Back to the future with a new Campbeltown winner.
Distilling in the Kintyre Peninsula dates back more than 400 years to 1609. The hamlet of Campbeltown was founded in 1832 and quickly became known as “The Whisky Capital of the World.” The era of Prohibition and the subsequent emergence of Highland Single Malt dominance ended the reign of Campbeltown. Glen Scotia is a more recent branding by the Loch Lomond Group in an effort to recreate the magic of Campbeltown’s bygone era.
Glen Scotia Double Cask is a classic Campbeltown Single Malt that ages first in first-fill ex-Bourbon Barrels and is finished in Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. This particular Whisky passes the taste bud test and is winning all kinds of awards — including a gold medals at the San Francisco Spirits Competition and at this year’s World Whisky Awards.
