Cragganmore Single Malt Whiskey
John Smith established Cragganmore Distillery in 1869 in the heart of Scotland's Speyside whiskey region. This is a malt whiskey distillery equipped with four very short stills and is one of the few Scottish malt whiskey distilleries that continues to cool its new spirit in traditional worm tubs. The few distillery bottlings including Cragganmore 12 Year Old and Distillers Edition are well enhanced by those of independent bottlers.
