The Ben Nevis Distillery was founded by Long John McDonald in 1825. The style of this whisky replicates the 1882 bottling from Ben Nevis that became a huge worldwide favorite. Like the 1882 release, this dram is made from peated malted barley from the Moray Firth coastal plains. It is also fermented using a mixture of fresh culture yeast and brewer’s yeast. The result is a whisky that highlights the best features of Highland malts- finesse, elegance, sweet barley notes with a touch of smoky peat.
