What do you know about the Invergordon Distillery?

Probably not much as there are very few of their whiskies on the market, with nearly all of them being bottled by independent bottlers over the years, and most of their production going in to blended Scotch products.

This relatively young Highland distillery is now owned by Whyte and MacKay, and was built in 1960 to produce grain Whisky Coffey Stills

These stills were invented by Aeneas Coffey in the 1800s and allow a constant flow of distillate to be made without having to stop and re-start production.

Not open to the public, this is one of the elusive distilleries in the market with their whisky pretty much always being used within other products.

They are more efficient than pot stills and the resulting alcohol is considered smoother than that in made in pot stills, with the buttery texture and flavour profile you will experience with this Invergordon 11 Year Old from the GreatDrams Single Cask Series available here.
