Whisky Cask


A flavoursome cider, made potent in the oak of a Glen Moray Whisky. Initially, a gentle Whisky flavour intermingles with a subtle, medium dry cider.

An unfiltered vintage cider, Jaggy Thistle is smooth to drink and packed full of flavour. A dry cider that retains the warming, full bodied mouthfeel you'd expect from a vintage blend.
