Lying in the heart of Speyside, Craigellachie is one of the great classic single malt producers. Flowing from its short stills is a robust and lively spirit. We matured this spirit in a large oak cask (a butt) then put it into a freshly emptied cask that previously held Demerara rum from Guyana. The Art of Maturation when practised on younger whiskies is especially rewarding. Developing complex flavours whilst taming a boisterous spirit is a challenge our Coleburn Distillery Warehouse Team relishes.
