This bottling is predominantly from Bourbon casks with a generous top dressing of Oloroso Sherry casks, to create added depth and greater complexity.

History of Ballechin 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.
