Not that long ago in a distillery not that far away....New spirit first ran from Cotswolds’ two pot stills (Mary and Janis) on 5th September 2014. Seventeen days later the very first casks of Cotswolds single malt were laid down to slumber. Fast-forward to the end of 2017 and the minimum 3 year maturation period had passed. Already over 25,000 visitors had been attracted each year and the distillery was (and still is) Tripadvisor’s #1 thing to do in the Cotswolds. At this stage, other new distilleries have (at least in recent history) bolted out the gates with fanciful stories of luxury and premium alongside even more fanciful inaugural edition bottle prices. But, not Cotswolds.
