About Da Mhile (pronounced da-vee-lay)
John Savage-Onstwedder founded the brand in 1992 and commissioned Springbank Distillery to distil the spirit from organic barley and it was duly laid down to mature in ex-Bourbon Hogsheads. Some of the casks were bottled in time for the new Millennium under the Da Mhile brand as a 7 year old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky and is now highly sought after. The 25 Years Old should be even more precious.
John has since built his own distillery in Wales and is now producing his own gin and liqueurs on site, together with the dream of Organic Welsh Single Malt Whisky.
