- The brand
Founded in 1829 (or 1810 according to certain sources), the Glenburgie distillery has always been linked with the Ballantine’s blend and the Allied Domecq company. Since 1958, Glenburgie had the unusual feature of housing two Lomond type stills, which are very rarely used in the industry. They were replaced by traditional pot stills in 1981. Interestingly, its malt can also be found under the name Glencraig, in tribute to William Craig, a former director of production at Ballantine’s.
MerchantEstablished in 2013, Maverick Drinks represents a number of producers from the US and Europe, focusing on craft spirits because consumers are increasingly looking for products with provenance, authenticity, and craftsmanship they admire.
The lineEvery bottling in the Darkness range has been finished for over three months in a fresh, first-fill Sherry cask. A cask that's been specially rebuilt at just one tenth the size of a standard (500 litre) butt for a hugely increased surface area to volume ratio, yielding maximum richness and depth. Subtlety, poise and elegance have no place here. Welcome to a new level of intensity, concentration and brute-force.
