The Founders' Club Copper membership includes:
- One bottle of INAUGURAL RELEASE single malt whisky from cask #001. Be the proud owner of a bottle of our very first batch of single malt whisky, drawn from our first-filled cask. Non-chill filtered and naturally coloured single cask whisky made from traditionally floor-malted Yorkshire barley, copper pot-distilled and aged in small oak casks crafted by England’s last master cooper. Each one will be hand-bottled, numbered and signed at the distillery. With only 220 (50cl) bottles publicly available worldwide, this very limited release is available to members only and will not be on general sale. A ballot will be drawn for the highly prized bottle number 1. We anticipate our casks to be fully mature after 3 to 5 years’ maturation and the whisky will be delivered to you as soon as it’s bottled.
- One bottle of ‘new-make’ malt spirit. Your chance to sample our un-aged and double-distilled 100% malted barley spirit, straight off the copper pot still and before it goes into cask to become whisky (50cl, RRP £34.95).
- Two bottles of maturing spirit. Receive a 20cl bottle of 1 year-old malt spirit and a 20cl bottle of 2 year-old malt spirit and follow its complex journey to becoming delicious whisky.
- One bottle of limited edition Founders’ Cask single malt whisky. Non-chill filtered and naturally coloured single cask, single malt whisky made from traditionally floor-malted Yorkshire barley, copper pot-distilled and aged in small oak casks crafted by England’s last master cooper (70cl, RRP £74.95). This bottling of early casks filled at the distillery will be available to members only and delivered straight to your door when mature after 3 to 5 years’ maturation. Individually hand-bottled and numbered at the distillery.
