Auchroisk Sherry Cask

Exclusive Apollo 9
This is Like Spectacular

Auchroisk 10 Year Old 2010

Apollo 9 was the first of the Apollo Missions to perform a spacewalk prior to landing on the Moon. The two pilots famously photographed each other in space. The 10th bottling for the TWB Apollo series was distilled at Auchroisk distillery in Speyside. Matured in a first fill Pedro Ximenez sherry hogshead yielding 306 bottles. Big bang of chocolate coated coffee beans, meteoric ripe raisins, ecliptic warming spices; all free falling into a sweet marshmallow horizon and hyperbolic stewed plums. Expect meteoric ripe raisins, collocate coated coffee beans and hyperbolic stewed plums!

Auchroisk 10 Year Old 2010 vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whisky. On March 3rd, 1969, Apollo 9 launched from the Kennedy Space Center. The first full flight of an Apollo spacecraft with both Lunar Module and Command and Service Module. To mark this occasion we have bottled a single first fill pedro ximenez sherry hogshead  distilled in 2010 bottled April 2021. 306 numbered bottles exclusive to The Whisky Barrel.

During the mission the two pilots photographed each other whilst performing extravehicular activity. Russell Schweickart, the first astronaut to wear a portable life support system, emerged from Lunar Module callsign ‘Spider’ proclaiming “Hey, this is like spectacular!” and performed the only spacewalk prior to an Apollo lunar landing.
