Ballechin is the heavily peated distillation that Edradour Distillery have been making since 2003. Distilled using barley which has been infused with peat to a level not less than 50ppm.

This bottling is predominantly from ex Bourbon casks with a generous top dressing of ex Oloroso Sherry casks, to create added depth and greater complexity. It has been bottled at 46%, without chillfiltration, to retain the true cask character.

The name Ballechin originates from a fellow Perthshire farm distillery, which sadly closed its doors in 1927. There, Alfred Barnard, who catalogued all the distilleries in the UK in the 1880’s, made reference to having experienced a peated whisky.

70cl at 46% alc./vol.
