Craigellachie is the rock at the heart of Speyside, yet is anything but your typical 'Speyside' whisky. Considered old fashioned even in 1891, its muscular, robustness come from the use of oil fired malt and worm tub condensers. It's this full, yet aromatic, character that has made Craigellachie a prized malt for blending since the late 19th century.
Speyside whiskies are known to be fruity and floral, but as the bad boy of Speyside Craigellachie defies with its oil fired, rich character. Craigellachie 13 is matured in a mixture of both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. The bourbon casks bring vanilla, toffee and fudge notes to the fore, and the sherry casks provide richness and complexity.

Innovative gentlemen with distilling backgrounds, Alexander Edward and Peter Mackie built the distillery on land they bought from Edward’s father in 1891.
At Craigellachie, we still choose to do things the old fashioned way, even if it’s more challenging, because it’s the right way for us. That’s why we still use old fashioned worm tubs in our distillation process and are the only ones to oil fire our malt. This gives our whisky a more muscular flavour than others. It has made us the world’s best single malt whisky. Craigellachie – Old fashioned in 1891. The bad boy of Speyside.
