The first US exclusive bottling from Scotland's greenest distillery and best-kept secret.

The Ardnamurchan peninsula is a place to behold. A wonderfully remote “finger” of rocky land that stretches out to the furthest westerly point of Scottish Highlands just south of the Isle of Skye, it is an outstanding and untouched piece of natural beauty, full of natural resources.

No wonder this "best kept secret in the British Isles" became home to the Ardnamurchan distillery.

Opened in 2014, the distillery lies halfway along the peninsula in the small village of Glenbeg. Since its inception, it was designed to fit in with its surroundings, committing itself to sustainable production using exclusively renewable local energy sources: the river that provides the distillery’s cooling water has a hydro-electricity generator, the biomass boiler is fuelled by woodchip from local forestry, and the still energy-rich draff (what’s left in the mash tun) is combined with the pot ale to produce animal feed for use on the peninsula.

The distillery produces two signature styles of Spirit, one peated and one unpeated, designed to create an overall flavor profile that is true to the West Highland region.

The Ardnamurchan Single Malt AD/03.21:02 comprises an equal proportion of peated and unpeated malt, aged in 65% ex-Bourbon and 35% Oloroso Sherry casks and bottled at 46.8% without chill-filtration or color additions of any kind. Exhibiting the classic Highland character, this is the first US release and bottled exclusively for this market, so grab your chance to grab one!

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
