Full Flight is the final expression of The Cardrona Single Malt Whisky coming of age. Aged for seven (7) years in a marriage of specially selected ex-Oloroso Sherry butts and ex-Bourbon barrels. Previous expressions were "Growing Wings" and "Just Hatched".
They say that great whisky is like a fine piece of art, and Desiree, the beating heart of Cardrona Distillery, has taken the same time, dedication and love to create their whisky as she would an artistic masterpiece.
With nothing but pure determination and a dream to create a single malt whisky that stands tall on the international stage, Desiree traveled the world, worked with masters such as Dave Pickerall, and brought the secrets of fine whisky back from Scotland and the USA to land amongst the mountains of the Cardrona Valley.
Desiree insists that the location of the distillery has just as much effect on the final product as any combination of ingredients and aging processes, which means that every whisky from Cardrona Distillery is laced with their signature pure ingredients, fresh mountain air, and a taste for adventure. A unique, timeless drop for lovers of finer things.
