A 2004 vintage whisky from Arran, produced from Bere barley, the oldest cultivated barley strain used in Scotland, as a collaboration with the Agronomy Institute of Orkney College. It hasn't been used for whisky making since the middle of the 19th century and is not widely grown, with this whisky's raw materials coming from Orkney.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Colour: Ripe Golden Barley

    Aroma: Malty and herbal initially with hints of vanilla freshly cut hay. A veritable hedgerow of aromas is at play whilst honey and sweet fruits emerge with a dash of water against a back-drop of rich, toasted oak.

    Palate: Ripe apples and oak dominate at first before a full-bodied spiciness envelopes the palate and cuts through the sweetness.

    Finish: The bold malt re-appears to mingle beautifully with the spices which soften over time. The influence of the Bere Barley is dramatic and unmistakeable; offering a taste of whisky as it used to be.
