Edradour

Edradour Distillery (pronounced Ed-ra-dower) is Scotlandís smallest distillery. Edradour gets this title as it has the smallest stills in Scotland. If the distillery stills were any smaller they would be classed by HMRC as portable stills and could be used for illicit distilling. The distillery is found near the buzzing little village of Pitlochery. The distillery was founded in 1825. Edradour fills about 12 to 15 casks a week and depending on yield, they only produce 90,000 litres a year. This is this is the same amount that larger distilleries produce in one year. For being the smallest distillery in Scotland it is one of the most visited with about 100,000 people going to visit a year. Edradour is a very beautiful distillery, it is well worth a visit to see the difference of the new high-tech distilleries and the traditional ways of Edradour. The distillery is owned by Andrew Symington. He also owns the independent bottling company Signatory Vintage. Edradour has two stills, one wash and one spirit still. House Style: Minty, creamy. After dinner.


Nose: A lot of sweetness with some smoke. Marengue, egg and cress, some farm house peat, coconut milk, bay leaves and burnt heather. Slight brininess in there too. Palate: Ashy, and salty. Coal, more burnt heather, water cress. More delicate on the palate than the nose suggested. Very soft hint of cloves and some charred oak. Finish: Slightly, ashy, earthy and peaty.
