The Heart Cut spotlights a world of whiskies

Worldwide collaboration brings range of new bottlings

Independent bottling firm The Heart Cut has teamed up with distilleries across the world to launch its new range of drams with six global whiskies.

INDEPENDENT bottler The Heart Cut has collaborated with whisky distilleries across the world to release a range of one-off single cask bottlings.

Launched by The Heart Cut founder Georgie Bell, the new range aims to deliver a fresh take on the independent bottling scene through its variety of partners from small, innovative distilleries from across the world.

The range is set to be release periodically across the year with each cask chosen in collaboration with the partner distillery, telling their personal tale of people, provenance and the pursuit of crafting distinctive flavours, according to The Heart Cut.

#01 Stauning Distillery comes with an RRP of £68.50 and is bottled at 52%. Boasting a heather-smoked single malt from the Stauning Distillery in Denmark, the expression has been finished off in a Madeira cask.

#02 East London Liquor Co. includes a rye whisky matured in a Hackney Brewery Chocolate Stout cask resulting in tasting notes of chocolate brownie, black cherries and cocoa dusted almonds. RRP sits at £62.50 with the ABV at 49.9%.

#03 Kyrö Distillery is a 100% malt rye whisky from Kyrö Distillery in Finland and has been matured in New American Oask Cask. The RRP for this one sits at £58.50 and has been bottled at 52%ABV.

A spokesperson for The Heart Cut said: “Having travelled around the world discovering exciting distilleries, The Heart Cut was born from a collective desire to share this sense of adventure and exploration of new world whisky with others.

“From Finland to Australia, Denmark to India, The Heart Cut curates a range of bottlings from distilleries that are unbound by tradition.

“No matter their location, each is throwing the rule book out the door and creating whisky with a curious ‘what if we tried this?’ mentality.”
