Lost Distillery Dalaruan Archivist
Bottle Size: 70Cl
A modern interpretation of the legendary Dalaruan Distillery in Campbeltown, featuring a marriage of 100% aged Single Malt Scotch Whiskies (on average a quarter of a century.) Not chill filtered, 700ml, ABV 46%, presented in a deluxe gift tin.
Founded 1825 by Charles Colville, a travelling cartwright who partnered with four other local businessmen. Dalaruan was an integral part of the rise of Campbeltown into a ‘Whisky Capital.’ Dalaruan produced a triple-distilled Campbeltown Malt whisky which was a key component of world-famous Greenlees’ Bros blend ‘Lorne.’ In 1826 they produced 14,295 gallons and in 1885 – 112,000 gallons. Dalaruan eventually sold for closure at auction in 1925 during the whisky industry collapse. At its height, Campbeltown had 34 working distilleries, alas today only 3.
Aroma: exotic and dried fruits, Manuka honey, campfire wood smoke and pepper.
Taste: Rich and oily, indulgent salted vanilla fudge, dried fruits return and toasted almonds.
Finish: The dying embers of a fire linger, stem ginger in syrup adds to a deliciously long finish.
