The whisky collection was first matured for five years in old American oak, which was then released into seasoned Fino Sherry casks for a further maturation period of four years. During the crafting stage Three Ships Whisky master distiller Andy Watts, saw an unravelling of extraction from the wood over the four-year period and carefully selected four casks that he deemed to offer the optimal flavour composition. The whisky is un-chillfiltered and natural in colour, presented in its purest form at a strength of 48.6% ABV.
