An upscale Single Grain Whisky from the famous Girvan Distillery.

Built in 1963 the Girvan Distillery is a silent work horse. William Grant & Sons owns the South Ayrshire, Scotland, distillery. Somewhat famously, the distillery was built in a hurry due to a quarrel between William Grant & Sons and a supplier — Distillers Company Limited (DCL). From ground break to production took a short nine months. They produce several Single Malt, Grain, and Blended Whiskies there in addition to Hendrick’s Gins. The fabulous Spirits shine even though the distillery flies under the radar of the industry press.

There are four Single Grain Spirits in Girvan’s portfolio. The Girvan Patent Still Proof Strength is the mighty strong-man of the set. This dram clocks in at 57.1% ABV. It has been aged in ex-Bourbon casks, and those casks do their work well — yielding powerful notes of vanilla, orange zest, and cinnamon to the flavor profile. It’s obvious that the folks at Girvan have something here, and they recognize it by treating it like a Single Malt with brilliant upscale package.

Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
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.
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.
The first spirit from the distillery ran in Christmas of 1963, as a memoir to William Grant, who managed to produce the first spirit of Glenfiddich, on Christmas day.
