Ardnamurchan AD/ Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 46.8% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
Located on the most westerly point of the British mainland sits the Ardnamurchan Distillery. Probably one of the most sustainable distilleries in the United Kingdom if not the world, plenty of thought has been given to the environment before designing and developing this distillery. There’s a local hydro-electric generator that provides the cooling water and local forest wood chips that are used to heat the hot water for mashing. The draft left behind after the mash is used to feed local cattle and the pot ale is used for fertilising local fields. Owned and operated by Adelphi the distillery it boasts 2 stills and 7 wash backs. The owners of the distillery are also a very well know quality independent bottler.
The name has changed and gone are the confusing digits after the AD/. Yes that’s correct, the emphasis on the batch numbers has been removed, with a re- designed front label featuring the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse and simply named AD/. As always, the recipe is an equal split between peated and unpeated spirit, 65% bourbon cask to 35% sherry maturation, natural colour and non-chill filtered.
Bottled at 46.8% ABV once again and this batch out-turned a total of 25,200 bottles worldwide. This is now an Ardnamurchan core release whisky.
