We are very excited to be about to launch our latest whisky, The Moorland Distiller Fraoch Mòinteach Edition V Scotch whisky and if you are quick you may be able to grab a bottle!
The Moorland Fraoch Mòinteach Scotch Whiskies
We launched our first Fraoch Mòinteach (Heather Moorland in Gaelic) bottling in summer 2018. Before we moved to Islay in the Hebrides to distill the best whiskies in the world, we bottled our own single malt and single cask single malt whiskies when we owned a small whisky and wine business in our home town of Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands.
We bottle whiskies that we enjoy drinking, whiskies that we can be proud of and recommend to others without hesitation. We also wanted our whiskies to look a little different and we’ve achieved this with the help of Dr Curly’s Toothbrush Illustrations. Curly uses nothing but a toothbrush to create the label illustrations. Each label shows our distillery character working in different parts of the distilling process, but this time he’s simply enjoying a dram in a dunnage warehouse, our favourite part of any whisky distillery.
Fraoch Mòinteach Edition V Scotch Whisky
Our latest release of Fraoch Mòinteach Scotch whisky is very special indeed. We were lucky enough to be offered a parcel of blended malt whisky and when we tasted it we were delighted with the resulting flavour and quality.
This rare blended malt whisky contains spirit from many different decades, all of which has spent a final few months further maturing and marrying in a sherry butt. The resulting whisky has picked up masses of rich, sweet and fruity flavours. This whisky has had no colouring added and it has been bottled without chill filtration so all of the natural oils remain within the spirit, this is evident in the glass as the legs and tears are incredibly slow and oily, leading to a fantastic mouthfeel.
There were originally just 110 bottles in this release available to reserve. Each label is individually numbered and signed. We now have just 8 bottles remaining so please fill in the contact form below if you would like to reserve a bottle. Bottles can be posted to you if required. The price per bottle is £85.

The Moorland Distiller and Fraoch Mòinteach
We are very proud of the whiskies that we bottle. We select our whiskies for their flavour, we select whiskies that we love. Most of our whiskies are single cask whiskies, one cask at a time, bottled alone, a piece of history, a moment in time, a spirit matured for many years in quality casks in dark, atmospheric warehouses in Scotland. We select these casks using the skills and experience gained whilst working in the whisky industry, managing iconic distilleries on the Hebridean Isle of Islay. We don’t chill filter, we don’t colour, and we bottle at natural cask strength.
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!
