Cotswolds Distillery

As a native New Yorker Dan Szor fell in love with the Cotswolds during his many family weekends spent escaping the stress of London city living. Wishing for a more relaxed rural lifestyle with his wife and young daughter along with the opportunity to create something tangible, Dan wanted to make a permanent move to enjoy the rolling hills and honey-coloured cottages of the Cotswolds. Harbouring a deep-rooted passion for single malt whisky Dan also made annual pilgrimages to island of Islay where he purchased his first cask of whisky from the Bruichladdich Distillery and so caught the distilling bug. During one of his family weekends in the Cotswolds Dan woke up to a sunny morning which he spent staring through the window into a neighbouring barley field. Seeing the golden grain waving in the breeze Dan had a brainwave “I suddenly thought there’s barley all over the Cotswolds and nobody’s distilling it let’s be the first!” Snapping up an old barn conversion in the beautiful village of Stourton near Shipston-on-Stour in the heart of the Cotswolds Dan embarked upon his journey to create world-class artisanal spirits using local top-quality ingredients.
Notes of vanilla, honey, butterscotch and a hint of coconut, resulting in a truly well-balanced dram.
Best served neat or with a drop of water.
