Edradour Whisky

The spirit made at Edradour generally has a sweet cakey character, often underpinned by a herbal nuttiness . With a good dose of sherry casks in the 10 year old there is an array of dried fruit and spice to enjoy too, and some of our favourite limited editions are full sherry cask maturations. Alongside wine cask experiments, they also produce the heavily peated Ballechin spirit at the same site which has a massive farmyard character.

For a very long period, Edradour held the title of Scotland's smallest distillery, and it is still a very small and amazingly picturesque location, just outside of the major tourist town of Pitlochry. The original farm distillery was set up by a group of farmers with Duncan Forbes at their head, having had several years of experience distilling both legally and illegally nearby. This group stayed connected with the distillery until it was sold to the William Whitely blending house in 1933.

 

At this point, a very strange arrangement guided Edradour into the future. Whitely's company had build a strong presence by selling the King's Ransom blend in the USA, during prohibition, through the Mafia boss Frank Costello. In 1938 one of Costello's associates, Irving Haim, took on ownership of the distillery and until his death in 1976 Edradour was effectively under control of the Italian-American Mafia.

 

In 1986, under Pernod Ricard, Edradour was first released as a single malt, after a long and low-key relationship with the blending industry. It was only in 2002, when Signatory took over the distillery that the brand rapidly expanded to a whole new range of whiskies, including interesting finishes, peated variants and even their own cream liqueur. Since then, Signatory have expanded the distillery and moved their independent bottling business to the same location. It remains a beautiful distillery and a major tourist attraction which we always enjoying visiting when we pop up to Pitlochry to see our Drinkmonger colleagues.
