Built in 1891, Craigellachie Distillery sits in the heart of Speyside.  To cool down the alcohol vapors after distillation Craigellachie uses traditional worm tubs as only few distilleries still do.


Worm tubs are an old-fashioned condensing system, an intestine-like ring of metal coils submerged in cold water. It is through these coils that the spirit is passed and cooled slowly, resulting in a curiously meatier spirit.


The whisky-making water itself is taken from a spring on the nearby hill of Little Conval and collected in the large Blue Hill dam.


Craigellachie takes its malted barley from a particular oil-fired kiln in Glenesk, which is what lends desirable sulphur to the spirit and adds to its famed heavy character.


Thanks to this heritage, Craigellachie is an ambitious and singular whisky which can be tasted just as you prefer.

Nose: first thing that comes to mind is that it’s very meaty and chewy, some nuts and cream, struck matches air and fire, light and fresh sulphur and it’s intertwined with apples and light fruits sweetness and overall a very fresh and gentle nose. With time, the suplhur and matches get stronger but still mild and sweet.

Palate: nuts, malt, sulphur and sweet apples

Finish: sweet apples (and bit of cloves) at first which turns to gentle sweetness.
