    Cragganmore Single Malt Whisky

    Cragganmore distillery is located in the village of Ballindalloch in Speyside. It was founded in 1870 by John Smith, although the building you see today is the rebuild which was completed in 1901. The site, close to where the river Spey meets the rivers Avon and Livet, was chosen mainly for its proximity to the Strathspey Railway. The distillery was among the first to effectively distribute their whisky using the rail system, and it is said the first train loaded entirely with whisky departed Ballindalloch with 16,000 gallons in 1887.

    Cragganmore translates to ‘big rock’ and refers to the 1,600ft Craggan More hill which sits around a mile from the distillery. It is rumoured that the stone used in the original building was taken from the hill.

    The high quality and complex whisky produced here has ensured Cragganmore has remained one of the most well-known and respected distilleries in Scotland. A unique feature of the distillery is their use of flat top stills, which is considered to be a major influence on the distinctive character of its whisky. Cragganmore malt is left to mature mainly in refill sherry casks, which gives it a complex and fruity taste.

    Cragganmore has a popular core range which includes a 12 year old expression and a rarer Distillers Edition which is finished in Port pipes to provide an extra sweet character. The single malts produced by the distillery have always been well received by the whisky community and have fared well in many competitions, securing it an enviable reputation both at home and abroad.
