Stirling Distillery introduces two single cask bottlings: Cashly and Arngibbon

Single malt whisky from Scottish distilleries is released under the “Sons of Scotland” brand

 

With Cashly and Arngibbon, the young Stirling Distillery presents its first single malt whiskies. Of course, these are not self-produced products, because the distillery in the heart of Stirling only opened in 2019. Cashly comes from an unnamed Highland distillery, Arngibbon from a distillery in the Speyside. Both are 8-year-old whiskies that were matured in ex-Bourbon Hogsheads.

“We’re pleased and proud to be releasing whisky from The Castle Rock. What makes us especially excited about our Sons of Scotland range is the chance to start a new chapter in Stirling’s whisky history while celebrating Stirlingshire’s rich whiskymaking heritage.” says Cameron McCann, co-founder of the distillery.

Named after historic whisky distilleries

The Sons of Scotland bottlings were named after historic whisky distilleries in Stirlingshire. Two more bottlings with whisky from the Lowlands and the Islands are to follow in the Sons of Scotland series. The whiskies from the Stirling Distillery are only available in the distillery's own online shop for the time being.

The distillery writes about the aroma of the whiskies: “ The Arngibbon on the nose has hints of custard creams, peaches, vanilla and a hint of heather moor. Malty oak and soft butter tablet to the palate with a malty oak vanilla and warming finish. The Cashly on the nose has hints of eucalyptus and green apples with a sharpness of gooseberry. Butter toast, stewed apples with a gentle spice of white pepper to the palate and a short sweet with hint of sherbet to finish“

A distillery in old blacksmiths premises

The couple June and Cameron McCann opened the Stirling Distillery in 2019 as the city’s first legal distillery in a historic building known as "The Old Smiddy". It was built in 1888 not far from the Stirling Castle and housed a blacksmith in former times. So far, the McCanns have already successfully launched their own gin, and they want to start producing their own whisky later this year.
