  • Inchgower - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The Inchgower Distillery is a renowned whisky distillery in the Scottish region of Speyside. Founded in 1871 by Alexander Wilson & Co., the distillery is located in the town of Buckie, near the coast of the Moray Firth. The distillery is known for producing Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which is sold in various blends as well as a standalone Single Malt.

    Inchgower was originally established as a replacement for the Tochineal Distillery, which had been closed. The distillery was taken over by Arthur Bell & Sons in 1936 and today is part of the portfolio of Diageo, one of the world's leading beverage producers. The distillery has been in continuous production since its founding, with the exception of brief shutdowns during World War II and other economic challenges.

    The Inchgower Distillery features traditional equipment that respects the Scottish whisky-making process. It is equipped with four stills that are known for the typical Speyside style. The distillery's water source comes from the nearby springs of Menduff Hills, giving the whisky a unique character.

    Inchgower Single Malt Scotch Whisky is characterized by a complex flavor profile. Typical aromas include notes of fresh fruits, malt, spices, and a hint of sea salt, giving the whisky a slightly maritime note. The taste is often full-bodied with a balanced sweetness and a lingering finish.

    Most of Inchgower's production is used in various blended whiskies, including well-known brands like Bell’s and Johnnie Walker. However, standalone bottlings of Inchgower Single Malt are also available, appreciated by whisky connoisseurs and collectors.
