Here at Fife Whisky Festival HQ, we’re looking forward to welcoming back the team from Inver House Distillers to next year’s festival on 7th March.
Old Pulteney 12 years is a permanent resident in the FWF whisky cabinet; an outstanding, core range dram which should be a go to for everyone. After recently rebranding, the new 15 years, 18 years and non-age statement, Huddart, went down well with Fife Whisky Festival goers earlier this year.
Situated in Wick, Pulteney is one of the most northerly distilleries on mainland Scotland and with its coastal influence on the maturing whisky, it is rightly known as The Maritime Malt.
Knockdhu distillery is where the AnCnoc single malt is produced. The whisky was given a different name so as not to be confused with the nearby Knockando distillery. However, if you know your Gaelic, you’ll be aware that AnCnoc means ‘black hill’, named after Knock Hill which is known as The Black Hill by locals.
Balblair distillery, featured in the film The Angels’ Share, produces a Highland single malt. From 2007 onwards, its releases came in the form of ‘vintages’. However, the distillery has now moved in favour of age statements with four expressions (12 years, 15 years, 18 years and 25 years in the portfolio) all bottled at 46%. With a fantastic range of both sherry and bourbon cask matured whisky, you’ll be sure to find something to please your taste buds!
With so much to choose from, make sure you stop by the Inver House stand and enjoy a dram or two with Krissa and Gordon!
