Cragganmore

Cragganmore

Cragganmore-destilleriet blev grundlagt i 1869 af John Smith i Ballindalloch. I 1923 blev destilleriet opkøbt af White Horse, og i 1972 blev destilleriet yderligere omformet til dampopvarmning. Destilleriet er et af Speysides mindste. Cragganmore-whiskyernes kompleksitet skyldes inddragelsen af hårdt vand i fremstillingsprocessen. Endvidere arbejder man med små anderledes formede kedler som er smalhalsede; har en flad top og et lynerør der stikker ud fra siden
