Edradour was originally called Glenforres when it was built in 1825 but became Edradour around a decade later - only to return to the Glenforres name as Glenforres-Glenlivet after being acquired by William Whiteley company in the 1920s to produce malt fo rtheir King's Ransom blend. Today Edradour is produced in Scotland's smallest distillery - and is hand made today as it was over 150 years ago by just three men who are devoted to the time-honoured methods of whisky making. Indeed equipment used at the distillery has remained unchanged since the day the distillery opened and is only just capable of producing commercial quantities. Only 12 casks of whisky are produced a week making Edradour single malt a rare pleasure for a fortunate few.
Spiced fruitcake and orange zest on the nose, the palate has an almost rum like sweetness with hints of clotted cream and vanilla. The finish brings some toffee and burnt caramel notes.
Ideal for a bitter chocolate tart with fresh raspberries.
