How Does Charring and Toasting Affect Our Whisky?
Crafting the best spirit needs patient control over the toast and char of the wood used in maturation vessels. At Spirit Thief Distilling Co, we trial different char, and toast levels in our casks for each one of our releases, allowing for different personalities to be imparted into the whisky, tailoring to each unique flavour profile. The simple art of charring and toasting, accentuating the nature of the wood itself to create the perfect union between wood and whisky.
The method for charring and toasting barrels differ in the amount of heat that is applied, and how. Charring occurs at a much higher temperature compared to toasting, and both accomplish different things. We apply both methods to our casks, and at different levels, find the personality and flavour profiles we require for each of our distinct offerings.
Guard your honour… honour your spirit.
