- The brand
The Girvan grain distillery was built by William Grant & Sons in 1963 on the site of a Second World War munitions factory. Ayrshire, just next to Girvan port, was the perfect place for a distillery: large quantities of grain could be shipped to the port and Loch Penwhappel provided all the necessary water. The first still that was installed, known as ‘No.1 Apps’, continues to produce excellent quality whisky.
MerchantValinch & Mallet is a young Italian independent bottler of single cask bottled at natural cask strength without chill-filtration. It was created by two individuals, coming from different backgrounds, united by the common passion for whisky and the desire to transform it into a profession. Each cask of whisky being unique by nature, this characteristic is transferred to the bottles: each of them has a handmade metallic plaque, where the information of each specific cask has been engraved by a fine blacksmith, thus creating unique works of art.
