A blended Whis-kay for each and every day.

The story goes that Ian Macleod was the immortal warrior Highlander's second cousin, twice removed... Just kidding. While they share the same clan name, the first isn't in the business of wielding swords and aerating the family jewels, but rather quality spirits. Ian Macleod Distillers is the home of many a brand including Glengoyne, Tamdhu, Isle of Skye, King Robert II, etc. The family-owned op has fought battles of its own, though. They've kept quality over quantity in the face of adversity — the big and bloated corporations, that is.

The accessible selection of Scotches that they've gathered under the banner of Shieldaig is named for the picturesque loch and nearby town. "Shieldaig" comes from Old Norse and stands for "The Loch of the Herring", but the place is more than just a fisherman's holiday getaway. Shieldaig 'The Classic' Blend is bottled there from a selection of malt & grain Whiskies and it's a well-balanced, pleasant, and easy everyday drinker.
