Located in the heart of Speyside, at the confluence of the rivers Fiddich and Spey, Craigellachie Distillery takes its name from the town of Craigellachie, which literally means rocky hill. Situated on a cliff that overlooks the river Spey, the town of Craigellachie dates back to the early 18th century, and the distillery itself was built by a group of blenders and merchants in 1891. Designed by then-famous architect Charles Doig, Craigellachie Distillery reflects the rustic, adventurous attitude of the mountains on which it was built, and has been described since its earliest days as old-fashioned. Craigellachie Single Malt Scotch Whisky is crafted from malted barley and pure spring water sourced from a spring on nearby Little Convall Hill. The malt is prepared in a wood-fired kiln before being triple-distilled through Craigellachies two spirit stills - finally, the distillery uses rare worm tub condensers to impart unusually strong flavors unto the whisky. Craigellachie has always been the problem child for us in thats its sulphury and meaty, says Stephen Marshall, a global marketing manager for the brand. Its difficult for other companies to take. Weve been sitting on stocks of it without realizing how good it was; its really good stuff. Craigellachie 13 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is part of the Last Great Malts Collection from Dewars, and it has been carefully selected by Master Blender Stephanie Macleod to showcase the very best of Craigellachies distinct character, which has been said to demonstrate the best elements of Speyside, both dark and light. The whisky has straw gold color and a bold, peppery aroma that is bolstered by stone fruits, cloves, vanilla and marshlands. The palate is hearty, filled with lively notes of melon, honeysuckle, toffee and burnt wood, and leads to a complex finish, with additional notes of charred oak, apricots and rustic earth.Gold Medal; San Francisco Spirits Competition, USA 2016
