Serve on the rocks in a tumbler or tulip glass to concentrate its flavour, and add a splash of water to release more of its complexity. The Cragganmore distillery uses unique flat-topped stills to deliver complex flavours. The perfect gift for drinkers looking to explore the diversity of Speyside single malts. A small distillery in the largest and most famous whisky region of all in the Scottish Highlands, Cragganmore is derived from “Great Rock” in Gaelic. Cragganmore Distillery was founded in 1869 by John Smith, who is said to have been the most experienced distiller of his day. Before, he had been manager of Macallan, Glenlivet and leaseholder of Glenfarclas Distillery. One of the most famous and influential Scotch Whisky authors (the late Michael Jackson) described Cragganmore as having “the most complex aromas of any malt”. John Smith designed Cragganmore distillery around unique flat-topped stills to deliver complex flavours. It is a true designer malt.
