While the practice of maturing whiskey in sherry casks isn’t as long‐standing as peated whiskies, it has become a standard of old world sensibilities. We celebrate this custom by filling hogsheads and butts sourced from the same region the Scottish find their casks. But what we do with them differs. Again, our five‐malt spirit plays a significant role, allowing us to balance the sherry influence with our local malted barley flavor. We have our sherry casks shipped whole, which is unusual in the business of whiskey. This provides a sherry character that is still incredibly vibrant in this whiskey, but we always ensure the barley notes have an equal voice, something rarely done in Scotland.

In 2010 we set out to bring a new and distinctly American voice to the world of single malt. Each of the whiskeys in our Heritage Collection exhibit the fundamental intention of the Westland house style that emerged in those early days: a balanced, barley-forward whiskey that honors tradition but also moves it forward in a new way. All are made from 100% malted barley, fermented with a unique Belgian Saison Brewer’s yeast and matured in a variety of cask types—leading to new and distinctly American flavor profiles. From that starting point, each expression offers a variation of a house style that departs from expected conventions of single malt whiskey in their own way.

Ten years later we continue the pursuit but our whiskeys and house style has evolved. The Heritage Collection stands now as our opening statement on the world of single malt as it existed a decade ago. Today the landscape is different. The American Single Malt Whiskey category has set firm roots. A renaissance in raw materials is afoot. Terroir in whiskey is being embraced rather than denied. New possibilities are being explored worldwide.
