Allt A’Mhullin 2002 Aged 15 Years Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Roslin Distillers Ltd
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46% Age: 15 Years Old Country: Scotland
The stream descending from the northern slopes of Scotland’s highest mountain Ben Nevis in the Lochaber district of Highland Council Area is named Allt a’ Mhuilinn (meaning the stream of the mill). It flows northwest, then west, for 4½ miles (7 km) to enter the River Lochy to the northeast of Inverlochy. It once provided the water to make whisky at the Ben Nevis Distillery however its waters are now mostly captured by the Lochaber Hydro Electric Scheme.
Roslin Distillers are family owned independent bottler situated in Lochaber, on Scotland’s west coast near Fort William. The company was set up by Colin Ross (former Ben Nevis Distillery Manger) and his son Aaron Ross with the family to support them. The name Roslin taken from the name of Colin’s local home. This was a project that Colin and Aaron had worked on for quite some time, they developed the products together, agreed on the marketing and even designed the packaging together. When we talk about family owned businesses you certainly don’t find any independent bottlers as family driven as Roslin Distillers.
This is the first release from new bottlers Roslin Distillers. The spirits was taken from the Ben Nevis Distillery and matured in refill American oak ex Bourbon barrels for around 10 years. It was then transferred into a fresh sherry butt to mature for a further 3 years. The spirit was then given a final maturation in refill port pipe for 3 years. It was bottled in September 2018 as a fifteen year old single malt Scotch whisky.
