Who can top this WaterProof description from whisky writer Dave Broom “It’s the whisky equivalent of an impeccably dressed, hip, older Japanese gent.”?
The word 'Proof' is still used in the USA to describe alcohol strength. It is exactly twice the amount of alcohol by volume, meaning 40% abv becomes 80 proof and 45.8% becomes 91.6 proof.
WaterProof has been longer in the making than the average 12 year old single malt.... Wishing all a great weekend.
"It's great to see a blended malt which isn't on the American oak side of things but has gone down a more old-school route" says whisky writer Dave Broom thewhiskymanual.uk Have a great weekend
There were some rather notable issues for Charles Macintosh with his patented method of waterproofing... the rubber melted in hot weather and became stiff in cold weather. This was solved in 1839 through “vulcanisation”.
In 1823 Scottish chemist and inventor CHARLES MACINTOSH patented a method of waterproofing cotton through applying liquid rubber between two sheets of cloth.
100% malt from a handful of top tier distilleries making it versatile and complex. Some enjoy it neat or with water or ice, but for cocktail inspiration have a look at waterproofwhisky.com
Whisky writer Dave Broom (whiskymanual.uk) describes the nose of WaterProof as “Big, soft and sherried mixing Oloroso with PX-style sticky raisin element. There’s cake mix/cookie dough, tinned prunes, cold Darjeeling tea and the zip of orange peel. Sweet and rich.”
Inspired by weather and a rain coat: With the yellow label and water droplets WATERPROOF BLENDED MALT SCOTCH WHISKY visibly takes inspiration from the Scottish inventor Charles Macintosh and his invention ‘waterproofing’ and the subsequent Mackintosh jacket.
Crevice, Montenegro is Europe’s wettest destination receiving around 4.6 metres of rainfall each year. In the Autumn, thunderstorms see a 20m waterfall appear near the village, but in the middle of summer the region can become so dry that forest fires are an annual hazard.
Water quote #5 - “Liverpool was a special city that took me in. I will always remember how special that place was. I obviously don’t miss the rain” Fernando Torrres
Water quote #4 - “I love the rain. It’s my favourite weather.” Kristen Wiig
The beauty of a blended malt is like a thoroughbred car. You pick the specialists to deliver the pinnacle of their work and you put it together your own way to make something even greater out of it.
To all our friends around the world celebrating mid-summer whether with a dance, a pole, a bonfire or something else - raise a glass and hope for decent weather
Proud to sponsor the fantastic work the charity Water Works carries out building wells and latrines in Malawi employing only local workers.
Water quote #3 - “I would like to be able to use Storm’s powers for good, like have it rain more in Southern California.” @halleberry
Although WaterProof is batch bottled we don’t claim this to be revolutionary - merely an explanation as to why there may be slight differences between batches.
Yellow is the most luminous of colours, but fortunately it is not only the looks that makes WaterProof stand out.
Vulcanisation was what made the difference to waterproofing of clothes. Vulcanisation was patented by Charles Goodyear - yes... of the tyre fame!
Water fact #3 - when water freezes it expands by 9-10%
