Linkwood is light floral whisky and considered one of the best among its brethren. Well-known whisky critic, Michael Jackson, a former admirer of this drink, claimed that its taste is like a mixture of rose water and cherry. It combines all the qualities necessary for a classic drink: sweet malt, fruit notes, and traditional smokiness.

For further maturation, we used wonderful rose wine Marsala cask. Marsala wine was born in the eponymous West Sicilian port town in 1773. A method, similar to Spanish Criaderas y Solera, was used in the production of this wine. Here it was called “Perpetuum” and consisted of topping new wine into barrels with old wine.

The modern style of Marsala fortified wine was created by English merchant John Woodhouse. When he arrived in Sicily, at the port of Marsala, he tasted local dry and semi-dry wines. To bring his favorite wine to his native England, Woodhouse added brandy to it. That’s how Marsala wine we know today, was produced. Already in 1776, Wodehouse created his own production, and Marsala deserved the fame of “English wine”. In 1798, after the battle of Aboukir, admiral Nelson ordered a large batch of wine from Woodhouse. He liked Marsala so much that he recommended the Commander-in-Chief of the Fleet, lord Craig, to include it in the daily diet of sailors. And after the victory in the Battle of Trafalgar, the British began to call Marsala “wine of victory.”
