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…

A must have sherry matured 21 year old Laphroaig from Douglas Laing oozes quality and accompanies two further new Old & Rare bottlings: Macallan 33 Year Old and a Port Ellen 30 Year Old, with the latter normally only available at Duty Free lounges. Keep a keen eye on this page over the next few weeks - Bruichladdich and Glendonach launch more new bottles shortly. The August Whisky Barrel newsletter can be found here.
