About the Distillery
Perthshire has been famous through the years for its small farm distilleries but now Edradour distillery is the last man (or lady) standing. It boasts to be Scotland’s smallest distillery and not just in size but in production also whisch makes the whisky so unique. The output from this distillery was once 600 litres per year but now it can produce up to 90,000 litres per year.
The name Edradour coming from the Gaelic ‘Edred dobhar’ meaning ‘the stream of King Edred’ who we believe may have been Pictish chieftain in the Dark Ages or a Roman legionaire who liked this very delicious malt whisky.
The distillery was founded in 1825 by local farmers and is currently owned by Signatory Vintage Scotch Whisky who purchased the distillery in 2002 from Pernod Ricard.
You should expect a creamy malt whisky with hints of mint, nuts and usually has a port or sherry influence.
