All about making whisky
Single grain is a grain whisky made in a single grain distillery. The name of the distillery features on the label, such as: Invergordon, Cambus, Strathclyde, or Cameron Bridge.
At the heart of a controversy that lasted more than 20 years, the single grain whisky produced by the Cambus distillery (closed in 1992) was the subject of a huge advertising campaign in 1906. Since then, single grains are very rarely bottled. Over 99% of production is absorbed by blending houses that use them to create their blends. However, one producer, Compass Box, offers a bottling of a grain whisky that incorporates some very old stock from the Cambus distillery: Hedonism.
