WS:02 The Long and Short of it


Some say there’s nothing new in Scotch Whisky. We say, think again.

Fermentation is an essential part of determining flavour in Scotch Whisky. For this second edition of the Workshop Series, our distillers experimented with very short fermentations of 55 hours and very long ones of 150 hours. Both batches were then distilled twice and matured in first fill ex-bourbon barrels, before being married with single grain. 

Chill-filtered at 40% ABV. Entirely distilled by The Borders Distillery Company.

Each WS:02 The Long & Short of it bottle is individually numbered, with only 8,400 bottles being released for sale around the world.

40% ABV 70cl. Please drink responsibly. Over 18s only.
