- The brand
Although the spring water it uses is highly peated, Scapa produces a single malt that is not very peaty - in fact, almost not peaty at all. The distillery uses a Lomond-style wash still in its own original fashion, enabling it to produce an oily and unctuous spirit. Lighter than its neighbour Highland Park, the single malt produced by the Scapa distillery is always a close reflection of the grain, expressing fruity notes (pear), hints of marine (salt) on the palate and a chocolatey finish. Its single malt is mainly used for the blends of the Ballantine’s family. Find out more
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.
