Introducing the latest release from our Anniversary Collection, a limited-edition series of ultra-exclusive, solely hand-crafted whiskies celebrating the best of Hellyers Road Distillery. This is the second of four exclusive releases, and comprises just 190 bottles from our 2003 vintage.
Carefully curated casks containing some of our very first and finest distillations from our original bond store are selected for our Anniversary Series. Without compromise in quality, these rare casks have come alive with vigour and intensity of spirit - the perfect balance between cask strength and flavour. At Hellyers Road, we are merely guardians of such spirit, allowing the casks to dictate their release.
Picked from among our best casks in the Hellyers Road Long Term Maturation Project, this single malt is bottled at cask strength from premium American Oak (ex Bourbon Cask), and remains non-chill filtered with no colouring added.

Tasting note -
From an auburn hue with glimmers of golden ochre rises a nose of pink musk, vanilla pod and soft ripening peach skins, warmly supported by dried figs and toffee notes. Following these aromas is a palate of wild, earthy tones, led by fresh rainforest scents, and a herbal mosey of fragrant ice tea. Nuances of almond also feature, as well as buttered brioche with an uttering of prunes. The finish is modestly restrained and delicately defined.
-THE ARTWORK -
‘The Road – New Dawn’ features the second section of an artwork that was commissioned to explore the landscape of the Hellyers Road region and the changes it sees throughout each day, as well as over passing seasons and years.
