Thomas Ewer’s passion for single malt Scotch whisky, his personal contacts at the distilleries and the joy of discovering new whiskies were the driving forces behind the creation of Malts of Scotland. After years of searching for the best and rarest casks to select and buy, it was decided in 2009 to bottle the first release of 11 special single cask Scotch whiskies under the name of Malts of Scotland. The motto of Malts of Scotland is special bottlings for special moments. All the details are significant: from the careful selection of the casks to the design and appearance of the packaging and the company. In the warehouses of Malts of Scotland there are about 400 barrels of whisky aging from more than 60 Scottish distilleries. This wide range ensures that we will certainly be spoiled with more special bottlings in the future. The whiskies of Malts of Scotland are not colored, are un-chillfiltered and most are bottled at cask strength. What you get is the purest taste of uisge beatha.
Glenturret claims to be the oldest distillery in Scotland, being founded in 1775 by the Drummond family under the name The Hosh, although proof exists that illegal operations already took place as early as 1717. It took until 1875 until she was renamed Glenturret. She closed during First World War and again during Prohibition and was only reopened by James Fairlie in 1957. Since 1990 it is the property of Highland Distillers PLC, who created the BAFTA-award winning ‘The Famous Grouse Experience’. They have only one spirit still and one wash still, which limits the production to 340.000 litres per annum. And while there is an official release of Glenturret, the distillery is best known for their range of blends of The Famous Grouse. The visitor center receives the most people of all distilleries in Scotland.
