The west Highlands has a special place in our shop especially since the late 1990's just as iconic names like Glenlochy started to vanish one distillery kept the fire going! Ben Nevis established in 1925.
The distillery we see today is a merging of Ben Nevis distillery and Nevis distillery (1878) The two merged in 1908.
Jump forward to 1955 A coffey still was installed so they could make both Malt and Grain whisky on the site, the distillery today concentrates on Malt whisky and is owned by Nikka Whisky Distilling Company in Japan.
How will this dram taste given its been partly matured in an Ex Belize dark Rum cask? Rather well I must say
