TASTING NO T E S
“ Rich shades of Old Gold give way to the aroma of an ancient cedar forest on a Summer’s evening with subtle hints of aromatic spiciness. Warming on the palate with the flavours of cooked apple tinged with dried fruit. Softens with notes of apricot, then dark Muscovado sugar on the finish.”
H I STORY O F L I T T L E M I L L
The Littlemill distillery was officially established in 1772 on the site of an old brewery that had been established during the 14th century in Bowling on the banks of the River Clyde near Glasgow. It is rumoured that illicit distilling had taken place here since 1750 when the site was bought by George Buchan, a malt master of distinction. According to the renowned whisky historian and writer, Misako Udo in her book ‘The Scotch Whisky Distilleries’ distilling
may have taken place here for many centuries before, possibly making it the worlds oldest whisky distillery.
En lowland malt fra Skotlands ældste distilleri fra 1772. Lukkede i 1994 og brændte ned 4. sep. 2004 - så denne single malt skal nydes med respekt. Ja, ikke bare lukket, men destilleriet er væltet - og der er kun ruiner tilbage. Der er et begrænset lager, og det er helt definitivt at Littlemill er historie, ganske som mange andre malts fra lavlandet.
Littlemill has since been closed and demolished and will inevitably become rare in time
