Nevis Dew Blue Label Blended Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 40% Age: No Age Statement Country: Scotland
The “Blue Label” blend started out in life as a contribution to the stock of millennium whiskies which proliferated the market at that time. Most companies presented aged and most very expensive products, whereas Ben Nevis produced a new blend which did not carry an age statement on the label thus being a new whisky for the new millennium.
This whisky won their first gold medal from the International Wines & Spirits Competition in 2000. Now that the millennium is behind them they decided to continue selling this product but re-named as “Blue Label”.
Jim Murray’s “Whisky Bible 2004” describes this blend as ‘weighty malt; has that “married” feel, where the malts have combined to make a busy, impossible-to-describe whole, back to the grains again: quite bitty and complex; chunky and complex.
This product was awarded a gold medal in the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2000 and Monde Selection gave it a silver medal that same year.

About the Distillery
Ben Nevis Distillery is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. The distillery is nestled at the foot of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, which has a summit elevation of 4’406 feet above sea level giving its malt a renowned name ‘the dew of Ben Nevis’ . This imposing mountain provides an impressive background to a traditional Scottish craft.
The distillery was founded by ‘Long John’ Macdonald (no he was not a pirate) in 1825 and in 1848 in a cunning way of promotion presented a cask to Queen Victoria when she visited Fort William. They produce both malt and grain whiskies simultaneously due to installation in 1955 of a special still.
Golden liquid plays a traditional part in supplying good warming Scottish hospitality in this wild part of Scotland.
