The starting point – we were looking for a rye that had the flavours we wanted to make to give us a benchmark to start from. After a long search we settled on this modern take on rye whiskey, very different from the American ryes we were more familiar with, but still with classic rye spice at its core. This whiskey balances sweetness and spice, and layers in fruitiness from the spirit, as well as some extra depth from its time finishing in sherry casks. It’s the perfect inspiration for our own whiskey and a base for our ongoing experiments.

Tasting Notes

Nose

Salted butter and bramble jam lead, with sweet and sour fruit accompanied by a touch of lightly toasted rye bread. Honey peeks around the sharp berries, along with leafy and spicy rye notes: cinnamon, tarragon and a hint of spearmint. The butter returns with salted caramel and gentle spice.

Palate

The berries take centre stage with blackberries and blackcurrants – and their leaves – all sprinkled with brown sugar. Hints of anise build into black liquorice sticks with a touch of mint choc chip and damp oak. Rich earthy notes sit underneath, balanced by fruity dark chocolate, and sweet and sharp berries.

Finish

Treacle toffee, black liquorice and blackcurrants fade to leave leafy notes.

The Story

A brief introduction to The Wrecking Coast Distillery

Inside the shed

Avian Sandercock

Minder of the stills, conductor of experiments, flavour obsessive and chief geek. If you have drunk anything made by Wrecking Coast, you have Avian to thank for pressing the buttons, pulling the levers, shovelling ingredients, and probably for putting it in the bottle.

Outside the shed

Craig Penn

Head salesman, arbiter of design, one-man online team and chief taste-tester. If you have held a bottle from Wrecking Coast in your hands, then you have Craig to thank for both how it looks and for extracting it from the Cornish countryside and getting it to you.

In the beginning...

Buddies Avian and Craig have dabbled in drinks for years, although from the drinking side of the bar. Having lost his taste for beer, Craig turned to spirits.
