Edradour 10-year-old single malt whisky is expertly crafted with a combination of Oloroso Sherry and Bourbon casks, giving it a unique and complex flavour profile. Hints of dried fruits, spicy Christmas cake, and oaky spices make for a rich and satisfying taste experience. Aged to perfection, this whisky is a fantastic addition to any, and indeed every collection.

About the Producer

The ten year old Edradour is handmade and one of the last Single Malt Whiskies from a traditional farm distillery still in production today. The methods of production remain virtually unchanged in the last 150 years and are only just capable of commercial quantities. Indeed Edradour Distillery makes as much whisky in a year as most distilleries produce in a week. A rare pleasure for a fortunate few.

Before whisky became synonymous with Scotland, respected and prized throughout the globe, it was produced on a small scale in pot stills and illegally, mostly in the Highlands.

Edradour was no different and distilled throughout the struggles between the illicit stills of the Highlanders, who simply wished to make whisky (seen as their right) and the officialdom of the Excise Officers, who were out to stop them avoiding duty, or tax.

With the Excise Act of 1823 encouraging licencing and reducing duty paid on spirit, it became more attractive to move away from the illicit stills to a legal entity. As a result Edradour was duly founded in 1825 as a cooperative of local farmers.

Edradour has always been a survivor through both lean and prosperous times and, perhaps by virtue of its small size, has been able to more easily adapt to changing circumstances: from the original success story of blended whisky to ownership by the New York Mafia, from large corporate ownership to a welcome return to Scottish hands.

Today, under the keen skills of Andrew Symington, Master of the Quaich, Edradour Distillery is now producing - along with traditional, handmade farm whisky - innovative new single malts.

Small is beautiful, after all.
