Bonnington whisky mixes in sherry

Single malt brings in a PX Sherry cask finish in its line

Edinburgh based single malt whisky brand Bonnington has followed up on its inaugural release with the launch of its new Pedro Ximénez Sherry Cask finish.

EDINBURGH based single malt scotch whisky brand Bonnington has announced the next release in its line with a new Sherry Cask finish.

Fully matured in Pedro Ximénez Sherry Casks, the new Bonnington Sherry Cask has rolled out to the market with only 250 cases available in the market.

With tasting notes described as fresh, subtle red fruit, berries and dusted sugar, the launch from the Halewood Artisanal Spirits brand will be made available from specialist whisky retailers in the coming weeks including Master of Malt, Hard to Find Whisky and The Whisky Exchange.

Bottled at an ABV of 47%, the limited release from Bonnington comes with an RRP of between £50-55.

Bonnington was first founded when building the foundations of the distillery in 2018, where the ruins of the old Bonnington House in Edinburgh were found on the site.

The historic finding has made up the major inspiration behind the creation of the Bonnington brand and all future releases from the distillery will now launch under the Bonnington name.

Jamie Lockhart, distillery manager at Bonnington Distillery, said: “I am delighted to follow up our inaugural launch with this very nice sherry cask release.

“The liquid itself is something that we’re really proud of – aged in Pedro Ximénez Casks and cut at 47%, it’s bold, rich and full of flavour.”

Jill Boyd, master blender, said: “We carefully selected five Pedro Ximénez Casks from our inventory for this bottling and I am delighted with the result.

“Our plan with Bonnington releases is to keep them small batch. We have exciting ideas for 2024 with further limited bottlings planned.”
