Three Bimber ‘Country Collection’ single cask releases have been created for the United States marketplace exclusively. They will be available starting on March 2021 for around $160 per 750 ml bottle.

“It is a pleasure to be working with Raj and Glass Revolution Imports to introduce our London single malts into the US,”  Dariusz Plazewski, Founder and Master Distiller of Bimber Distillery, said in a prepared statement. “We’re thrilled to already see such a high level of interest in Bimber and are looking forward to creating further expressions for American whisky drinkers to explore in the future.”

Each of the three casks were selected to showcase what’s said to be the Bimber spirit’s versatility. They were also each crafted using a variety of traditional methods, such as long, open-topped fermentation and direct fire stills. 

Raj Sabharwal, Founding Partner of Glass Revolution Imports added, “We are honoured to be selected to import Bimber London Single Malt Whisky. Bimber’s passion and dedication partners with our focus on importing world class whiskies. We are excited to add Bimber to our portfolio of Inspired Spirits.” 

The Three Bimber ‘Country Collection’ single cask releases all have a unique personality that was influenced and enhanced by the style of the cask that it has been matured in. You’ll find more official information on each, including tasting notes, below.
