Aber Falls Distillery in Abergwyngregyn has today released a brand new ‘Rye Distillery Exclusive’ Welsh Whisky, with just 579 bottles being made available from its Visitor Centre.

With a combination of 51% malted rye and 49% Welsh malted barley, this Rye Whisky has been matured in a Virgin Oak cask for just over 3 years. This whisky is natural in colour & non-chill filtered – produces notes of Christmas cake candied fruits, marzipan, chocolate, and vanilla, whilst the palate delivers a taste of rye bread with hints of apple and malt, with a long-lasting, with a long delicately spiced finish reminiscent of spiced, ginger biscuits.

Jill Boyd, Master Blender at Aber Falls, said: “One of the great advantages of being a Welsh distillery is our ability to be able to experiment with different wood types and barrels. In turn, we can create unique whiskies and our rye release is a great example of this.”

Aber Falls Single Malt whiskies are distilled, matured, and bottled in North Wales, between the foothills of the Carneddau mountains in Eryri and the Menai straits. They are crafted using 100% Welsh malted barley and rock-filtered water taken from the Aber Falls Waterfall and are crafted by a team of local people. This very special whisky release is a combination of Welsh malt, and Rye creating a truly exceptional limited whisky release.

The Aber Falls ‘Rye Distillery Exclusive’ Whisky is bottled at 52% ABV and available to purchase from the distillery’s shop at an RRP of £85.
