Top 10 Scottish spirits that aren’t Scotch

23rd January, 2017 by Amy Hopkins


Ardnamurchan is ideal for Scotch whisky fans looking for something a little different this Burns Night. Created by Ardnamurchan Distillery, Ardnamurchan Spirit 2016 AD is a one-year-old “mature spirit” too young to be called Scotch whisky, which requires a minimum ageing period of three-years.  It is a vatting of casks that had been maturing at the distillery since production started, which were then left to ‘marry’ in Sherry butts for three months. Due to “high interest”, all 2,500 bottles of Ardnamurchan Spirit 2016 AD have sold out almost immediately, but it’s worth keeping an eye on auction websites, or asking around any generous whisky-loving friends.
