We came across a barrel of single malt that, with lots of smoke and char, tasted so distinctly ‘Hawksmoor’, that we asked the distiller to bottle it all just for us. Like a great steak it has a lingering smokey sweetness, along with a hint of salinity from island sea air. Distilled and aged for 11 years in a bourbon barrel at Ledaig on the Isle of Mull, it has been bottled at cask strength (48.9%) so isn’t for the faint of heart.

There are only a few bottles in existence, most of which we’ll be using on our bars, but we are able to offer some up which are available to purchase for £95 from our Guildhall, Knightsbridge, Air Street and Manchester restaurants.
