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 @isleofislay: The Islay Daily Newspaper is out! https://t.co/aStAyOvbdW #islay #news Stories via @ScotsMagazine @WhiskyBarrel @Netweather

New Products 25th March 2011

Posted by Alastair in New Products

Another big duty increase on Scotch whisky this week - now is the time to buy before the extra tax filters through into our stock. Gordon & MacPhail continues the Glenlivet theme with the release of Private Collection Decades; these highly desirable 19-56 year old casks are on very tight allocations so one bottle each. A new cask of peated Sprinbank from the Berrys' Own series and a whopping 41 year old 1969 vintage Caperdonich from Duncan Taylor's warehouse. Plus the first 2011 release from Kichoman is on the way.
