppery spice adds a complexity to this whisky that is impossible to find without the long years of quiet maturation.
Single grain whiskies continue to be under-appreciated but this is a single cask release that proves that with time and patience single grain whisky should be held in the same esteem as the finest single malts.
