Character single malt whisky from the island of Sylt
When it came to realising the idea of this ‘northern light’, there was one difficulty: a storage location for the casks filled with the ageing distillate on the island of Sylt was virtually unaffordable. At Alexander Sievers’ suggestion, a historic cutter was purchased, lovingly restored and christened the ‘Angels’ Share’. The ship is anchored in Germany’s most northerly harbour, in List on Sylt, where it serves as a storage location for the upcoming SILD Crannog whisky.
This makes it the world’s only whisky to be stored on a ship. The whisky is influenced not only by the different temperatures during the three-year ageing period, but also by the salty sea air and the steady rocking of the ship that keeps the contents of the 100-litre casks constantly in motion and in contact with the wood.
