Annandale Distillery. Established in 1836 and closing in 1918, this lowland distillery reopened it's doors and sprung back into action in 2014 producing scotch whisky after a 90 year break. Traditional chimney stack and pagoda roof, tie in the history of the buildings with the impressive, modern redevelopment. The Washbacks and Stills share an open plan room. Clean, crisp and bright room is in contrast to many darker, dustier and settled distillery counterparts. The Mash Tun. Where the grain and the water meet and mingle. This is where heating this mixture produces the sugars from the broken down barley grain's starch. From 'porridge' to a hot sugary liquid called Wort, this is drained and collected where it then moves to the wash-backs for fermentation. #scotch #whisky #lowland #whiskey #lostdistillery #founddistillery #annandale #distillerytour RT @malthound: Glendronach 25 Year Old Grandeur Batch #7 at The Whisky Barrel –... https://t.co/5xOvGXmp9L @WhiskyBarrel https://t.co/SkAT…

New July 2010 Releases

Posted by Alastair in Newsletters

A busy month for Glendronach with Batch 2 of their single cask series (Batch 3 will be available from September) and a fresh range of Wood finish expressions. New Port Ellen bottles from Douglas Laing and Duncan Taylor continue the worrying trend of final year of distillation releases of the lost Islay distillery. Plus four excellent Japanese expressions from Ichiro Akuto including a spectacular 23 year old Hanyu with a price tag to match. Glengyle, Dalmore, Glenfarclas and Gordon & MacPhail chip in with new bottles this month including North Port-Brechin and Lochside for their Connoisseurs Choice series.
