24 Days of Holiday Spirits – Day 11 – Caledonian 35 Year Old 1982 Sovereign

Only two weeks left to get your Christmas gifts sorted…

Struggling for inspiration? Read on!

For Day 11 of our 24 Days of Holiday Spirits we have something from a lost distillery in the Scottish Capital.

The Caledonian Distillery was founded in 1855 at Dalry, Edinburgh. It even had its own huge railway yard which sat beside the Edinburgh to Glasgow line. It closed in 1988 and the site was cleared and redeveloped for housing and business use.

The Caledonian 35 Year Old 1982 Sovereign is a single grain Scotch whiskey from this lost distillery. And what makes it special is that there are just 154 numbered bottles in this Sovereign series bottled by Hunter Laing & Co. in 2017.

Tasting notes

This whiskey is light gold in colour. It has a note of toffee and vanilla on the nose. On the palate it is zesty and sweet with hints of orange and caramel. The finish is soft and fruity.

The Caledonian 35 Year Old 1982 Sovereign would be a perfect dram to have with a mince pie on a cold winter evening.

Why not treat someone special this Christmas time? It is available to buy on our website.

And don’t forget that we also offer a great gift wrapping service so that you can have another mince pie!
