The Port of Leith Distillery in Edinburgh will be using casks seasoned with sherry from Bodegas Barón to mature its whisky. While we are waiting for the whisky to age we're being given a taste of the sherry.

Bodegas Barón is a 480 year old producer with a very modern outlook. The un-matured version of the Oloroso wine will be used to season oak casks in Sanlúcar de Barrameda, in the heart of Jerez in South West Spain, before they are shipped to Scotland to fill them with whisky.

The sherry has a classic fruity character.

Tasting Notes

A classic Oloroso character with flavours of dried fruit and prunes balanced with lighter tropical fruits. There are notes of warming ginger, coffee, hazelnut and a hint of oak.

The perfect serve

Enjoy as a classic after dinner wine served just below room temperature. Also great when combined with whisky to create a Sherry Old Fashioned.

Meet the maker

Established by two friends in 2017, Port of Leith Distillery is situated just a stone's throw from the docks where for many centuries, a vast array of goods came into Scotland including spices, botanicals and spirits including Jenever from Holland and rum from the Caribbean. From the stillhouse, the talented distillers produce small batch spirits including sherry and gin. 2019 will see the start of construction for their new, purpose-built distillery which will be over 5 floors and will become Scotland's first vertical distillery.
