Tasting Notes


This light gold whiskey has a nose of vanilla at the start, followed by peaches, rhubarb and stewed prunes. Rich and smooth on the palate with vanilla initially, but toffee apples, butterscotch and orchard fruits appear slowly. The finish is long and dry with a sweet, slightly oaky note.



North British Distillery

North British Single Grain Whisky

North British Distillery was established on farmland to the west of Edinburgh in 1885 by Andrew Usher, John M. Crabbie and William Sanderson. Since then the city has expanded ever outwards and now the distillery resides in the Gorgie area of Edinburgh. North British opened in 1887 to guarantee supplies of grain whisky for its owner’s cordials and scotch whisky blending businesses. It is equipped with four Coffey stills to produce grain spirit at 94.5% alcohol and multi-million litres of spirit annually. Whilst most of its whisky matures in racked warehouses in the central Lowlands, a small number of casks spend at least eight years at the distillery in dunnage Warehouse No.1. Official releases are very few but excellent independent ones are available from Hart Brothers and Hunter Laing.
