Introducing the Master Distiller’s Waterfall Collection, highlighting the journey that our whisky takes to mature its flavours and character. In five very special annual releases, Dr Nick Savage will unveil 1000 bottles each year, exclusively available at Bladnoch Distillery.
To cover the five years of releases, sufficient aged Bladnoch Single Malt has been set aside from a combination of sweet ex-Bourbon casks and intense Oloroso Sherry casks maturing in the archives. In year one, we will taste the whisky at the beginning of its maturation journey. Exquisite notes of lemon cake and dried apricot give this stunning first release a sweet freshness on the palate.
In each year that follows, the remaining liquid will be decanted into a new type of cask for a new layer of finishing where flavour and character will develop further. At the end of each year, Dr Nick Savage will assess how the whisky has matured and decide what the next cask type will be. This means our final Whisky is yet to be defined.
After a sellout Year One, Nick Savage's Master Distiller's Waterfall Release is back with Batch 02.
Continuing on the journey from Batch 01, the whisky has been taken out of the original Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon casks and refilled into Oloroso Sherry Puncheons developing new notes of treacle, dried apricots and hints of dark chocolate.
Please note, Batch 02 is limited to one bottle per customer.
For the very first time, Bladnoch Distillery has entrusted a select group of enthusiasts to decide the inaugural ‘Loch Maberry’ Cask. In a private tasting, 50 panellists discovered the rich flavours and individual maturation stories of three shortlisted casks, and finally cast their votes to determine which one would be bottled and released to the world.
Named after the water source of Bladnoch Single Malts, the Loch Maberry Cask is our way of sourcing inspiration from our fans.
After a turbulent 2020, where we needed to find new and unique ways to connect with each other, Bladnoch Distillery built the Loch Maberry Cask as a way to say thank you and make our fans a part of our story.
This final bottling is the cumulation of all 50 panellists’ input and experience.

Several years ago, the Bladnoch team were contacted by one of the most awarded wineries of central California. United by our love for the name meaning ‘rebirth’, SAMsARA Winery and Bladnoch have established a long term partnership.
With a small annual production of celebrated wines, Bladnoch is fortunate to have access to a handful of the winery's premium ex-Californian red wine barrels for the maturation of its whiskies. Now for the first time in the UK, we are giving you the chance to enjoy SAMsARA wines alongside our Californian red wine matured Whisky, ‘Samsara’.
The Samsara Gift Pack contains a bottle of 700ml Bladnoch Samsara Single Malt and your choice of SAMsARA Wines 750ml bottle of Pinot Noir, Syrah or Chardonnay.
