Craigellachie 13 Years Old Gift Box + 2 Glasses 70cl 46°
Craigellachie invites you to discover his Single Malt 13 years in a beautiful gift box containing two glasses. This expression is a success with its unique character between maturity and youth of spirit.
Gold-coloured, this Craigellachie offers a fresh and floral nose. The palate is dense, with flavours of apples pitted with baked cloves.
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.
