Spirit of Garstang 12yr Inchgower Single Malt Whisky
The team at the Spirit of Garstang have teamed up with a small cask distillery in Scotland to build their new cask aged whisky. Our latest single malt Scotch Whisky has been a true labour of love already having Scottish family roots, but also working with the Distillery to achieve a complex range of limited edition malt whiskies.
This has now been bottled at 40% in 700ml bottle using the fresh water from Loch Katrine and is 12 years old.
Inchgower Whisky 12yr old
Located just outside the fishing port of Buckie, Inchgower produces a distinctive coastal style of single malt. The perceived saltiness on the palate comes from an intense spiciness that is created though their unique distillation process. Built in 1871, Inchgower later came under the ownership of Arthur Bell, of the famous Bell’s Blend, and latterly by Diageo. It remains one of the significant components in the Bell’s blend.
Distilled on 19th February 2009 and filled to a single ex-bourbon hogshead (#802121 this whisky was matured for more than 12 years prior to bottling. Reduced to 40% with fresh water from Loch Katrine, the whisky was filtered to remove any chill haze. The colour is natural, from the interaction of spirit and wood alone.
