Whisky Release Update!

Single Cask Whisky

The Moorland Distiller and Fraoch Mòinteach Single Malt Whiskies

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.

Our Latest Fraoch Mòinteach Releases

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition IX Highland Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

We are very fond of our latest single cask release from the Highlands of Scotland. This incredibly citrusy single cask single malt whisky was distilled at Teaninich Distillery in 2009. Teaninich whisky is quite hard to find but it is always great.

The spirit was matured for 11 years in American oak and bottled at a cask strength of 57.8% with no chill filtration or colouring.

The flavour profile of this stunning single malt whisky is very much of citrus fruits but one of the most enjoyable aspects is that of the texture and mouthfeel that it provides.

We have just 5 of bottles of this rare single cask whisky remaining priced at £85 each. If you would like to order a bottle, please complete the form at the bottom of this page or call or text David on 07875 405 980.

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition VIII Orkney Single Cask Single Malt Whisky

One of our latest offerings is this fantastic, delicious, fruity, spicy big hitting Orkney single cask single malt whisky. There is simply loads going on in this un chill filtered dram. There is no artificial colouring here but there is plenty of vanilla, the faintest waft of heather smoke and lashings and lashings of old English spangles.

It has been bottled at a natural cask strength of 63.1%abv and was distilled at one of only two malt whisky distilleries on Orkney Mainland.

Bottles are priced at £85 each. If you would like to purchase a bottle please complete the contact form at the bottom of this page or call or text David on 07875 405 980

A FEW OF BOTTLES STILL AVAILABLE AT PRESENT

What Is Involved In a Stag Party Whisky Tasting?

When you arrange a whisky tasting for your stag party with us we will liaise with you to ensure that the event is designed to fit around your other activities, and that the tasting commences at a time convenient to you. That might be before dinner, with dinner (I can pair the whiskies with each course), or as after dinner entertainment.

I bring all of the whisky, the glassware, tasting notes, all I need you to provide me with is some space to conduct the tasting. Some times I’ll use a projector and screen to show a virtual distillery tour, a dining room is great for this.

I’ve worked with whisky for 20 years, I’ve produced it, bottled it, marketed it, retailed it and presented it. For years I worked at the coal face of whisky production on the Isle of Islay in the Hebrides where I was Brand Home Manager at Lagavulin Distillery before becoming Distillery Manager at the largest distillery on Islay, the mighty Caol Ila. My tastings are therefore very authentic as well as being good fun.

Fraoch Mòinteach Edition VI

Queen of the Moorlands Whisky

At last! The long awaited 6th Edition of our The Moorland Distiller Fraoch Mòinteach range of rare whiskies is nearly here!

Our Latest Single Cask Whisky

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.

If you are interested in enquiring about purchasing a bottle, please complete the form below and we will be in touch as soon as possible!
