The Singleton name is one of whisky’s most perplexing - it doesn’t relate to a single distillery, but rather a brand of whiskies made at three of Diageo’s distilleries: Glendullan, Glen Ord and Dufftown. Each distillery is denoted as the ‘Singleton of….’ on the bottle, and Dufftown joined the line-up in 2006. The Singleton of Dufftown not only has a much-loved core range, but also releases a number of limited editions of its older whisky - discover the two latest below.
