Mossburn Distillers, has today announced the launch of the first two expressions from a new blended malt Scotch whisky brand.
Named after the mysterious medieval ruin which lies on the headland of the eastern flank of Knock Bay on the Isle of Skye, Caisteal Chamuis is said to be an approachable brand and a tribute to Hebridean life and lore, of a time of bold spirits, lively company and misty peat fires. A warm welcome to the world of big, peated malts.

Caisteal Chamuis Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (46% ABV) which is comprised of single malts distilled on Skye, Orkney and Islay, has been finished in first-fill bourbon casks.
Caisteal Chamuis 12 Year Old Sherry Barrelled Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (46% ABV) is a blend of single malts distilled on Islay and Orkney, which was initially matured for 12 years and then double barrelled in custom made fresh Oloroso Sherry butts.
Commenting on the launch, Rick Bennett-Baggs from Mossburn Distillers, said: “In Caisteal Chamuis we have created a mystifying whisky from the Hebrides, celebrating the life and lore of a past that might have been at the castle. While the story may be mysterious, enjoying a good quality, peated malt whisky shouldn’t be, as we seek to transport drinkers and welcome them to the misty isles of the Hebrides.”
Caisteal Chamuis 12 Year Old Blended Malt Scotch Whisky and Caisteal Chamuis 12 Year Old Sherry Barrelled Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for the respective RRP’s of £39.00 and £49.00.
