Dà Mhìle G&T's Go Over Big at the BAFTA Cymru Awards

Not only were the BAFTA Cymru awards guests treated to Dà Mhìle cocktails but our own John Savage-Onstwedder attended as a guest for his latest play!

We had a great time serving up G&Ts to Welsh celebrities and BAFTA winners. Mixing our Seaweed Gin with Fevertree's Elderflower tonic and our Botanical Gin & Source tonic. Delicious night all around. 

The First Organic Welsh Whisky!

On September 27th, local MP Mark Williams helped us release our first, highly anticipated, organic single grain Welsh whisky. This date actually coincides with our founder John Savage-Onstwedder’s birthday.

John says: 'This very first limited edition is a whisky of the highest quality and bodes well for the future. For the past four years we have been laying down more stocks and we look forward to 2019 when we will be launching our first organic single malt whisky.'

The majority of this historic release has been pre-ordered and online purchases are limited to 2 bottles.

Nose: Peat, spice
Taste: Smoke, sweet vanilla
Finish: Dry at first, evolving towards salty oak drift wood.


Historic Organic Dà Mhìle Malt Whisky

Simultaneously we are releasing our final cask of historic 16 year-old single malt. This is earmarked to become a collector’s favourite. It was commissioned by Dà Mhìle and distilled at Loch Lomond in the year 2000, the new millennium that gives DÀ MHÌLE (Gaelic for TWO THOUSAND) its name. Truly history in a bottle.

Nose: A cornucopia of sweet fruits, molasses and sherry.
(Let breathe for 5 minutes in glass to release full fruitiness).
Taste: Molasses, liquorice. 
Finish: Full in the mouth, followed by warming oak.

Our beloved Oak-Aged Gin will be available starting on Monday, October 10th!

Dà Mhìle Whisky sets another world record!

Our 24 year old cask of organic Springbank whisky has achieved a new world record price of £75,000, making it the most expensive cask of whisky ever sold!

Here's what  our founder John Savage-Onstwedder had to say: “When this historic whisky was bottled in late 1999 to celebrate the new millennium, I predicted that one day DA MHILE could become the most expensive whisky in the world, but I had never imagined that this would happen in my lifetime. I had imagined that perhaps as a 40 or 50-year- old it would be the most expensive whisky to be sold in a bottle, but to become the most expensive organic whisky cask ever sold was completely beyond my expectations. My prediction of it one day becoming the most expensive whisky in a bottle has now come one step nearer and I am absolutely convinced that if my son John-James, the distillery manager at Dà Mhìle, lets one ofthese casks mature long enough then it will one day be the most expensive whisky in the world – in a bottle too.”

Our future is looking bright as our whisky is only going to get better with age and we're bottling our first batch of Welsh whisky this year!
