The Moorland Distiller and Fraoch Mòinteach

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 Mòinteach’ meaning moorland heather in Gaelic.

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition I Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

This is where Fraoch Mòinteach all started. We were lucky enough to be given the opportunity to bottle a beautiful, sweet, rich Speyside single malt whisky, distilled very near to Elgin. We didn’t know that we would go on to bottle other whiskies after this one, and it was a very limited release so consequently it sold out very quickly and has become very sought after as enthusiasts have began to buy the other editions in the range.

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition II Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition II Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

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. Just a few bottles of this special dram remain for order.

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition III Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

We were lucky enough to be able to bottle some wonderful 21 year old Ben Nevis under our Fraoch Mòinteach label recently. This deliciously sweet and dangerously easy drinking, cask strength single cask single malt whisky was matured in American oak for the whole of its life until bottled very recently. Priced at £95 per bottle, this sold out in 24 hours!

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition IV Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

Due for release on the 15th November 2018 is our wonderful Fraoch Mòinteach Edition IV single cask single malt whisky. This will be our last release of 2018 and a great one it is too. Once again the labels have been designed by Dr Curlys Illustrations this time depicting our man (who we have yet to name!) charring a cask. We think the colours are very autumnal! This whisky from secret stills has been distilled at a famous distillery in the Highlands. It is bottled at a whopping 59.8%abv and is full bodied, sweet and smoky. There are a total of 78 bottles, preorders are being taken and there are very few bottles remaining so please get in touch as soon as possible if you would like a bottle or two!

SORRY – NOW SOLD OUT

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition V Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

This incredible sherry matured blended malt whisky is simply stunning. If you like a sherry monster this is for you. Containing drams from many decades this is a rich, sweet and full bodied whisky. This is a limited release of only 110 bottles and as always the label has been skilfully designed by Dr Curly.

SORRY, NOW SOLD OUT!

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition VI Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

At last! the long awaited Fraoch Mòinteach Edition VI single cask single malt whisky has arrived.

We are now taking orders for this awesome whisky so If you would like to grab a bottle please complete the contact form below!

This incredible single malt whisky was drawn straight from a sherry cask in June 2019 and was distilled in 2005 at a mystery distillery in Speyside near to the town of Grantown on Spey and Cromdale.

The whisky matured in the sherry cask for the whole of its life. The whisky has been bottled at a natural cask strength of 57.3% but the rich and sweet flavours achieved through sherry cask maturation make this dram incredibly easy drinking!

As ever each label is individually numbered and signed and the label has once again been designed by the wonderful Dr Curly.

Bottles are £85 each and available to order now.
