Authentic, aged Tullibardine Single Malt finished in casks that held Bourbon AND craft Ale.

Alexander Murray is an independent bottler founded by Steve Lipp in 2004. The company is named after his great uncle who inspired Steve’s love of Malt Whisky, introducing him to the Spirit many years ago ― and also possessing a name with a much more Scottish ring to it. And although Alexander Murray operates out of California these days, they focus on Scottish Single Malts with an honest passion of seeking out the rare casks that make up their signature blends and special edition releases.

David Walker is co-founder of Firestone Walker Brewery. They’ve been aging some of their craft Beers in ex-Bourbon casks for quite a while. He and his wife Polly were having dinner with Steve Lipp of Alexander Murray and the trio hatched an idea. Polly had filled a batch of those Bourbon barrels herself and the time was coming to bottle up the Ale. They decided to send those ex-Bourbon/ex-Beer barrels all the way to Scotland’s Tullibardine Distillery to be filled with aged Single Malt for finishing.

That’s the tasty story behind Alexander Murray & Co. Polly's Casks. It’s time for you to taste the result.

Corner
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).

Jonathan
Jonathan,
Very different than other whiskeys. Complicated and requires a little more attention than a normal bottle. Not an every day drink, but intriguing enough to keep me coming back.

A damn fine bottle of scotch.
 
Jordan
Jordan,
Oaky and grassy. Not a lot to it.
