Limited to just 6,000 bottles from Scotland’s smallest distillery so grab yours now!  
Whilst this is a heavily peated Edradour, it has taken the Ballechin name from a dead distillery just down the road. Edradour itself is in fact the smallest distillery in Scotland, with the smallest possible legal stills that create a fine and distinct Whisky. 
 
This is the final release in Ballechin's The Discovery Series that has explored spirit ageing in interesting and unexpected casks. Having spent its life maturing in first fill Sauternes hogsheads, this is a very special wine-cask aged Highland Whisky to finish off the series.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
