The team at the Spirit of Garstang have teamed up with a small cask distillery in Scotland to build their new cask aged whisky. Our latest single malt Scotch Whisky has been a true labour of love already having Scottish family roots, but also working with the Distillery to achieve a complex range of limited edition malt whiskies.
This has now been bottled at 40% in 700ml bottle using the fresh water from Loch Katrine and is 12 years old.
Balblair 2013 (8YO)
Balblair Distillery is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. Although officially recorded as being founded in 1790 by John Ross, whisky (and beer) are rumoured to have been made in that location for many years prior. The distillery lies in Edderton in the Northern Highlands, surrounded by rugged mountains making it also one of the prettiest distilleries in Scotland. Its location is reputed to have the cleanest air in Scotland.
Distilled on 15th October 2013 and filled to a single ex-bourbon barrel (#1931), this whisky was matured for more than 8 years prior to bottling. Reduced to 40% with fresh water from Loch Katrine, the whisky was filtered to remove any chill haze. The colour is natural, from the interaction of spirit and wood alone.
