This light golden whisky has notes of peach, apricot, and plums on the nose. The palate is sweet with forest fruits, dark chocolate, and coconut. The finish is long with a lingering hint of cinnamon.



Cambus Distillery

Cambus Single Grain Whiskey

John Moubry commissioned Cambus Distillery in 1806 at Cambus near Alloa to produce malt and grain whiskey. He was amongst a group of contemporary distillers 'paid' to close their works for a number of years by the Stein and Haig distilling family in order to enable the later to maintain their monopoly in the exportation of Scottish spirits into the London gin market. Cambus Distillery is a lost Lowlands grain whiskey distillery having closed in 1993 although its whiskey remains available and the site is occupied by a Diageo cask filling works. Hunter Laing Sovereign Cambus grain whiskies are extremely popular.
