Description

Typically this grain whisky is predominantly used to develop blends. However after trying the samples we received, we were so impressed and felt we should release this as a single grain.

Distillery

Situated in Glasgow at the south bank of the River Clyde, Strathclyde Grain Distillery is owned by Chivas Brothers.

It was originally built in 1927, during a time of industrial depression and prohibition in the US.

However, despite this unstable start, the distillery has continued to grow from strength to strength, being rebuilt between 1973 and 1978 to increase production by 7 million litres per annum.

Cask Type

Bourbon Barrel – Cask Number 110036

Approximately 190 litres in size, bourbon barrels are sent over from America after they have been used to mature bourbon whiskey. Before they are used however, they are toasted or charred on the inside. This process caramelises the wood sugars and influences the spirit with distinctively sweet tastes such as caramel and vanilla.
