BLACK TARTAN is a blended malt scotch whisky with its heart in the Cairngorms, a mountain range on the east Highlands of Scotland. It is a region which has been at the forefront of distilling for centuries and remains so today.
Gaelic, once the predominant language in the area, has largely disappeared as spoken word but it has left an indelible mark on the land and are still used to vividly describe the surrounding countryside. Carn Dubh (black cairn), Lurg Dhubh (black ridge), Cnoc Dubh (black hill) all describe the peat in the ground and the heather on the hills.
Each of the spirits in our blend is aged in a range of highly charred (black) casks, enabling the best possible reaction between the whisky and the wood and giving a strong butterscotch and vanilla palate.
