Inver House Distillers

Published on: 22/09/18 by Justine

Here at Fife Whisky Festival at HQ, we’re looking forward to welcoming the team from Inver House Distillers to next year’s festival on 9th March.

With suberb single malts from Balblair, Pulteney and Knockdhu distilleries, we’re sure that you’ll have plenty to savour and enjoy at the Inver House stand.

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. With its recent rebranding, we’re looking forward to trying the new 15 years, 18 years and non-age statement, Huddart.

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 the locals.


Balblair distillery, featured in the film The Angels’ Share, produces a Highland single malt. From 2007 onwards, its releases have come in the form of ‘vintages’ rather than age statements as such.  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 plenty to choose from, make sure you stop by the Inver House stand on the day!
