The First is composed of a selection of our finest Pedro Ximenez casks filled in 2016 (our first year of production), that have been carefully selected by our Founder and Master Distiller Darius Plazewski. Darius hand-picked these specific casks because of their exceptional characteristics – they’re elegant and layered, but still totally reflective of Bimber’s light, accessible and fruit-forward style. And remember, Bimber doesn’t use industry standard seasoned wood – all our sherry casks were used for several decades in Jerez soleras.
Only 1000 bottles of our historic London whisky have been produced. Each is bottled at 54.2% ABV and presented in an individually numbered, hand-crafted, oak box created by our on-site coopers.
We’re looking forward to raising a glass in thanks for your support over our first three years, and in celebration of Bimber’s bright future.

Bottle no. 282
Colour: Old oak
Nose: Pronounced, fresh and expressive. Stewed apples are joined by ripe red berries, charred mandarin segments and plump raisins. Natural sweetness from soft toffee merges with crumbly shortbread and crushed walnuts, whilst nutmeg and clove spices provide a balanced intensity.
Palate: Full-bodied with a viscous mouthfeel. Flame-scorched orange peels and jammy berry fruits are enriched with sultanas and sponge cake. Creamy vanilla toffee is enlivened by ginger and pepper spicing, whilst dark chocolate and leather offer further delectable depths.
Finish: Lingering pepper and nutmeg spices are sweetened with demerara sugar and bolstered by a touch of charred oak.
