Among the collection of new spirit brands to launch in Scotland in recent years, Strathleven's unique selling point is that both its Gilt gin and Valt vodka are single malt. Made with 100% malted Scottish barley and water from the river Spey, they had to build a new still and develop a new method of distilling to achieve this. This involves a quintuple micro-distillation process for Valt, the first of which took place on St Andrews Day in 2006, including a secret charcoal and chill-filtration stage. Gilt was launched in 2013, in the vein of a London dry gin, and a super-chilled version of Valt in April 2014.
