BACKGROUND ON MACDUFF
The stills at Macduff are intriguing things. First, there are five of them (two wash stills and three spirit stills). There is only one other distillery in Scotland that has this configuration: Talisker. But the design of the stills themselves is uniquely Macduff. The lyne arms rise slowly and then take sharp right turns connecting to the shell and tubes that lie horizontally and have after-coolers. All of this extends copper conversion and adds complexity to the whisky. This 19-year-old is the epitome of complex sophistication from a unique distillery.

About our Bottles
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.
