Broken Bones Spirit Development Set
Broken Bones single malt spirit has a unique character that comes from combining a strong Slovenian influence with the Scottish tradition of whisky making.
Broken Bones spirit is matured in specially selected barrels made from Slovenian sessile oak and in American white oak barrels sourced from renowned US distilleries, which lend the spirit its distinctive full, floral and fruity flavour.
While our spirit is maturing, we provide you with an exclusive opportunity to taste the magic of the progress from new make spirit through maturation in barrels of various types with our sample pack.
New make spirit
Taste the new make spirit directly out of our spirit pot still before maturation. The spirit has an alcohol strength of about 70%, but here it is diluted to drinking strength at 46%. Notice that the spirit is quite raw with distinct barley flavour and hints of what will mature over time into a smooth, complex and elegant whisky.
Aged 6 months
The spirit was first matured in Slovenian oak barrels and just transferred into American oak barrels. At this age it is still quite raw, but much more rounded than the new make spirit, with some developed flowery and subtle fruity notes.
Aged 12 months
Whisky needs a long time to mature fully. At one year the spirit is finally starting to mellow with pronounced fresh and fruity aromas and show its potential, but it is still a long way from fully-formed and it is at least two years before it can even legally be called whisky.
