Very long lasting with an enduring sweetness.

  • OUR UNIQUE AND PIONEERING SOLERA PROCESS

    Developed by our fifth Malt Master, David Stewart, the Solera process was inspired by the sherry-makers of Spain. Individual casks are hand-chosen for their flavour before being married in a specially constructed Solera Vat, producing a single malt Scotch whisky that's incredibly complex and rich. The vat is always kept half full throughout the process, ensuring a balanced and consistent flavour.

  • THE HUSHED TONES OF WAREHOUSE 8

    The calm, peaceful, even reverent atmosphere of Warehouse 8, home to our Solera Vat, is a must-see on any visit to our Distillery. For ten, twenty, thirty, in some cases over fifty years, some of our most precious casks rest here, developing character in the quiet warehouse. To create our Cask Collection, we've built three new Solera Vats, one for each expression -- the perfect anniversary gift to a Warehouse that celebrates its 60th birthday this year.

  • SHERRY CASKS FOR PERFECTION

    To create our Reserve Cask edition, our Malt Master, Brian Kinsman carefully hand-selects individual sherry casks, reserved for their mellow and rich flavour characteristics which are then married in limited batches in our unique Solera Vat. The hand-selected sherry casks impart layers of warm vanilla, deep rich fruits and subtle oaky tannins for a truly rewarding single malt.
