Stirling Distillery is to launch a limited-edition VI Casks for King James single malt whisky range.

The six-bottle set comprises one bottle from six different flavoured casks, including bourbon, sherry, port, rum, wine and madeira.

The move marks the distillery’s foray into new-make whisky production, as the owners were keen to evolve it from gin to a whisky producer.

The VI Casks of King James whisky will be created in the first legal distillery to sit on the castle rock, the distillery said, in the shadow of Stirling Castle.

The bottles will be released bi-annually from 2027; there will only be 300 bottles from a single cask and each set will cost £350.

On purchasing a set, customers will get first refusal on any Stirling Distillery new-make whisky, receive a branded polo shirt, and an exclusive pin badge.

“For us, the essential components for creating a truly special whisky are simple; from using only the best water, yeast and malted barley to the care that goes into hand selecting the best quality casks to develop the rich flavours,” Co-owner June McCann said.

“Whisky production is a delicate process that takes time, love and passion and we’re excited to start our whisky journey.”
