Glen Scotia - Distillery of the Year 2021

After winning ‘Scottish Whisky Distillery of the Year’ at the Scottish Whisky Awards in November 2021, the Glen Scotia team headed by Master Distiller Iain McAlister, have created this rare and exclusive release, which is said to be the perfect representation of the signature Glen Scotia style.

Glen Scotia has been producing single malt whisky since 1832 and is one of three surviving distilleries in Campbeltown. The distillery still maintains much of its original design including the fermenters, the stillroom, and the dunnage warehouse dating from the 1830s. To this day, the distillery team follow in the footsteps of their founders, using traditional methods, carefully creating the unique Campbeltown maritime style the brand has become world-famous for.

Commenting on the launch, Iain McAlister, said: “We are one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland, but with the combination of our team’s craftsmanship and our ambition to take Glen Scotia to the world, we are producing some of the best whisky to have come out of Campbeltown in many years. This is a result of those that came before us and their hard work and knowledge of the craft. To win Scottish Whisky Distillery of the Year was a real feat, and we knew we needed to mark it in a special way. This latest release is a fine example and a legacy of a true Campbeltown malt, and we hope collectors and friends of the distillery from around the world will join us in raising a dram of it to the continued success of Glen Scotia.”

Limited to 500 bottles, Glen Scotia - Distillery of the Year 2021, will be available later this month from specialist retailers for a RRP of £475.00. A small number of bottles are now also available via ballot from the Glen Scotia website.
