Craigellachie 13 is the official release and flagship single malt from this Speyside distillery. While some distilleries go to great lengths to get rid of sulphuric flavours in whisky, Craigellachie takes pride in its citrus, slightly sulphuric flavours.
Craigellachie distillery profile
Craigellachie distillery was founded in 1891 during the whisky boom of the 19th century. The distillery has produced a distinct whisky that has been popular in blends. In 1998 the distillery was acquired by John Dewar and Sons (a subsidiary of Bacardi). These days there is an official release from the distillery. Previously only independent single malt releases were available. This distillery produces whisky that ends up, for the most part, in the Dewars blends.
