Scotch was born of a painful requirement for patience. Ours is aged in white oak barrels for a minimum of ten years. If it's too old, the oak flavour picked up in the barrel mellows into the same tasting notes as the birch our toothpicks are cut from.
Made from a recipe we created in 2011 and continue to tweak to this day Single Malt No.16 is about the subtle balance of Islay, single malt and top quality birch.
Be patient with this blend, it's boozy, peaty flavour - from a 200-year-old distillery - requires time on the tongue to warm and reveal.
"...A mate has slipped me a couple of your whisky toothpicks back here in London. They’re amazing." - Luke, London UK
As a general rule we like to under-promise and over-deliver - with this in mind each bottle has a minimum of a dozen toothpicks.
Painstaking to capture in a sliver of wood, our Select blends are made with barrel aged spirits, in a process unique to Daneson, that flashes away the alcohol and leaves the essence of a spirit - botanicals, extracts and phenols - deep in our birch lumber.
R&D has focused not only on improving this process, but also releasing new spirit blends. Keep an ear to the ground on this one - we have more to come…
It’s easy to mix and match different blends with our new 2-Packs. Each pack is a pairing of two flavors that go together like peas in a pod. A great way to mix and match different blends.
The following 2-Pack combinations are available:
A bottle of Salted Birch No.8 and our NEW blend Matcha Mint No.28 ~ Matcha Mint No.28 is a mix of matcha green tea extract and several mint varietals. Both are Traditional Blends, made with natural premium botanicals.
Our Two-Finger Leather Case adds a further touch of respectability to your Daneson's. It's also excellent for keeping your sticks snug and safe from run-ins with wayward objects.
Made by a saddler named Sean with wax stitched vegetable tanned heavy cow hide. This leather work is distinct because it is made through a time-consuming process called wet-molding that results in a work of art that is difficult to keep in stock due to demand.
Over time, each case will turn from blond to a golden hue, picking up the character of the owner. Likewise, the leather will stretch and work in over time.
Each case ships with two bottles of toothpicks.
Made by hand in Canada.
