Our single malt has come of age and to celebrate we have released only 2011 bottles, this is the very first single malt release from Abhainn Dearg Distillery and the first ever from the Outer Hebrides, that's legal! There won't be another opportunity to get this historic Special Three Year Old from Abhainn Dearg as we hold back our stock to reach five years.
The Outer Hebrides archipelago lies approximately forty miles from the Scottish Mainland the Isle of Lewis is the most northerly and Barra (Whisky Galore fame) lies at the southern tip. Abhainn Dearg is the only distillery in the 130 mile stretch of (mostly uninhabited) islands that form the archipelago. Even by island standards Abhainn Dearg Distillery is remote, located on the west coast of Lewis in an area called Uig, more famous for its Chessmen. (More info on Wikipedia)
This first Special Edition of Single Malt has been produced at the distillery from the clear crystal waters that run off the Uig hills and held in our own bonded warehouse. This unique whisky has never left the banks of Abhainn Dearg, it won't till it's sent out to our customers. This will be a single cask bottling, no added colour, non chill filtered and bottled (by hand) at 46%.
