Storywood Tequila Speyside Reposado 70cl

The founder of Storywood, Michael Ballantyne, was born in Scotland and raised in Texas, but returned to Scotland to work in the gas and oil industry when he was older. However, this was not a fulfilling occupation for him and would increasingly go visit his mum who lived in Mexico, dreaming of opening a whisky bar. During his research for his project, he met maestro tequilero Luis Trejo, distilling at La Cofradia distillery in Jalisco. Together they discovered the similarities between Tequila and whisky production and pooled Luis' talent of agave distillation with Michaels knowledge of ageing in oak. Normally only bourbon barrels are used for ageing agave spirits rather than the variety of oak used to age whisky - hence the idea of ageing in Scotch whisky barrels was born. The hand-selected single malt barrels are from the Speyside region.

Drinking suggestions are with Ginger Beer, Coca Cola, or Irn Bru. Served in a tall glass with ice and a lime wedge!
