Edradour's delightfully idiosyncratic website claims this whisky as a dram for life's small victories - appropriate for Scotland's smallest and most picturesque distillery, run by just three distillers. The equipment used for their 150 year history has remained unchanged since the day the distillery opened, and the stills, the smallest permissible by law, are only capable of producing 12 casks of whisky a week. Edradour's well regarded signature 10-year-old single malt is a honeyed, spicy whisky, with hints of sherry. They also do a 12 year old and a whisky cream liqueur. The distillery is the only place guaranteed to stock the whisky, but it's not too hard to get hold of - there are stockists throughout the UK and the world: in Edinburgh these include Royal Mile Whiskies, The Whisky Shop, Luvians Bottle Shop and The Scotch Whisky Experience. Tours of the distillery run throughout the year and cost £7.50, including a nip.
Situated in the Grampian mountains, near Pitlochry, this tiny independent distillery lays claim to being Scotland’s smallest. Utilising fresh spring water from Moulin Hill, production is limited to just a dozen casks per week, each batch handmade by John Reid and his two assistants, using the same methods (and equipment) as when the doors first opened more than 180 years ago. Until a little over a decade ago, the whisky made here was only used in blends, but a change in ownership moved the focus towards a high-end Highland single malt. Take a tour and you’ll discover a treasure trove of rare whiskies cellared here too – owner Andrew Symington also owns Signatory Vintage, which buys and ages them in order to create one-off bottlings of vintage spirit.
