The brand

The brand

Located in the North Highlands, Teaninich was at one time something of a double-headed distillery. In 1962, in response to increasing demand, its capacity for production was doubled and it began using four stills instead of two. In 1970, a new production unit “side A”, housing six new stills, was built next to the old unit, which then became known as “side B”. “Side B” was closed in 1984, with “side A” following in its footsteps just one year later. In 1991, the Teaninich of modern times once again became operational. Two official bottlings have since been released. The first, a 10 year old, was released as part of the Flora & Fauna range and the other was released as part of the Rare Malts collection.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

Of all the existing specialist bottling ranges, Connoisseurs Choice is without doubt the oldest. The label underwent a few changes in the 1980s. Plainer and more restrained, it became two-toned with creams and browns. When segmentation by region of production region was adopted by the whisky industry in the early 1990s, the range changed its identity again. The label now shows a map of the region of Scotland where the malt comes from. To the delight of whisky enthusiasts, the range, which is always evolving, is now bottled at 43% and 46%.
