English distiller Copper Rivet has launched its first whisky, a single-estate produced expression.

Masthouse Single Malt Whisky is a 45%-abv English whisky matured in ex-Bourbon and virgin American white oak barrels. The liquid has been produced using malted barely from the Isle of Sheppey, near to Copper Rivet’s Kent distillery.

The company said that because its facility is in England, it has more flexibility than Scottish distillers in how the whisky is produced.

“Among the most significant differences between Scotch and English whisky is that England’s whisky distillers are not bound to using only certain types of casks and stills,” said head distiller Abhi Banik. “We have a big opportunity to be creative and innovative in the way we bring flavour through.”

Copper Rivet Distillery launched its first product, a gin, in 2016. Last year, the company released a strawberry-flavoured extension to the gin brand.
