About this Caol Ila

This Single Malt was moved into a Pedro Ximénez Sherry Cask for finishing - an intensely sweet and dark sherry complimenting the Caol Ila perfectly. The PX cask underwent a special process called New Era Of Cask (NEOC), to bring out the full flavour profiles of the sherry cask into the whisky. They are the first and only company to use this process in Scotch whisky.

About Spiritfilled's Mythical Beast

The Qilin is a magical beast whose mythology combines the essence of Scotland with the spirit of Asia. Galloping through eastern forests, proudly sporting a majestic horn and with a wreath of divine flames coating its equine form, it mirrors the Unicorn, the national symbol of Scotland. Their distant familial ties interweave the sterling values of Scotland with the magic of Asia, representing wisdom, justice and truth. Legend has it that all who commune with the Qilin reap the rewards of its benevolent spirit, finding good fortune and prosperity. Rich in character and flavour, echoing ages past, the Qilin brings elements of ancient mythology into the modern age.

Meet The Founders

Russell Spratley and Ross Archer

Spiritfilled was founded by two entrepreneurial best friends, who both love whisky. Russell and Ross stared Spiritfilled as cask broker, helping clients around the world to buy and sell quality whisky casks.

As they explored the warehouses of Scotland, somethings Russell and Ross would discover a certain cask that they'd fall in love with. They couldn't part ways with these super special casks, and so decided to bottle these themselves. Mythical Beasts is their independent bottler label, under which they release their single cask whiskies.
