Product details

An intriguing blended malt from London’s Bimber distillery, located not too far from Wembley. Named after the Polish word for moonshine, Bimber was founded in 2015 by Dariusz Plazewski, who is carrying on the distilling tradition after his father and grandfather – they were both moonshiners in his native Poland.

Apogee XII is created using a blend of single malts from Speyside and the Highlands, aged for at least 12 years. Though the whiskies are from Scotland, this can’t legally be called a Scotch whisky because it’s been bottled in London. After blending, the whisky was given an extra rest in bourbon casks that had also previously been used to mature Bimber's very own single malt whisky, so it’s fairly sweet – though there are some rich, darker flavours to keep things in check.
