Highland

The largest whisky producing region

The Scottish Highlands include the rugged and mountainous regions of Scotland north and west of the Highland Boundary Fault, although the exact boundaries are not clearly defined, particularly to the east. Much of the Scottish Highlands area overlaps the Highlands and Islands area.

The Islands region is often confused with Islay, but the Islands region is in fact a separate whisky producing region consisting of the islands of Arran, Jura, Mull, Orkney, Shetlands and Skye.

Stronachie 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

So ends the story of Stronachie, a distillery which rose out of the wilderness in the 1890s. Set in a desolate glen on the Perth-Kinross border it stood between bleak hills on an isolated road that toiled its way through the Ochill mountains. Stronachie Distillery produced a traditional Highland-style whisky until 1928 and during its four decades of production A.D. Rattray Ltd represented the brand in Scotland.

Glendronach Scotch Single Malt Peated (750ml)

In contrast to the traditional, non-peated character of the GlenDronach, this particular whisky has, unusually, been distilled using peated malted barley. The GlenDronach ‘Peated’ pays homage to the peat historically used to dry the malted barley in the traditional floor matlings during the early days of the distillery. The subtle peated notes in this intriguing expression complement the classic GlenDronach Highland character and the rich sherry notes drawn from the wood. APPEARANCE Vivid harvest gold. NOSE

Glengoyne Scotch Single Malt Cask Strength (750ml)

A big malty nose gives way to fresh-baked vanilla cookies. On the palate, the pepper comes in with a bang followed by baked apples. A touch of sweet banana candy on the finish. Digestive biscuits, ripe bananas and a hint of pepper. This is the taste of Scotland’s slowest distillation, matured in sherry casks crafted from European and American oak. It’s then bottled as tradition insists: at cask strength, un-chillfiltered.
