Much Anticipated 2nd Release Date Announced for Local Whisky

Local spirit masters Wardington’s Original, are gearing up for the second release of their locally distilled whisky on 22 July.

The highly anticipated 2nd edition comes after the 1st sold out in under five minutes back in October, leaving whisky connoisseurs eager for the next batch.

This second small batch promises something equally special, having been finished in Oloroso Sherry casks. Just 400 bottles in total will go on sale at 10am on 22 July. 300 of those will be sold through the website of the Secret Bottle Shop based in Hereford, while a further 100 will be available through loyal local retailers, including Taste at No 1 Ludlow, Ludlow Farmshop, Bottles Worcester and Moonhine & Fuggles Ironbridge.

’After a successful inaugural launch last year which sold out in under three minutes, we are delighted to be launching the second edition of the Wardington’s Original Distiller’s Cut Whisky at the Secret Bottle Shop. Having worked with Shaun and the Wardington’s team since the beginning we are thrilled to see the brand going from strength to strength and we are looking forward to sharing a dram (or two) of this delicious whisky together after the launch!’

Wardington’s Original founder Shaun Ward said: ’We’re constantly asked when we’re releasing more whisky and the wait is finally over. Not only that, but there’s also more to come, with further limited editions with different characters later in the year in time for Christmas.’

Whisky lovers can look forward to the 3rd edition, an Islay cask finished whisky, in October and the 4th edition, a five-year-old single malt, in December.
