Editor Choice: In the 1890's whisky expert Alfred Barnard noted that Craigellachie represented an old-fashioned style of whisky "seldom met with now" which we took as a compliment. Ever since, we have stubbornly maintained the methods that make our liquor so distinctive. It's why we are one of the very few distilleries that still use worm tubs to cool the spirit from the stills. They bestow it with extra flavours of a strong,sulphury nature and help to create a gutsy dram that rivals whiskies twice its age.
