The unique maritime character of Clynelish single malt Scotch whisky owes much to its location, but even more to the skills of those who ensure its high quality.

Heritage:

The original distillery at Clynelish was purpose built to serve the new farms being established on the fertile land of Sutherland’s coastal strip. For a cost of just £750 in 1819, the future Duke of Sutherland was able to provide a ready market for the grain grown by his tenant farmers. It’s from these origins that we’re able to enjoy the highly regarded Clynelish today.

Interesting Facts:

The great Victorian, Professor George Saintsbury, selected it as a favourite and today's malt whisky lovers consistently praise its unique combination of North Highland and maritime qualities.

You can almost taste the sea air in Clynelish, with its crisp, medium- bodied, mustard-fresh style. Although you won’t find Islay’s powerful smokiness here, there is just a trace if it lingering here.

However, its the clean taste of Clynelish that makes it such a fine aperitif – and you can enjoy it just as much later in the evening, such is its versatility.
