General style of Dailuaines: Dailuaine is one of the lesser known brands, as the whisky is almost exclusively integrated with Johnnie Walker blends.
Whisky is very fond and greedy. He shows an original fruity and also reveals floral notes, notes of apple and vegetable as well as astounding earthy notes and spice.
Située entre les cours d’eau Ben Rinnes et Spey, la distillerie Dailuaine est voisine de Carron et d’Aberlour. Elle est aussi à proximité immédiate de la distillerie Imperial….
En 1987, Dailuaine est racheté par United Distillers, pour devenir après part du groupe Diageo.
Dailuaine compte parmi les nombreuses distilleries de la vallée de la Spey qui, autrefois, disposaient d’un arrêt de chemin de fer pour les ouvriers et les visiteurs, pour décharger l’orge et le malt, et pour charger le whisky.
Dailuaine fait partie des marques les moins connues,car son whisky est presque exclusivement intégré aux blends Johnnie Walker.
The Bottler Hunter Laing – Douglas of Drumlanrig
Hunter Laing – a new company …… since the third generation
Although recently established and operational, Hunter Laing is a continuation of 60 years of experience and mastery in the Whisky.
Stewart Laing did give his middle name, Hunter, to form the name of the Company : Hunter Laing where he is joined by his sons Andrew and Scott, who brought in their own independent bottling company and its brand First Editions in Hunter Laing .
We are pleased to announce that the Douglas of Dumlanrig, First Editions, Sovereign, Hepburn’s Choice and Distiller’s Art in whisky and Kill Devil in single cask bottlings of Rum make part of the portfolio La Boutique du Chemin.
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
