WHISKY REGIONS

Highland:

Scotland largest region has a wide variety of malt whiskies. Those from the north have maritime character. Whereas central Highland whiskies are lighter bodied.

Island:

Incorporating famous names such as Skye and Orkney, the wet and windy climate of the islands contributes a salty, seaweed flavour to the whiskies made here.

Islay:

Whiskies from this most southerly of the Western Isles are some of the most distinctive in Scotland. Often heavily peated, Islay malts have an unmistakable smoky flavour.

Speyside:

Speyside is home to two-thirds of Scotland`s malt whisky distilleries due to the rich and fertile soil and abundance of natural spring water. Speyside whiskies are known for their elegance and complexity.

Lowland:

Lowlands malt whiskies tend to be drier and lighter than those from the Highlands and make excellent aperitifs. They use lightly seated malt, which lends a subtle sweetness.
