HELLâ€™S YEAH TO POCKET FULL OF STONES FIRST CORNISH WHISKY
Legend tells of the devilâ€™s ambition to take Cornwall for himself. One day while looking out to the east, the archangel St Michael caught sight of a fire-breathing dragon flying towards Cornwall possessed by the devil himself. The dragon carried a red-hot boulder in its claws right from the fires of hell. A legendary aerial battle ensued, armed with a sword of pure fire St Michael struck the dragon a mighty blow. Through the sky, the stone tumbled, and the place where it fell became known as Hellâ€™s Stone or Helston. To this day, the villages celebrate the victory of their patron saint, and it holds a special place in local hearts.
The Pocket Full of Stones whisky-making process starts with creating the best possible craft beer, a beer that you would love to drink and that would not be out of place on tap at the best craft beer bars in the world. Next, they distil using Jackson, thier handmade copper pot still. Finally, the young whisky is aged in used oak barrels in the shadow of St Michaelâ€™s Mount. The evaporation during the aging process is poetically referred to as the angelâ€™s share â€“ in this case, with their supernatural neighbour watching over the barrels, it is hard to argue that he hasnâ€™t earned it! So what name would be more fitting than one associated with the legend of the dragon and the archangel?
Honeyed grains with a slight hint of caramel.
