Aberlour Casg Annamh Batch 1 Single Malt Scotch Whisky - Spirits Worth Raising

Aberlour Casg Annamh Batch 1 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Situated at the confluence of the Lour and Spey Rivers in Strathspey, Aberlour Distillery was founded in 1879 by James Fleming. Fleming, who was the son of a local tenant farmer, ultimately became a grain dealer in the middle of the 19th century. At the time, he counted a number of whisky distilleries as his customers, and after purchasing more barley than he was able to sell, Fleming decided to open a distillery himself.In 1898, a fire consumed much of Aberlour Distillery and its inventory of whisky. Following its destruction, the distillery was rebuilt under the supervision of Charles Doig Scotlands foremost expert of whisky distilleries at the time. While the composition of the distillery and its equipment has inevitably been altered over the past century, Aberlours commitment to traditional craftsmanship and quality single malt whisky has remained unchanged.Aberlour Single Malt Whisky is made exclusively from Scottish barley, which is malted for approximately seven days before being dried above an unpeated kiln. Once the barley has been dried, it is milled and mashed with water drawn from St. Drostans Well. The well, which has been the distillerys source for water for over a century, was named after a missionary who used water from the well to baptize inhabitants in 580 AD. After the barley has been mashed, it is fermented before being twice-distilled through Aberlours copper-pot stills. The stills enjoy broad bases to expose as much direct heat as possible to the wash and are equipped with swan-shaped necks which capture only the purest vapors during distillation.Gaelic for "rare cask this Aberlour release is part of the Aberlours Casg Annamh series.
