Description:
Limited stock.

On the nose there are delicate tones of fruit and honey combined with vanilla and wood and a hint of coconuts.

The palate has rich honey sweetness, delicate spicy notes and a long vanilla oak finish.

Millstone Whisky is double distilled in handcrafted copper pot stills. The small stills have an extraordinary large copper surface if you compare them to the large stills used elsewhere.

The extra contact between the alcohol vapors and the copper helps to eliminate any unwanted substances and also stimulates the formation of the complex and fruity esters.

The small stills thus produce a very delicate and fruity new spirit. After the careful distillation the whisky is aged in small barrels. Millstone use new barrels of American white oak as well as barrels that have previously held Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry. Because they use new or barrels that have been used only 1 time and we store the barrels in a warm and dry warehouse the whisky ages rather quickly. The downside is that the evaporation losses are rather high.

Typically the 'Angels Share' is between 4% and 5% per year.

Producer Information

Zuidam Distillers was started back in 1975 by Fred van Zuidam. The idea was to start a small distillery that only produced very exclusive products. He built a small distillery of 300 square meters with 1 small copper still and 1 small production line.
After a long and struggling beginning it took Fred van Zuidam over 10 years to create the reputation of being the finest distillery in the Netherlands. But it was only after his wife Helene van Zuidam started creating the packaging for the products of the distillery that business really took off. In 1989 Zuidam expanded their warehouse with 600 square meters and one production line.
These days both sons Patrick and Gilbert run the distillery under the watchful eyes of their parents. With Patrick caring for the distillery and production and Gilbert looking after the customers. They run a state of the art distillery of 3600 square meters with 4 brand new copper stills, over 1000 oak barrels, 4 production lines and a modern tank storage.
In all these years the aim of the distillery has never changed - to please the customers and try to produce the best products possible.
