Blackadder’s philosophy is very simple; the Cask is King.
Sixty to seventy percent of the flavours in a whisky are taken up slowly from the cask as the spirit lies maturing in the warehouse. By altering the temperature, the spirit is drawn in and out of the cask. And as a result, each cask is inimitable and unique.
Blackadder don’t subscribe to chilling and heavily filtering their whiskies. Similarly, caramel colouring and flavouring aren’t this bottlers modus operandi.
Blackadder’s casks provide more than enough colour and personality, just as they are.
