Royal Brackla’s starting point for the Sherry finished Single Malt wonder.

In 1812, Captain William Fraser of Brackla House built his distillery on the grounds of Cawdor Castle — just a bit too far west to be considered a Speyside, so a Highlander it is. King William IV liked it so much he awarded them a "Royal Warrant" to keep him well supplied. Thus they became the Royal Brackla Distillery and have been called "The King’s Own Whisky" ever since. Queen Victoria renewed it in 1838. The turn of the century brought a series of acquisitions, mergers, and buy-out. It has been closed twice for major renovations and repairs, but has otherwise been in continuous operation. Formerly owned by Diageo, it became a part of the Bacardi portfolio when they acquired John Dewer & Sons in 2014.

There are three Spirits in the Royal Brackla line-up — and the twelve year-old is where they begin. Twelve years of primary aging does a world of good for this Single Malt. But that is not enough. Brackla finishes their Single Malts in premium, first-fill, Oloroso Sherry casks. And Brackla has been in such demand for blends like Dewers that they are a lesser-known brand among Single Malts. All that combines to make it a highest quality, luxurious dram and a great value.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Royal Brackla is one of only three distilleries that are allowed the "Royal" epithet in their title. The other two are Glenury Royal (now closed) and Royal Lachnager. All three of them are situated in the Highlands.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
