Caramel malt combined with an old PX sherry butt

This whisky is distilled from a mix of pale malt and dark-roasted caramel malt, adding a distinct burnt caramel sweetness to the whisky, which plays beautifully with the sweet aroma of raisins and brown sugar from the old PX cask. The cask’s age shines through adding noble, dusty and earthy aromas to the whisky.

The interplay is rich with notes of cocoa and dark chocolate. Under the dark, spicy sweetness you still find the characteristic malt and fruitiness of a Thy Whisky, which produces lightness and contrast to
balance this intensely sweet and intriguingly complex dram.

Certified organic

This whisky is made from 100% certified organic grains grown on our estate, Gyrup. Both the farm and the distillery are certified organic to ensure pure drinking water and good animal welfare.

A day to remember

It was a day to remember, five years ago, as our first 500 litre PX sherry butt arrived at the estate. The smell of the wood that had once held PX sherry for practically a century was heavenly. Here it is. One single cask. Bottled at cask strength in its full intensity.
