Product details

We bet you haven’t tried a whiskey like Never Say Die before! Distilled in Kentucky from a mash bill of  75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley and then matured in a rickhouse for around six years, it’s then put on a boat for a six-week journey to England where it’s bottled at White Peak Distillery. The ageing process is accelerated as the whiskey interacts more with the wood over the rough seas, before it’s given a chance to mellow in England’s cooler climate.

Never Say Die was inspired by the racehorse of the same name which, after being born rather sickly, was revived with a shot of whiskey and then went on to become the first American-born horse to win the Epsom Derby for 70 years in 1954. This is a single cask release (from barrel number #6 to be specific) bottled at cask strength, with herbal, spicy nuances to balance the bourbon sweetness.
