Does it taste of Cheese?

We get asked this a lot and no is the answer! The whey is separated from the milk solids which go on to make the international award winning cheeses at the very start of the process, so it’s definitely not cheesy!

What does the whey bring to the experience? Why whey?

The whey is a quality, artisan bi-product which ends up getting wasted, first off thats a good reason to try to utilise it. We experimented by distilling it out with organic grain spirit and found that when we tasted the distillate, a delicate creaminess was left on the palate, improving mouthfeel and adding a unique and unforgettable element to the spirit. We regard the fresh whey as a botanical, just like juniper or fennel. It enhances the flavour.
