Introducing the special edition Single Malt Vatting Whisky, exclusively created for Highgrove by Cotswold Distillery, to celebrate His Majesty King Charles III's 75th birthday on November 14, 2023. With only 1500 bottles in this batch, this is truly a whisky to be celebrated.
This special edition vatting whisky is distilled from heritage Plumage Archer malt, grown on the Highgrove estate. It is nurtured, distilled, and bottled in the Cotswolds, UK. This barley variety yields a subtle but unique twist on the regular spirits produced by Cotswold Distillery and is filled into three different cask types, all of which are part of this blend.
This whisky is the first release between Highgrove and Cotswold Distillery, which features Plumage Archer spirit matured in ex-Port casks.
All the barley used by Cotswold Distillery is sourced locally and traditionally floor-malted at nearby Warminster Maltings, Britain's oldest working maltings, where Plumage Archer barley was initially invented in 1906.
Each bottle of Highgrove's King's 75th Birthday Vatting Whisky is adorned with a commemorative label and presented in a royal blue tube to mark this special occasion.
