Limited to 1 bottle per member

We paddled a day on the Demerara which cuts a silvery path across the lush green landscape as we sat by the riverside in late evening placing clumps of heather (we brought them with us) on the embers of the campfire. On the palate, a sensationally sweet savoury smoke, tropical fruit salad and venison carpaccio with orange and horseradish – a fascinating combination. With a little water, slices of smoked coconut cheesecake were served, perfumed with musky, flowery aromas and flavoured with notes of caramel and smoke. After 14 years in an ex-bourbon barrel, we transferred this whisky into a refill barrel which previously held rum from Guyana.
