Though it may look difficult to pronounce (and it certainly does take us a second every time to make sure we’ve written it correctly), Craigellachie is actually rather simple and fun to say; craig-ELL-ack-ee. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Their whisky is also rather exciting indeed - did you know that they’re one of the few distilleries to continue using a worm tub to cool the vapours once they come out of the still? It’s part of what makes their whisky so deliciously meaty! If you take a look at the label for our Craigellachie you can see a very accurate picture of a worm tub, complete with giant worm on top... Sorry, what’s that? … Worm tubs don’t actually have giant worms attached to them, they just kind of look like worms a bit? … Oh.
Nose: A summery scent of a garden fruit salad: strawberries, raspberries and a sprinkle of sugar.
Taste: A warm oak spice that gives way to a vanilla sweetness dipped in malted milk biscuits.
Finish: A smooth peachy and creamy finish with a hint of barley.
