Tasting Notes

Ben Nevis sits just at the base of its namesake, Scotland’s highest mountain. A coastal distillery in the Western Highlands, Ben Nevis draws its water from the Allt a’Mhuilinn which originates from two pools, Coire Leis and Coire na’Ciste, which are both sited a good way up the mountain. Ben Nevis Distillery was established in 1825 and has a long and colorful history, with ownership changing hands throughout the years.  In 1989, the distillery was sold to the Japanese distiller Nikka (Asahi Group) which had been buying malt and grain from the distillery for quite some time. Today, Ben Nevis focuses only on malt whisky production and is the last distillery in Scotland to insist on using Brewer’s Yeast to induce fermentation.
