All about making whisky
Located in the north of the Highlands and rebuilt next to its original site in 1967, Clynelish produces a fresh and fruity malt, the majority of which is used for the Johnnie Walker blends. The former Clynelish distillery wasn’t demolished, but instead renamed Brora in 1969. It produces a powerful and heavily-peated Highland malt. It closed its doors in 1983 and its bottlings are now particularly sought-after by collectors.
At the head of this independent merchant, Fabio Rossi continues the long tradition of Italian whisky bottling. His bottlings mainly concern malt whiskies from the isle of Islay, and are characterised by their sherry cask finishings.
The casks that produce the whiskies in the Barrel Selection are personally selected by Fabio Rossi, director of the independent bottlers, Wilson & Morgan. Bottled without chill filtering or the addition of caramel, the whiskies in this range are often lighter, purer in flavour and more ‘honest’ than some industrial whiskies.
