Westland’s Sherry Wood is a new world approach to an old world idea. For decades, the use of ex-sherry casks for whiskey maturation has been a favored technique in Scotland and beyond. Bottled at 46% ABV.
In marrying the decadence of sherry with their unique grain-forward house style we create something altogether new. Like the grain they source, they hold their sherry casks to high standards of quality. These casks held some of the world’s finest Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry for nearly a century and in the skilled hands of Rafael Cabello and his team at Tonelería del Sur in Montilla, Spain they have been given new life and purpose. Their long-standing partnership with his family-owned cooperage now provides us with one of the largest supplies of sherry casks in America.
