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.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
For a brief time in the 1930s, famous New York mobster Frank Costello -- leader of the Mofioso Luciano Crime Family -- managed to "convince" a few farmers to "sell" him their majority interest in the distillery.
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.
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.
