The Moorland Distiller Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

Queen of the Moorlands Whisky

We occasionally have a few very special whiskies for sale, please see below for details of our current bottlings.

Our Single Malt Whiskies

We use the experience that we have gained in whisky production, marketing and retail to occasionally release very special single malt whiskies from around Scotland. We only bottle what we like and are not necessarily looking for whiskies from big name distilleries, if it tastes great and is an interesting dram then we’ll bottle it.

The Moorland Distiller and Fraoch Mointeach

Before we moved to Islay to work at Caol Ila, Lagavulin and Kilchoman distilleries we owned a wine and whisky retail business where we grew a strong reputation for bottling single cask single malt whiskies under the Queen of the Moorlands Rare Cask label.

Now that we are bottling whiskies once more we’ve launched our new label, The Moorland Distiller ‘Fraoch Mointeach’ meaning moorland heather in Gaelic.

Special Releases Currently Available

Our current bottling is Fraoch Mointeach Edition II. Bottled at a whopping 62.4%abv this is a deliciously sweet and wonderfully smokey dram from one of the oldest distilleries in the Highland region of Scotland. Each bottle is individually numbered and signed. Labels have been specially designed by Dr Curly’s Illustrations and executed with just a toothbrush. We think the labels are pretty cool. Bottles are priced at £70 each, shipping quoted on request.
