DESCRIPTION
Ein herausragender Holzschatz ist das Markenzeichen von Murray McDavid. 1994 gegründet, machte sich der renommierte unabhängige Abfüller mit Nachreifungen in den erlesenen Fässern schnell einen Namen. Die neue Reihe Cask Craft bildet da keine Ausnahme: Sie umfasst Single Malts aus ganz Schottland, die in verschiedensten Eichenfässern meisterlich zum perfekten Gleichgewicht zwischen Holz und Liquid gereift werden. Weder gefärbt noch kühlfiltriert, entfalten sie sich bei schöner Trinkstärke von 44,5% vol.

Ein Islay Bourbon Cask entzündet im Speyside Whisky von Glen Elgin völlig neue Noten, die der Glen Elgin Peated Finish einfängt.

  • Glen Elgin - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The Glen Elgin Distillery, nestled in the picturesque region of Speyside, Scotland, presents an intriguing history and unique production of Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Established in 1898, the distillery faced turbulent initial years, including multiple ownership changes and production halts, before being acquired by Scottish Malt Distillers, a subsidiary of DCL, in 1936 and later becoming part of Diageo​​.

    Glen Elgin is renowned for its fruity character, achieved through clear wort, long fermentation, and slow distillation in six stills. These processes help remove sulfur while condensation in worm tub condensers adds weight and complexity to the whisky​​.

    The official product range has evolved over time, primarily consisting of a 12-year-old expression today. Glen Elgin Malt is also a key component in White Horse Blended Whisky. Independent bottlings by third-party bottlers such as Signatory Vintage, Adelphi, and Gordon & MacPhail have also contributed to the diversity and availability of Glen Elgin whiskies​​.

    The distillery produces 1.8 million liters of pure alcohol annually and sources water from the springs of the picturesque Millbuies Loch. The unique "small tall" shape of its three wash stills and three spirit stills, along with the use of copper worms for cooling the alcohol vapors, are distinctive features of the distillery that contribute to the unique profile of Glen Elgin whisky​​.

    Glen Elgin represents a turning point in the history of Single Malt, being the last distillery built during the boom years of Scotch Whisky production. Charles Doig, the architect of the distillery, once predicted that it would be the last distillery in Speyside for 50 years, a prediction that turned out to be remarkably accurate​​.

  • Murray McDavid

    Murray McDavid was founded in early 1994 and quickly developed into a leading bottler of Scotch whisky. The company was one of the first to use a variety of interesting casks in the art of maturation to create inspired Scotch whisky. Murray McDavid was founded by the London wine merchants Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Gordon Wright of the Springbank Distillery. They quickly gained a reputation for maturing whisky in interesting casks, particularly noble wine casks.

    In 2000, the team at Murray McDavid set out to reopen the closed Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay, enlisting the services of Jim McEwan, the most famous Master Distiller of Islay. In 2012, the spirits giant Remy Cointreau purchased the Bruichladdich Distillery and Murray McDavid. Later, Murray McDavid was sold to its current owners, the leading Scotch whisky broker Aceo Ltd.

    Today, the home of Murray McDavid is the Coleburn Distillery in Speyside, where the tradition of bottling artfully matured Scotch whisky continues. Murray McDavid is known for its innovative methods of whisky maturation and the use of a wide range of casks, including wine casks, sherry casks, and other special types of casks, to create unique and complex flavor profiles.
