Ardnamurchan Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Glenberg, Scotland (750ml)
Producer Notes ~ "Our Single Malt whisky comprises an equal proportion of peated and unpeated malt. The cask makeup is 65% ex bourbon barrels from Kentucky and 35% ex sherry casks, Oloroso and PX, from Jerez. A true reflection of our rugged Western Highland location, the whisky boasts notes of oyster shell, campfire embers, waxy peel, honeycomb, strawberries with black pepper and a lingering maritime finish. Bottled at 46.8% vol, unchill-filtered and naturally coloured.
The Ardnamurchan Distillery opened in July 2014 to begin the process of producing what will eventually become world-class single malt. The Ardnamurchan peninsula is a wonderfully remote “finger” of rocky land that stretches out to the furthest westerly point of the UK, just to the north of the Isle of Mull, and south of the Isle of Skye.It is accessed initially by a small ferry, and then by a narrow and twisty single track road. It’s famous for its outstanding and untouched beauty and abundance of natural resources. The Ardnamurchan Distillery is situated half way along the peninsula in the small village of Glenbeg. It was designed to both look like a distillery, and also fit in with the surrounding buildings."
