12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
John Crabbie & Co stopped making whisky in the 1970s. But they’re back and making waves with the recent releases they’ve been making from undisclosed distilleries while their own distillery takes shape…
The 12 Year Old Crabbie was crafted from exceptional casks secured from a secret island distillery. From the rumours we’ve heard and the lightly peated, honeyed and sea-swept nature of the dram, we’d suggest casting your eyes north for inspiration. In the glass it’s richly malty with summery notes of freshly cut grass, juicy lemons, clementines and matcha, which then move on to something breakfastier like heather honey, marmalade, granola and a smoky cup of lapsang souchong. We've been enjoying this food-friendly Scotch alongside game, ginger snaps, cheese and little Japanese dishes.
John Crabbie is a whisky legend. He inherited his father’s merchant business in Edinburgh and turned it into John Crabbie & Co. Purchasing a porter brewery in Leith amidst the pirates and smugglers, just a stone’s throw from what is now The Whisky Society, he began utilising the imports from the docks to make gin, fruit-based cordials and of course the world famous Crabbie’s Ginger Wine. Crabbie then began procuring single malts from the finest distilleries, producing his own at the likes of Balmenach and Benrinnes, maturing barrels of Lagavulin, Talisker and Laphroaig, and then alongside Andrew Usher and William Sanderson he set up the iconic North British Distillery. Now reborn, his company is releasing outstanding whiskies again.
