It's made with malted barley grown in Cognac, double distilled as all Cognac must be, then initially matured in new French Limousin oak casks before enjoying a finishing period in

Cognac casks. French oak is rarely used in Scottish distilleries.


Limousin Oak – French forests – soft low tannins = prized for its creamy vanilla aroma.

Made in small batches


Each bottle is drawn from a single cask


The result is a single malt with intense notes of apricot, banana, rose, vanilla and bubblegum. One for those with a sweeter tooth.
