About this deal

I'd never even heard of the Campbeltown malt region until a late-night whisky wikipedia wander alerted me to its presence. Glen Scotia is located in the Campbeltown whisky producing region on the Kintyre Peninsula west of Scotland. The distillery was founded in 1832 by Stewart Galbraith, whose family held it until the end of that century. Campbeltown's iconic harbour was once the last stop for Scotch whisky of all regions to the wider world, and our aptly named "Campbeltown Harbour" is a toast to this important port, and the long-standing relationships it has forged between Campbeltown and the wider world. Glen Scotia has partnered with celebrated artist, Joel Holtzman (Lucasfilm, Marvel, Disney, Macmillan) to bring each of the icons to life.

Our Glen Scotia Double Cask is a perfectly balanced whisky with flavours of toffee, salted caramel, and a dry finish.

An exceptional single malt scotch whisky matured that delivers the true character of a 15-year-old Campbeltown malt whisky. The lightly peated single malt has been matured exclusively in first fill bourbon casks, so there's a good dose of toffee among the more savoury seaside notes.Glen Scotia was born in a place like no other - a small town on the west coast of Scotland that was to become the ‘Victorian Whisky Capital of the World’.
