Birkentree taps into whisky market

Scottish firm Birkentree is setting its sights on dram drinkers with the launch of a new whisky accompaniment made from birch water.

As an alternative to adding a splash of water to whisky, Birkentree says its birch water’s “unique and subtle composition” naturally complements single malts.

Master whisky maker Max McFarlane, a 40-year industry veteran, taste-tested Birkentree with a range of single malts: “Birch water is extraordinary. This precious liquid comes together to impart a luxurious smoothness; elevating the experience that drinking single malt whisky brings.

“Birkentree will open up the conversation about the at-home drinking experience. Shaping how we guide new and existing drinkers on how to enjoy a dram in a fresh and exciting way.”

The company is the brainchild of husband and wife duo Rob and Gabrielle Clamp, a professional forester and herbalist respectively.

Rob Clamp said bringing Birkentree to life has been an exciting journey: “We have always believed that birch water is truly unique and had the potential to become a natural companion for whisky.

“We know that whisky drinkers, whether that’s single malt enthusiasts or people trying their first dram, will love Birkentree from the very first sip.”

Sustainably harvested in Highland Perthshire, Birkentree is hand-tapped from centuries-old birch trees to create 100% pure birch water.

The company recommends that each bottle (100ml, RSP £5.95) is shaken vigorously before pouring and the optimum ratio of whisky to birch water is 50:50.
