The very first release from the distillery

Ny lowland maltwhisky får verdens premiere i Danmark
Det er destilleriet Ailsa Bay, som nu er klar til at sende sin første whisky på markedet. Og Danmark er udvalgt som første destination. Destilleriet blev bygget i 2007 og som det første med master blender Brian Kinsman dybt involveret i, hvorledes destilleriet er designet. Det var med ønsket om at kunne arbejde med røget malt og dermed skabe de populære røgede whiskyer, der har haft betydning for udformningen. Der benyttes blandt andet helt ny teknologi for bedre at kunne bestemme cut punktet i destilleringen, således at kun det reneste spiritus kommer med. Endvidere benyttes old Baby Bourbon Hudson casks fra Tuthilltown destilleriet, som kun er fra 25 til 100 liter, efterfulgt af en længere lagring på traditionelle fade. Tuthilltown står blandt andet bag de populære Hudson Bourbons.
Destilleriet har 8 sæt kedler og kan producere årligt 12-14 mio. liter spiritus.

Selve destilleriet ligger klods op ad Girvan destilleriet, som er et af Skotlands største grain destillerier. Der deler de adresse med Hendrick's gin med udsigt udover havet og kig til øen Ailsa Craig i horisonten. Ikke langt derfra ligger også øen Islay, hvor netop den røgede whisky er så kendt fra.

Destilleriet er netop navngivet efter Ailsa Craig klippeøen, som ligger godt 20 km fra Girvan i Firth of Clyde fjorden. Klippen fungerer som et symbol på styrke, præcision, symmetri og skønhed. Egenskaber man gerne vil signalere med det nye destilleri.

Den nye maltwhisky introduceres i november i Danmark samt resten af Norden, inden den præsenteres i Storbritannien til februar.

Note: Ailsa Bay har en ppm på 21, hvilket svarer til niveauet på en Bowmore.

Ailsa Bay. 48,9 %.
Røget i duften og man kommer til at tænke på en klassisk Islay. En ppm på 21 gør den også ganske røget. Krydrede toner, honning, lakrids og blomster i smagen. Den høje alkohol er yderst velintegreret med et kort bid i afslutningen. Røg og sødme i en skøn forening.

Master Blender Brian Kinsman om Destilleriet Ailsa Bay: "Ailsa Bay has allowed us to do something extremely special. Using our precision distilling methods and a special process for cask maturation, I am able to carefully control the outcome of the whisky. With Ailsa Bay, I took exceptional peated malt and an ex Baby Bourbon Hudson casks to create a whisky with a balance of smoke and sweetness, to occupy a new space on the flavour map."

William Grant & Sons Brings Whisky Craft and Innovation to a New Level with Launch of Ailsa Bay

New Single Malt Reveals Unique Balance of Smoke and Sweetness

Dufftown, Scotland – William Grant & Sons is proud to launch Ailsa Bay, a single malt whisky that brings whisky-craft and innovation to a new level, as a singular, precision-distilled spirit, with a unique balance of smoke and sweetness.

This precision balance is driven by whisky visionaries Director Peter Gordon, Master Blender Brian Kinsman, Projects Director Conn Lynch and Technical Leader John Ross who have teamed together to create a spirit as beautiful, balanced and unique as the brand’s timeless muse, Ailsa Craig, which dominates the distillery’s horizon at Girvan.

“With Ailsa Bay, we wanted to create a very heavily peated whisky with all of the sweetness and smokiness we could muster, but also dial down on some of the medicinal notes that characterise some peated whiskies,” says Peter Gordon, Director of William Grant & Sons and great great grandson of William Grant. “Ailsa Bay is a testament to our whisky-making expertise and the skills of our Master Blender Brian Kinsman. We invest heavily in keeping the innovation conveyor belt going. Hopefully, we can do this in a pioneering way that respects the traditions that our family has passed down through the generations.”

Ailsa Bay is a state-of-the-art distillery created in 2007 from Peter Gordon’s vision and initially built to combine the purpose of increasing capacity and supply of malt whisky for blending and growing demand, plus the capacity to develop a new style of peated whisky. With its unique advanced technologies and precise controls, the distillery allowed Master Blender Brian Kinsman and his team the ability to isolate and control more elements from the initial distillation, to the maturation process, which enabled optimal control over the type and quality of liquid produced. Rarely will a Master Blender be able to exercise more control of his craft and, at the same time, be given such space and encouragement to innovate.

“Ailsa Bay Distillery has allowed us to do something extremely special,” says Master Blender Brian Kinsman. “Using our precision distilling methods and a special process for cask maturation, I am able to carefully control the outcome of the whisky. With Ailsa Bay, I took exceptional peated malt and ex Baby Bourbon Hudson casks to create a whisky with a balance of smoke and sweetness, to occupy a new space on the flavour map.”

Ailsa Bay will be available in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway from November 2015, and launching in the UK from February 2016. Ailsa Bay has an ABV of 48.9% per 70 cl bottle.

Ailsa Bay Tasting Notes
Nose : Fresh wood smoke with notes of smouldering damp heather and extinguished bonfire. Following the smoke is a wave of oaky sweetness and hot, buttered toast with an intriguing hint of caramelised apple.
Taste: An immediate punch of peat is quickly balanced by a burst of vanilla oakiness. The flavour meanders between smoke, fruit, creamy toffee and back again. With every sip, the complexity of the whisky deepens as layer upon layer of flavour is revealed.
Finish: An intriguing balance of oaky sweetness and peaty dryness.
