The Nc’nean Distillery, on the Morvern peninsula in Scotland, has today announced the launch of its first general release, single malt Scotch whisky.

Nc’nean’s Organic Single Malt (46% ABV) has been produced using organic Scottish barley, and matured for three years in a combination of bourbon and red wine barrels. 

Nc'nean Organic Single Malt

Nc’nean spent the last 24 months refining the precise balance of casks to create the new whisky, which is said to deliver notes of lemon posset, peach, apricot and spiced rye bread.

Founded by Annabel Thomas, Nc’nean is committed to the smallest environmental footprint, and has created a certified organic whisky that is made in a distillery powered by 100% renewable energy and bottled in a 100% recycled clear glass bottle.

Commenting on the news, Annabel Thomas, Founder of Nc’nean, said: “When I left my London job to found Nc’nean in 2013, I wanted to create a distillery that would be known for creativity and would lead the way in sustainability. At the time, 2020 seemed impossibly far away, and we’ve overcome so many hurdles on the journey so far, but I am incredibly excited to have reached this point. But more than that, I feel the quality and taste of our first whisky proves that a focus on the excellence of the spirit with careful sourcing of barley and yeast, and a slow and gentle fermentation and distillation, creates a whisky that is both delicious and sustainable. I’m incredibly proud of the whisky we are releasing and can’t wait to see the response to our “Whisky Six”.

Nc’nean’s Organic Single Malt, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £47.95.
