Shine on You Crazy Diamond.
Dufftown distillery was started in 1896 by two Liverpudlian entrepreneurs when a stone built saw and a mill was converted into a distillery. By the 1920s the distillery was doing great and had an expanding market in the US, however prohibition hit it badly and it was closed in 1933. In 1934 Arthur Bell bought the distillery, and it has been an important contributor to Bells blend ever since. The Dufftown distillery is the only one in Scotland malting all its own barley.
Singleton of Dufftown Sunray is a brand new release from Singleton, which was added to their core range alongside its brother Tailfire. The Sunray takes its name from a type of artificial fly used for salmon fishing and draws inspiration from the brand’s logo of a leaping salmon. A high percentage of Sunray’s Whisky has been matured in toasted American oak casks, although we don't know for how long as this is a no-age statment bottling. Sunray certainly bursts thorough the clouds and shines a light on Singleton in a very positive way.
