Càrn Mòr teams with Wasted Degrees brewery on one-off expression

Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers has announced that the Càrn Mòr brand has teamed up with Wasted Degrees brewing to release a one-off whisky expression.

The original liquid was distilled in 2012 at Glen Ord Distillery and matured in bourbon barrels for nine years, before transferring to a Wasted Degrees porter cask for an additional year of maturation. The final bottling took place in July 2023 at cask strength.

Bottled at 54.8% ABV, the producers have described the liquid as having notes of orange marmalade on the palate with a hint of honeycomb on the finish.

The expression is limited to just 428 bottles at an RRP of £68.

Wasted Degrees co-owner and director Jack Low commented: “We are flavour explorers and the prospect of working with one of the country’s leading whisky makers was one we couldn’t miss! The beauty of this project is in the unknown, the alchemy of combining different materials, vessels, ingredients, drinks, to produce something of unique character. Much like single cask or limited release whisky bottlings, we take a similar approach to our range of beers: we only re-brew two of our recipes, and everything else is a one off – we’re here to explore together, confident in the journey ahead because of the quality of the brand and how the drink is produced.”

Conall Low, also co-owner and director at Wasted Degrees, added: “It was brewed with rich malts and then aged (post-fermentation) for 6 months in three different ex-Loch Lomond whisky barrels belonging to Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers. Owing to the beauty of the casks going on to season more whisky, the beer is now long gone, but its legacy is in the soul of this new and exciting whisky!”
