UISGE SOURCE is a pure, fresh spring water that is drawn from private wells in the region where the whisky is distilled. The sources are near the main distilleries in the three largest single malt producing regions: the Isle of Islay, Speyside and the Highlands. Each water has a unique chemical composition, that shares the same characteristics as the water used to make the whisky in that region. Whisky experts recommend adding water to bring out the full character of a whisky. The water softens the taste of the alcohol, enabling the whisky to breathe, thereby revealing subtle new flavours. It is preferable to use the same spring water that was used to produce the whisky, or at least water that shares similar characteristics.
