Ben Nevis 10 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
The journey of the water of life. It starts as rain or snow falling on Scotland's highest mountain - Ben Nevis - Either as rain or melting snow it percolates the thin layer of peat soil until it reaches the granite rock and unable to penetrate it runs under the surface until emerging in Coire Leish or Coire na Ciste. The outflows from these two mountain lochans, located well over 3000' above sea level make their way spilling over the blue and pink granite rocks of the mountain's rugged North face until they join together as the Allt a Mhullin continuing on in the valley between Ben Nevis and Carn Mor Dearg. For the last 750' of descent this water is piped underground into the rear of Ben Nevis Distillery where our small dedicated workforce work their alchemy to convert this pure clear sparkling water into the crystal clear Ben Nevis Malt Spirit.
A period of 10 years of maturing in Oak Casks stored in our warehouses nestled at the foot of the mountain ensues before we consider this fine whisky to be ready for drinking by the discerning.
