Limited Edition, only 1000 bottles produced.
Barrel Aged dark beer. Aged in Spirit of Yorkshire spirit casks for 11 months. Dark, rich and sweet.
Swell is a dark beer brewed specifically for barrel-aging, the recipe developed to hold the flavours from the casks without being overwhelmed. It’s rich, fruity and full of flavour.
It has spent 11 months in a combination of casks from the Spirit of Yorkshire, each of which had previously held maturing spirit from the distillery, including a PX (Pedro Ximenez) cask which is extremely rare in the world of barrel-aging, as well as an STR cask (red wine cask which has been shaved, toasted and recharred to really enhance flavour and maturation). The bourbon casks were all from Distillery Projects 003, which won a Liquid Gold (95/100) award from Jim Murray in his 2020 Whisky Bible, unprecedented for a not-quite-whisky.
