The Craigellachie 13yr is an old fashioned whisky in a world of old fashioned whiskies, fruity and sulfur driven.
Flames. Flared light. Fireworks. Breathe in Bonfire Night. Clove-studded baked apples. Sulphury cordite. Hefty, malty, mazy in the mouth. Bonnie sweet, but with fire in its belly.”
The youngest of the Craigellachie core range but still packing flavour well beyond its years.

Craigellachie sits firm in the heart of speyside, flat bangin the middle of scotch territory. It obstinately stands alone on a rock overlooking the confluence of the rivers Fiddich and Spey. But rid your mind of that typical ‘Speyside’ flavour, for Craigellachie rebels against this.It consciously makes no concessions to modern-day house rules. Craigellachie is an unapologetic and unique whisky, robust and muscular with a hint of pineapple. The Distillery was built in 1891, when the great Alfred Barnard described our whisky as ‘a style seldom met’ and they’re been old fashioned in style and flavour ever since.
