It’s all happening in the East.

Glen Garioch is further East than any other distillery in Scotland and continues to produce Malt right next to one of the finest areas in the world for growing barley. Historians may argue this one but there’s every chance it was also Scotland’s first licensed distillery. Maybe not a coincidence given the incredible location. Since 1797 they have controlled their production to ensure that only the highest quality Scotch escapes their East coast home. Even today with a capacity to create a million liters of spirit every year they still spend a lot of their time producing less. With a turbulent past like many distilleries there were times when this lower production was a result of demand rather than choice but today the decision is purely to keep up with the quality standards.

A focus on limited production ensures that the core range of Glen Garioch remains relatively small and new batch releases rarely see the light of day. Occasionally however certain individual casks are too good to blend and are privately bottled for the special few. And you’ve guessed it, this is one of them. Age may not always be a sign of quality but sometimes you just have to sit back and respect the level of rich complexity that can be found in one sip of a Scotch that has matured for this length of time. If they are setting their standards this high for special releases then it is no wonder we rarely get to see them.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
In 1982, Glen Garioch became the first distillery ever to use North Sea gas for heating.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
