Sutcliffe and Sons
Sutcliffe & Son are a craft distiller. Don Sutcliffe has been Managing Director of Craft Distillers since 2004. Don works with Willie Phillips and Master Blender Bill Arthur in Scotland.
The Exceptional small batch scotch whisky was developed in three stages by Sutcliffe & Son. The first was a blended grain whisky The Exceptional Grain, its first bottling was in 2013. This was followed by The Exceptional Malt in 2015 and finally The Exceptional Blend later in 2015. Both the Exceptional Malt and the Exceptional Grain are available at Master of Malt for euro 93.05 now in 2018.
Once the blend has been decided, it will be finished off in first-fill sherry casks.
The Exceptional Blend – 1st Edition has whisky from the following distilleries: North British, Strathclyde, Cameronbridge, Glenfarclas, Ben Nevis, Allt-á-Bhainne, Auchroisk, Glenallachie, Westport, Speyside, Macallan, etc.
The Exceptional Blend comes in at 43% ABV and has a nice fruity sherry flavor to it.

It is available at Master of Malt for euro 93.05 for a 700ml bottle.
