After being founded by the Grant family in 1898, the distillery was mothballed for 65 years with only its floor maltings being used for the Longmorn distillery next door. Now in the hands of Billy Walker and his partners, it won Distillery of the Year from Malt Advocate magazine in 2007 and has received rave reviews for its peated and unpeated expressions alike.
Matured in the traditional style in American bourbon barrels, this whisky is then ‘finished’ in Pedro Ximinez sherry butts, sourced from the bodegas of Jerez de la Frontera in Andalucia, Southern Spain. During this second period of maturation, the whisky derives many interesting characteristics specific to the Pedro Ximenez butt.
