  • Cragganmore - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The Cragganmore Distillery, nestled in the heart of the Scottish Speyside whisky region, is widely recognized for its exceptional Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. Since its founding in 1869 by the visionary distiller John Smith, Cragganmore has earned a reputation for whiskies of remarkable depth and complexity.

    The Cragganmore 12 Years is perhaps the distillery's most renowned standard bottling, often praised for its rich, almost floral sweetness, and subtle yet distinct smokiness. Another notable expression is the Cragganmore Distillers Edition, which undergoes additional maturation in port wine casks, adding an extra layer of fruitiness and complexity.

    The water for Cragganmore whiskies is sourced from the nearby Spey River, whose purity significantly contributes to the characteristic flavor profile. The distillery's uniquely designed pot stills, shorter and wider than usual, make the whiskies especially full-bodied and aromatic.

    Cragganmore whiskies are renowned for their exquisite balance between sweetness and smokiness. Notes of ripe fruits, vanilla, honey, and a hint of smoke are found in many of their expressions, characterized by their complexity and depth of flavor.

    In addition to the 12-year-old standard and the Distillers Edition, Cragganmore also offers a range of special releases and limited editions that represent the diversity and craftsmanship of Speyside whiskies. For whisky enthusiasts, a visit to the Cragganmore Distillery is an unforgettable experience, offering not only insights into the whisky-making process but also the opportunity to participate in tastings and learn more about the rich history and philosophy of the distillery.
