A new bottle design for Paloma, a Palo Cortado range released by Goldfinch Whisky Merchants.

We created Paloma to show the expansive influence different types of sherries can have on a variety of single malt whiskies. By focusing on the Spanish connection in terms of art, sherry and the name; Paloma means ‘Dove’ in Spanish , we have created something that is beautiful, timeless and tastes incredible.

Palo Cortado is the rarest type of sherry with less than 100,000 bottles sold a year, compared to 60 million bottles of sherry overall.

Whisky is about a moment. It’s about listening and sharing. That is why Goldfinch Whisky chose the best quality Bodega casks that previously contained one of the rarest sherry varieties in the world to finish their first cask release.

It is a wonderfully complex wine which combines the delicate bouquet of an Amontillado with the body and palate of an Oloroso. It is deep and warm mahogany in colour with a complex nose that truly harmonises the characteristic notes of Amontillado and Oloroso. You will find citric notes reminiscent of bitter orange and lactic notes suggestive of fresh butter. It has a deep, rounded, ample palate with smooth, delicate aromatic notes appearing in the aftertaste, leading to delicious lingering finish.

The stunning artwork featured in the label was painted by Catalan painter Isidre Nonell in 1904. The painting is titled - La Paloma and the original is currently exhibited at the National Art Museum of Catalonia in Barcelona.
