Malt of the Month – Glenturret 10 Year Old

This month, George our Wild Boar Master of Malt introduces us the one of the oldest distilleries which is also home to one of biggest selling blended whisky too… 

The Oldest Distillery in Scotland

The former garrison town of Inverlochy, now called Fort William, is where we are headed for January’s Malt of the Month.

Fort William once boasted no fewer than three distilleries: Ben Nevis, Nevis and Glenlochy. Demolition removed all traces of the Nevis Distillery, the sister to Ben Nevis, and a housing estate now occupies the site. The owners of the second distillery, Glenlochy, converted many of the buildings to a hotel and offices. Although presently used for different purposes, the malt barn, filling store, warehouses, and pagoda roof, remain standing on the site of Glenlochy, primarily because they are listed buildings. Ben Nevis is now the only surviving distillery in Fort William and one of the two still remaining on Scotland’s west coast. Continue reading “Malt of the Month – Ben Nevis 10 year old”

George, The Wild Boar Master of Malt, has been reminiscing about childhood family holidays in Scotland as he chooses for his Malt of the Month, the Glenfarlas 15 year old.

This month as I continue on my whisky journey I am back in Speyside, famed as much for is scenic splendour as for the number of distilleries. Having explored the area on many occasions whilst on holiday with my parents, it is an area that I love to come back to again and again. Continue reading “Malt of the Month – Glenfarclas 15 year old”
