The style of the Whisky of Mannochmore distillery : Fresh, floral and dry. Appetizer. (Michael Jackson)
C’est un peu au sud d’Elgin, à proximité de la distillerie Glenlossie que se trouve la distillerie Mannochmore.
Le premier Mannochmore mis en bouteille en Single malt est commercialisé en 1992 c’est un 12 ans d’âge dans la série Flora & Fauna.
En revanche, de nombreux embouteilleurs indépendants furent plus chanceux. De temps à autre, on voit surgir sur le marché le produit de nouveaux embouteillages Mannochmore.
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.
