Bottomley Distillers Ltd – Lincolnshire Whisky Spirit

December 2019 has seen Bottomley Distillers Ltd release an uncasked Lincolnshire Grain Single Malt Whisky Spirit.

The whisky project has been the centre of the growth of the distillery and as the spirit enters cask, Amy Conyard, director at Bottomley Distillers said: “There has been a vast interest in the spirit, so the logical step was to release it early, in hope of giving our drinkers a taste of what is to come and something to look forward to!”

 

The heritage of the distillery dates back to the 1950s where Alan’s father used to distill whisky, very rudimentally of course. Alan grew up in the 80’s watching his father with fascination and it became a passion in later life which resulted in the creation of Pin Gin.

Their 500ltr copper pot still was at the heart of honouring the family story, being named Stansfield upon arrival in Spring 2019.

Alan Bottomley said: “The best way that I could remember my dad and use his skills was to create my own Whisky and being in Lincolnshire gives us a prime opportunity to utilise Lincolnshire Grain to do this.

“I’ve learnt from my father and hopefully one day, Molly will learn from me.”

Stansfield and his team of a 500ltr Mash Lauter Tun and 500ltr Fermenter have been award winning in their own way, leading the way for a sustainable approach to distillation. Earlier this year, winning the award for Innovation in Sustainability at the Tech & Innovation Awards.

The PLC controls that operate the process here, runs with AI and works by self learning where wastages are, meaning that it is continually working to create a zero waste distillation process.

This technology has also just been commisioned and installed at the brand new Manchester Gin distillery in Manchester Central, with guidance and consulation from Alan. At the end of this whisky process, our spent grain goes to animal feed at local farms, furthering the efforts to be as environmentally conscious as possible.

Amy Conyard also added: “It has been an honour to get this bottle to market, currently only being sold directly at the distillery. With this being such a personal project for the distillery, I was really proud to have designed the labels for this and feel that adding that personal touch is the culmination of this project coming to fruition! We just have to wait a few more years now for it to mature into a full Single Malt!”

The Lincolnshire Grain Whisky Spirit is available for £45 at the distillery and is hand numbered in a batch of just 103 bottles!
