For those whisky lovers with a sweet tooth this is very much the dram for you. Our latest single cask single malt whisky hails from a remote area of Speyside, a stones throw from Cromdale and not too far from Grantown on Spey.
This very special whisky has been drawn straight from a single sherry cask where it has matured for the entire 14 years of its life during which time the spirit has taken on a wealth of rich and sweet flavours. This has resulted in a very easy drinking dram indeed even though it has been bottled at the natural cask strength of 57.3% which is just over 100 proof!
The spirit was distilled in 2005 and it was bottled in June 2019 without any colouring or chill filtration. The whisky is drawn directly from the cask, is completely natural, has all its natural oils and bottled without the addition of water.
Unique Whisky Labels
Our Fraoch Mòinteach labels are skillfully designed by Dr Curly from Dr Curly’s Toothbrush illustrations. He uses nothing but a toothbrush to create his incredible illustrations. Each of our Fraoch Mòinteach Editions depict our character performing different tasks often seen in a whisky distillery.
Each of the labels are individually numbered and signed.
On the Fraoch Mòinteach Edition VI label, our character is using a hammer and a coopers driver to drive the hoops on a large whisky cask. In preparation for a cask being filled with spirit, coopers drive the hoops to make sure that the staves are as tight as possible so as to avoid any leaks of the precious whisky and to limit the loss to the angels, AKA the Angels Share.
Order a Bottle
We have taken pre-orders for many of the Edition VI bottles available but there are still a few left. The price is £85 per bottle and we can arrange shipping to UK addresses and sometimes overseas too.

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.
To reserve a bottle, please complete the form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
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.
