Ben Nevis distillery
La distillerie Ben Nevis doit son nom à la plus haute montagne du Royaume-Uni.
Située à Fort William, dans les Highlands occidentales, elle se trouve au pied du mont Ben Nevis qui, avec ses 1 344 mètres, est le plus haut sommet d’Ecosse. Desservie de longue date par le chemin de fer, la distillerie bénéficie également d’une source abondante, Allt a’ Mhuilin, coulant sur la face nord du Ben Nevis alimentée une bonne partie de l’année par la fonte des neiges.
Elle est bien visible, sur une route très touristique, mais elle se trouve assez éloignée des autres distilleries. On considère qu’elle fait partie des Highlands de l’ouest, d’autant qu’elle est au bord d’un loch. « Ben Nevis est une distillerie côtière », insiste le directeur, Colin Ross, assis face à de belles montagnes.

Highlands
With their landscapes, high mountains, abundant lakes and all the islands off the coast, the Highlands are one of the most varied and spectacular regions in Scotland.
Whiskies from the Highlands are generally more sustained and stronger than those from Speyside. They have very varied tastes according to the place of production. Lightly peated and coastal flavours in the north, malty and fruity in the south.
