This limited edition of Daftmill 2009 is made from the barley variety Optic which was cultivated in the fields of the farm and harvested the last week of August 2006. The barley is then stored on the farm before being malted in Alloa in the summer of 2007. The first fill Oloroso Sherry butt and three ex-Bourbon barrels were chosen by Wine and Spirit Merchants Berry Bros & Rudd. It was distilled and filled in the first two weeks of August 2009, then bottled in 2020. 1,785 bottles were produced.
Spirits Type: Scotch Whisky
Spirits Style: Single Malt
Nose: Soft dried fruit sweetness, balanced by hints of lemon meringue pie, cigar box and cereal.
Palate: Caramelized nuts, cinnamon and cardamom spiciness, shortbread, subtly earthy barley leading into a touch of flinty mineral notes.
Finish: Pear drops, stem ginger, another helping of cinnamon and vanilla.
The 2020 Summer in a Bottle is the winery’s most atmospheric pink, in large part, to be sure, because of its beautiful, flowered bottle. It is a kitchen-sink blend of 48.5% Merlot, 17% Chardonnay, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc and dollops of other grapes, including a little Gewürztraminer, for the rest. It is all unoaked, near bone dry and comes in at 12.8% alcohol. There is no malolactic fermentation. If you wonder what makes this different than the estate pink, the answer to me is that this is bolder and a little more flamboyant. They aren’t night-and-day different, but the estate pink seems more refined and balanced by comparison.
This Rosé has lovely balance between the fresh fruit, fine tannins, good minerality and graceful acidity. It is the visual and taste portrait of the Hampton’s high summer. Serve chilled, solo or as a complement to almost any food. It is the perfect summer wine.
Region: New York
Bright shiny copper in color. The aroma is elegant with fine clean fruit notes of pears and apples but with a luxurious ripeness. The mouthfeel is vibrant and has lovely spiciness and a rich texture with fine tannins. It is livened up by nice acidity and a classic minerality and salinity. This dry rosé is very savory and has a long finish with creamy yeast and delicate chalk notes. This may be the most food-friendly Summer in a Bottle to date and is certainly the perfect summer wine!
Food Pairing Notes
Serve chilled, solo or as a complement to almost any food. At cocktail parties, it will shine alongside hors d’oeuvres such as smoked salmon, lobster, shrimp, carpaccio and soft cheeses. It can also complement main-course fish and pork dishes, and at Thanksgiving, it is perfect with turkey.
Hendrick’s Gin introduces Midsummer Solstice, a small batch, limited-edition gin by Hendrick’s Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie, inspired by the everlasting mystery of nature’s most effervescent blooms. This innovative expression sees the original Hendrick’s recipe instilled with a secret selection of floral essences that enhances the liquid’s existing botanical bouquet. The result is an enchantingly floral and exquisitely refreshing gin that blossoms on the palate while remaining unmistakably Hendrick’s.
Midsummer Solstice is a small batch, limited edition by Hendrick’s Gin. As a holiday romance, or the life span of the mayfly Midsummer Solstice is a poetic expression of temporality…once it’s gone the moment it’s gone, it’s gone forever.
