Description

The Living Cask is a release by Loch Fyne inspired by George Saintsbury's influential 'Notes on a Cellar-Book' published in 1920. In it, Saintsbury describes how to create a solera-style system, or living cask, within your own cellar. This particular offering, to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Loch Fyne Whiskies in Inverary, is based on a passage from the book: 'A friend of mine from Oxford days, now dead, held some mixed Clyne Lish and Glenlivet to be the best whisky he had ever drunk.'
