Ludlow Distillery, known for its premium and handcrafted English single malt whisky, is proud to announce the release of its latest edition – Cask Edition No. 5 Pedro Ximénez Sherry – on Thursday 18 May 2023. Shaun Ward, Master Distiller at Ludlow Distillery, has created a truly exceptional whisky that is sure to captivate the palates of whisky connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.

Sherry-cask finished whisky has always been a beloved choice among whisky lovers, and our recent Oloroso Sherry Cask edition sold out in minutes upon its release. Now, with Cask Edition No. 5 Pedro Ximénez Sherry, we are taking our single malt Ludlow Whisky to the next level. The classic Pedro Ximénez sherry is known for its rich aromas and complex flavours of raisins, dates, dried figs, and spicy notes with hints of chocolate. This unique taste profile makes it the perfect partner for cask finishing our ‘Distiller’s Cut’ English single malt whisky.

Shaun Ward, Master Distiller, shares his excitement about this new release, stating, ‘Our PX Sherry Cask Edition is a result of our passion for fine ingredients, refined craft, and patience. We carefully handcraft our whisky using the finest English and Scottish malted barley and purified water, the Scottish malt having been gently peated. We triple-distil our spirit and age it in second-fill Speyside casks, then cask finish in a specially selected ex-Pedro Ximénez sherry cask, creating a serious and perfectly balanced single malt. This new release represents a new style of cask finishing for our distillery. Laid down in limited quantities of only 400 bottles, it’s a highly sought-after addition to any whisky collection.’

One of the unique features of Ludlow single malt is its versatility when it comes to food pairing. As a self-proclaimed foodie, Shaun Ward explains: ‘Sherry cask whisky pairs exceptionally well with food that has similar flavours and aromas, such as dried fruits, nuts, and sweetness. It’s the perfect accompaniment to rich, savoury, and spicy dishes.’ Enjoying Ludlow Single Malt English Whisky Cask Edition No. 5 Pedro Ximénez Sherry is an experience that engages all the senses, from the aroma of the whisky to the symphony of flavours on the palate.

The release of Ludlow Single Malt English Whisky Cask Edition No. 5 Pedro Ximénez Sherry is truly an occasion to celebrate. This limited-edition whisky is a testament to Ludlow Distillery’s commitment to crafting exceptional and unique whiskies that are cherished by whisky enthusiasts around the world. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to experience the glorious trinity of fine ingredients, refined craft, and patience in every sip of Ludlow Whisky.
