Meaning “Rare Cask” in Gaelic, Casg Annamh is a triple cask matured, small batch single malt Scotch whisky that proudly showcases Aberlour’s signature Sherry-forward style.
For 30 years, our privileged relationship with one of Spain’s most respected Sherry bodegas has allowed us to hand-select the finest Oloroso Sherry casks. They give our whisky a deep Sherry influence and exceptional aromatic qualities. To balance the flavors of dried fruits and spice, we combine the sherry-matured whisky with whiskies matured in two types of American oak cask, adding notes of citrus and subtle sweetness. A distinctively rich and fruity flavor for those looking to explore the Single Malt category.
The Aberlour Distillery, estd 1879, lies in the village of aberlour in the heart of Speyside, the country’s premier whisky-making region which is renowned for producing whiskies of subtle depth and elegance. Aberlour is an historical place and its story stretches back over a thousand years. In the ancient past, a druid community lived in the valley. The druids valued oak trees and water and believed you could hear the water spirits talking to each other. Aberlour is a Gaelic word meaning ‘mouth of the chattering burn’ (stream). Water and an oak tree still feature today on the Aberlour label. The distillery was built in 1879 by James Fleming, a grain merchant turned distiller, entrepreneur and later—a great philanthropist. Our expertly crafted new spirit is usually double cask matured for a minimum of 12 years in the finest hand-picked Oloroso Sherry butts, and in American oak barrels. When judged ready for bottling, the whiskies are carefully married to create a truly rich and rewardingly complex range of single malts.
