Stirling Distillery in the heart of Scotland has launched its second release of its single cask Sons of Scotland whiskies.
Having produced gin since 2015, distillery co-founders Cameron and June McCann turned their hand to whisky, launching their Sons of Scotland single cask whiskies in January 2021. Drawing on Cameron’s past career working in the whisky industry and running whisky shops in Stirling, the Sons of Scotland range are named after Stirlingshire distilleries which were in operation in the 18th and early 19th century – Cashly, Cambusbarron, Stoneywood and Arngibbon.
“We’ve been delighted at the success of our first Sons of Scotland release last year. Ahead of production starting on our own whisky later this year, we are offering a second release of our popular single malts. People have really embraced this new chapter in Stirling’s whisky history,” says Cameron.
The Sons of Scotland range features four whiskies drawn from different regions of Scotland; the Highlands, Speyside, the Lowlands, and the Islands. The Cashly is a slightly different 10 year old Highland malt with a slightly peaty flavour while the Arngibbon comes from Speyside. This 12 year old cask has an incredible sherry flavour. For our Stoneywood cask, Stirling Distillery have sourced something very different. Coming from an island in the north of Scotland, this 7 year old red wine cask is almost ruby red in colour.
This second collection of casks continues to progress Stirling Distillery’s future whisky making plans. It will begin production of its own new-make spirit in the second half of 2022 and release its first single malt in 2027. The distillery will be launching private cask sales in the near future.
June spoke of her pride getting to contribute to Stirlingshire’s rich whisky heritage, adding that “It has been a dream of ours for many years to be able to make our own whisky in one of the world’s most historic locations. We are very much looking forward to the next part of our journey as a distillery.”
