Teaninich is one of the largest distilleries in Scotland, and yet also one of the most obscure as most of its production is used in the various blends within parent company Diageo's portfolio. The distillery is known for its malty profile which is attributed to the fact that they are one of only two distilleries in Scotland which use a mash filter instead of a traditional mash tun to extract the wort during the mashing phase of production. This expression of Teaninich was distilled in 2011, initially matured in a bourbon hogshead before being transferred to a first fill PX hogshead for a period of finishing before being bottled by The Single Cask.


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.

Packaging: All our bottles are shipped in a specialist anti-shock 'air tubes'.  These create a sleeve of air around the bottle to keep it safe and protected while in the post.  The air tubes are then places in discreet, plain, cardboard outer boxes.
