Benchmark 2021

The Craigellachie Distillery in the very heart of Speyside is an impressive sight, with its traditional pagoda and glass-walled stillhouse. It proudly displays four large, mighty copper stills, unmissable from the outside, giving you an idea of the visceral power that makes Scotch whisky. We have taken three casks of powerful 11-year old Craigellachie single malt and further matured the spirit in specially selected Tawny Port barrels from Caves de Murça, our winemaking partners in Portugal. After 15 months, the time had come to share this transformed Speysider. This bottling is a great representation of what we do at Murray McDavid and our Art of Maturation philosophy.
