Sherry, Sherry baby, can you come out tonight?

Distilling in the Kintyre Peninsula dates back more than 400 years to 1609. In 1832, the Scotia Distillery of Campbelltown became one of the 29 thriving distilleries in the area and the hamlet quickly became known as "The Whisky Capital of the World". The era of Prohibition and the subsequent emergence of Highland Single Malt dominance, however, ended the reign of Campbelltown. Today, the number of distilleries in the area is back up to 3. Reopened in 1933 as Glen Scotia and changing hands multiple times, the historic distillery was acquired by the Loch Lomond Group in 2014 in an effort to recreate the magic of Campbelltown’s bygone era, and they are doing a darned good job of it too.

Recently, the wizards at Glen Scotia unveiled a new 11YO Sherry Double Cask Finish expression. Originally matured in premium, first fill ex-Bourbon barrels, this unpeated Single Malt happily marries the best of Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso Sherry in combination of first fill Hogsheads. An intriguing menage a trois, this one, with the combination of casks accentuating the fruit characters, balanced with the beloved characteristics of Campbeltown. Bottled at cask strength, the rich velvety moutfeel is guaranteed to melt even the toughest Whisky critic's heart. Now excuse us, we'll be singing the 1962 The Four Seasons #1 hit all night long in the company of this limited edition bottle.

Glen Scotia is actually a town building, like the other Campbeltown distillers.
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.
Glen Scotia's standard bottling was a 14YO. However, it was exchanged with a 12YO bottle in 2015.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
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.
