Kilkerran 12 Year Old
The flagship expression from Glengyle distillery. A lightly peated, grassy malt with the distinctive Campbeltown funk.
Glengyle uses lightly malt prepared at its neighbouring distillery, Springbank. A straightforward (compared to Springbank!) double distillation process gives a gently peated grassy spirit which is matured in predominantly ex bourbon barrels.
The original Glengyle distillery operated from 1872 to 1925. When J & A Mitchell reopened the distillery after 79 silent years it was necessary to refit all the equipment, so Glengyle uses stills which previously belonged to the lost Ben Wyvis distillery.
