Founded in 1698, the cellars of Berry Bros. & Rudd have been, for centuries, a temporary resting place not only for the very finest wines but also for some quite exquisite spirits. Perhaps lesser known, our range of spirits has been expanding year on year, and exponentially since we first introduced Berrys’Own Spirits in 2003. As have the accolades and awards that our spirits team have received in recognition of their expert and passionate product sourcing and blending. In all we do, Berry’s strives to provide unparalleled quality and service. To ensure we achieve these aims we source only from people we ourselves trust. These ideals were perhaps never more in evidence than in the selection of The Berrys’ Selected Spirits. Carefully chosen and blended by our spirits team, led by DouglasMcIvor, they represent the standard-bearers of style and quality from four classic spirits producing regions.
The Hebridean island of Islay is renowned for the distinctive peaty style and smoky flavours of its whiskies. Our Classic Islay Malt is carefully selected blend of casks from some of the island's iconic distilleries, creating a balanced, complex and distinguished smoky dram.
Appearance: Light Bouquet: Beautifully integrated, the tar aromas and orchard fruit compliment each other. The characteristic Islay peat note has the upper hand.Palate: Full, approachable, creamy texture with some sweetness, and the quick reminder of its smoky heritage.Finish: Long lingering peat smoke.
