This single grain whisky has been created at Edinburgh’s North British Distillery, made from maize instead of wheat. Having spent most of its life in a hogshead, our Whisky Creations Team filled this spirit into two fresh barrels from Koval Distillery that previously held American rye whiskey.
This interesting and unique maturation programme has introduced new flavours to the single grain category.
The sweetness of the North British grain combining elegantly with the savoury offerings of the rye cask, demonstrates that the Art of Maturation is key in the making of a fine whisky.



La distillerie North British 
C’est en 1885 que la distillerie de grain North British fut fondée par trois personnalités importantes du monde du blended scotch de l’époque : Andrew Usher, William Sanderson et John M Crabbie. Il s’agissait alors d’exercer un contre-pouvoir sur la toute jeune DCL constituée en 1877 ; une structure regroupant de très nombreuses distilleries et qui en contrôlait la production.
