History of Edradour 10 year

The neat cluster of buildings at Edradour Distillery houses very old and traditional equipment capable of producing very limited quantities of a truly handcrafted spirit. Large distilleries will typically produce Edradour’s annual output in just a few days. Edradour introduced a heavily peated distillation named Ballechin in 2003 and released the first 10-year-old expression of this whisky in 2014. At Edradour, Ballechin is the name they use to distinguish their heavily peated distillate from their non-peated production, Edradour. The name Ballechin, originates from a small Perthshire farm distillery, which sadly closed its doors in 1927. There, Alfred Barnard, who catalogued all the distilleries in United Kingdom in the 1880’s, made reference to having experienced a peated whisky.
