THE SINGLETON

DISCOVER TRUE RICHNESS

It’s hard to imagine summarising whiskies from three distinct distilleries. Where would you begin: the nutty cereal notes of Dufftown’s palate, the fresh orchard fruits of Glendullan, or Glen Ord’s dark berries? All perfectly balanced, rich and smooth to the finish. Crafted to be instant favourites, not one of these expressions could be called an acquired taste. In fact, The Singletons have a quality the experts call ‘welcoming’: comprising of the best, most appealing and enjoyable flavours from the spectrum of Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

VISIT OUR DISTILLERY

One of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, Glen Ord is steeped in history. Founded on the Black Isle in the Scottish Highlands, it sits on a stretch of land that had been in the possession of Clan Mackenzie for nearly 700 years, when Thomas Mackenzie built the distillery in 1838. It is from this famous Scottish clan that the distillery adopts its motto, Luceo non uro, meaning “I shine not burn” we continue to be inspired by this today, with our emphasis on slow batched distillation.

“There's a local saying in Dufftown: "Rome was built on seven hills and Dufftown stands on seven stills". In 1897, Glendullan was the seventh distillery built in the famous Scottish town of Dufftown in Speyside, and is named after the Dullan Water which runs through the Dufftown township.”

OUR HISTORY

Situated in the rolling Convall Hills on the edge of a river where salmon spawn in winter, Glendullan is a picture-perfect image of the majestic Scottish countryside and the producer of an award-winning Single Malt. With access to crystal clear fresh water, barley grown on rich local soul and even a private railway that transported the casks south, the distillery prospered and by 1902, its whisky had found favour at the court of King Edward VII. Using large onion-shaped stills in the distillation process, Glendullan crafts a light, delicate, green apple spirit profile. The spirit is predominantly matured in American oak ex Bourbon casks, which naturally impart layers of sweet, nutty flavours, and blended with a small portion of liquid rested in the European oak ex Sherry casks to lend a rich fruity dimension for a perfectly balanced Single Malt. Master Blender Keith Law oversees the blending of the casks, tapping on 36 years of experience to bring to the life the delicate and distinct expressions of the portfolio.
