Single malt Scotch whisky
14 year old
Fine single malt whisky has been made in Oban for over 200 years, in one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. In effect, the town grew up around the distillery and since its foundation in 1794 it has played a crucial role in local life.
Oban is made using only the finest barley, malted to the distillery's own particular specification. The tiny lantern-shaped copper pot stills are among the smallest in Scotland; their rich, fruity malt is then slowly condensed in wooden worm tubs that sit outside among the rooftops, before being aged in oak casks for at least 14 years.
The Oban distillery is one of Scotland's smallest distilleries with just two small lantern-shaped stills. Cramped conditions led to unusually short lyne arms. Built in the centre of Oban as a brewery by town founders John and Hugh Stevenson, distilling began in 1794. Rebuilt 1890-94 by J. Walter Higgin. The distillery occupies a unique but small town centre site that prevents expansion. Closure was announced in 1968 but it was reprieved in 1972.
This is a "something for everyone" whisky - with a very broad and balanced flavour profile.
