Het verhaal van Edradour Distillery

« Dit verhaal is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »

Edradour distillery (Scottish Gaelic: Eadar Dhà Dhobhar, "between two rivers") is a Highland single malt whisky distillery based in Pitlochry, Perthshire. Edradour is reputed to be the smallest distillery in Scotland.

Established in 1825, the distillery was traditionally run by three men but now there are just two. Only eighteen casks are produced each week. They have a tour which costs £7.50 and currently includes two drams and a nosing glass.

The stills are the smallest in use of any distillery in Scotland. Were they any smaller, they would be deemed by HM Revenue and Customs to be portable, with the implicit capacity for illegal production.

A variety of whiskies are available from the distillery. Only the Edradour 10 year is chill-filtered, a process by which the esters and oils are removed, producing a cleaner look to the whisky, which when chilled or has ice added to it does not turn cloudy. There is, amongst others, a non-chill-filtered 12-year-old malt, some of which goes into the "House of Lords" and "Clan Campbell" blends. Also produced for 2 days in a week is a heavily peated version of the Edradour called Ballechin.
