The Distiller’s Edition Cragganmore returns to the past and brings a new dimension to this benchmark malt, via the finishing of the whisky in Port-wine cask wood. Doing so, Cragganmore’s Master Distiller has found a wonderful partner, adding succulent plummy fruit notes to the malt.
The Cragganmore distillery was founded in 1869 by John Smith, who managed The Macallan and The Glenlivet distilleries. Sited close by the main Speyside railway line and in close proximity to the elegant River Spey, the Cragganmore whisky distillery draws its water from the mineral-rich Craggan Burn, which tumbles down its namesake, the Craggan More hill.
