Holyrood Distillery release Japanese Sake Yeast New Make

Edinburgh-based Holyrood Distillery has released a special Japanese Sake Yeast New Make Spirit.
The new Japanese yeast concept has been developed by Distiller, Conor O’Keeffe who commented: “While reading ‘On the production Methods of Pot Still Whisky’ by Masataka Taketsuru, I was inspired by his comparisons between Sake and Whisky production and it led us to look into some of the yeasts used in sake making. We quickly settled on Sake #7 for its distinct strawberry notes and the wonderful full texture. It’s combining two very ancient traditions to create something totally new.” 
Established in 2019, Holyrood is Edinburgh’s first single malt distillery since 1925. According to the Distillery with each new release the distillery is keen to set the standard as new wave Scotch makers who aren’t afraid to experiment outside of the traditional whisky-making sphere.
