All Annandale Malts are non-chill filtered Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, bottled at cask strength. Straight from barrel to bottle …..this is whisky at its absolute purest and most natural. Whether you drink it straight or with a dash of water, we’re confident that you’ll enjoy every dram.
Historically, Annandale produced smoky-peated whisky. We continue this tradition with our highly acclaimed Man O’ Sword (45ppm phenolics), as well as our fruity, unpeated Man O’ Words Single Malt.
Although one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland (1836), Annandale fell into a deep slumber in 1918, after the vagaries of Word War 1. Awoken by a loving kiss as recently as 2014, we’re already producing some of the finest Single Malts in the World (Jim Murray’s 2020 Whisky Bible: Best Single Cask, Single Malt Scotch Whisky – 10 years and under – Annandale Distillery’s Man O’ Sword Cask 2015/470).
We’ve decided to ring-fence all of our early production from 2014 (very rare) and 2015. Only a small number of these casks are likely to be bottled in the foreseeable future. We call these rare and beautiful bottles from our production 2014 and 2015, our Vintage Range.
As the Founders of Annandale Distillery, sampling maturing spirit in our historic bonded warehouses must surely rank as one of life’s greatest privileges and pleasures. Systematically working through our 2016 and 2017 production, we’ve identified some early maturing casks that are absolute stunners already. We thought it only fair to share a very select few of these whiskies with you. We call these our Founders’ Selection, because that’s exactly what they are!
"Sampling whisky as it matures is one of the enduring pleasures of owning a distillery." - Prof. David Thomson
"Make no mistake: New distillery or not, this is fabulously and truly faultlessly made and brilliantly matured whisky"- Jim Murray
"A small number of our Man O’ Words and Man O’ Sword Rare Vintage 2014 casks were bottled at just over 3 years of age, capturing that never-to-be-repeated moment in time." - Prof. David Thomson
