Royal Lochnagar Aged 16 Years Single Malt Scotch Whisky – 2021 Special Release (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 57.5% Age: 16 Years Old Country: Scotland
The Royal Lochnagar distillery neighbours the Balmoral Castle, which if you are not aware is home to the Queen when she visits Scotland. The distiller offers incredible tours and is one of the best distilleries to visit to discover how scotch whisky is made. The distillery is the last remaining distillery on Deeside and was built in 1826 by a gentleman called John Begg. The name for the distillery was taken from a mountain nearby made famous by Lord Byron who used to immortalised the peak in a poem, which was then turned into a song. The distillery mainly produces whisky for the use in blends and currently creates 450,000 litres per year. It has grown quite rapidly since being first built going through 4 major renovations.
The 2021 collection, drawn from some of Scotland’s most interesting, legendary distilleries and curated by Master Blender Dr Craig Wilson, portrays the otherworldly beings which have fiercely protected the heartlands of remote Scottish distilleries for an eternity, according to our ancient fables, and the mythical creatures come to life revealing their true characters. Drawn from renowned distilleries, the collection nods to the hidden gems that can be found in each corner of the Scottish terrain amongst the lochs and rugged highlands. The annual, carefully selected line-up highlights the diversity of our most treasured whisky reserves maturing in Scotland. Each whisky will be visually brought to life with heavily detailed illustrations and design work from renowned digital illustrator Ken Taylor. His striking signature style and interpretation of the mythical creatures takes cues from his portfolio of pop culture artwork.
