Annandale Man O'Sword STR Founders Reserve

Under the expert guidance of the late Dr Jim Swan, Annandale distillery filled just 90 230L STR Ex-Burgundy casks in March of 2017 with award-winning peated and unpeated new make malt spirit. These casks were very much the brainchild of the Late Dr Jim Swan and a collaboration with Spanish cooperage Jose Miguel Martin. Originally filled with fine French Burgundy for a period of up to 7 years, once emptied, these casks went through the unique STR (Shaved Toasting and Recharring)  coopering process. Expect flavours of subtle peat at first that progresses into tobacco smoke and smoky bacon. This is followed by a hint of coconut and sweet almond cherry Bakewell.

Annandale Distillery 

There was a distillery called Annandale on the site of the current one. That defunct distillery was founded in 1830 by a former excise officer from the Elgin area. It produced spirit for some 90 years. It changed hands in 1883 and 1896, on that year, Johnnie Walker & Sons acquired the site and ran it until 1919. The site laid abandoned for a couple of years until it was acquired by a porridge and cereal manufacturer. 

There was no distillery to speak off for a very long time and in 2007 Annandale Distillery Co. purchased the site. An investment of £10.5 million brought the site back to life and the first drops of spirit were produced in 2014. The spirit is sold under three different names: Rascally Liquor (new make spirit), Man O'Words (un-peated whisky) Man O'Sword (peated whisky).
