We have been blending Old Scotch Whisky at the Old Brewery in Bridport, Dorset for more than 100 years. To create Golden Cap, we take equal proportions of Glen Grant Malt Whisky and North British Distillery Grain Whisky. Next, we blend in fine spring water from the Dorset hills. We use French cognac barrels that date from the early 19th century for this. Age and maturity come together as the blend is left to marry for three weeks. Then it is bottled at Palmers Brewery.
A landmark whisky deserves a landmark name! Golden Cap – with its distinctive yellow sandstone summit – is famously the highest point on the South Coast of England, dominating the Jurassic Coast and close to our Brewery’s home in Bridport. What better name for our golden blend.
