single distillery. It is a whisky refined by a single distillery, using malted barley as the
only grain ingredient.
Each distillery has its own distinct taste, flavour and style and single malts bear that.

Glenkinchie and if you move into the rare varieties, PortEllen, Dalmore , Glenfarclas,
IsleofJura, Knocdhu, Lagavulin, Laphroig, Macallan, Oban,Taliskar, Cragganmore.
Enjoying a single malt is a connoissseur’s job and you have to learn to be one.
A single grain, as distinct from a single malt, is a grain whisky made at one distillery,
while the single malt is made with barley.
