This Campbeltown single malt is finished in a combination of first-fill bourbon barrels and Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. Chewy vanilla fudge, a hint of salinity, and an array of oak-y spices.
Glen Scotia, sometimes affectionately known as The Scotia or Old Scotia, is a single malt distillery founded in 1832 in Campbeltown, one of the 5 recognised Whisky producing regions of Scotland. Campbeltown is a small town on the Kintyre Peninsula on the west coast of Scotland. It is affectionately known as the “Wee Toon”, and the Victorian Whisky Capital of the World. At its peak in the 1800s there were 21 distilleries in this small town with approximately 170 distilleries operating at that time in the UK (129 of those in Scotland). Campbeltown still has 3 operating distilleries: Glen Scotia, Springbank, and Glengyle.
Having operated continuously since 1832, Glen Scotia is one of Scotlands oldest distilleries, and has a formidable pedigree.
