Waterproof Whisky

LOVE IT
WHEN IT'S
POURING

WHY WATERPROOF?

‘Water’ because we have plenty and it is essential to whisky-making.

‘Proof’ because it is the old spirit strength measuring scale. Once strength was ‘proven’ with gunpowder – later with a more peaceful hydrometer. In 1980 British Proof Spirit changed to Alcohol Percentage.

‘WaterProof’ because it is sensible outdoor wear and this whisky is bottled at higher strength and can handle water.

WaterProof Whisky - Love it when it's pouring.

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

WATERPROOF is a Sherry-influenced malt whisky from a handful of top distilleries, batch bottled at higher than normal strength.

The name and looks are inspired by 'Water' and 'Strength' (Proof) and by the Scottish inventor of the much-needed raincoat (the Mac), Charles Macintosh.

It's not you wheat, it's us. We embrace all cultivated grains but alas wheat, maize, rye and others can not be used for Scotch malt whisky, only malted barley. Nothing personal. #MaltWhisky #MaltWhisky #MaltWhiskySherriedEven #TheSpiritOfTheOutdoors

We fill casks with Oloroso Sherry from Bodegas Romate in Jerez. Don't you just love the yellow colour on the wall? It is almost as if we have colour coordinated.... #MostFamousJerseyInCyclingIsYellow #AyrtonDroveAYellowLotus #SherriedWhisky #MaltWhisky #TheSpiritOfTheOutdoors

Empty casks lined up waiting to be filled with the most delicious Oloroso Sherry at Bodegas Romate. We did bring a few bottles home so we can keep sampling and reminding ourselves just how good this sherry is. #SherriedWhisky #MaltWhisky #TheSpiritOfTheOutdoors
