Chain Pier Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Inaugural Release from The Chain Pier Distillery, the first distillery in Edinburgh to produce Single Malt Whisky since 1925. Located in Granton, Edinburgh.
The Chain Pier Distillery was a boutique pilot distillery where our distillers hand produced unique distillations to trial everything from malt types to custom casks. The distillery was only operational between October 2018 & November 2019 while The Bonnington Distillery was under construction. This short production window before closure yielded just 39 casks – making it some of the scarcest Single Malt Whisky ever produced. All the spirit was hand crafted using a 500 litre copper pot still.
Cask #190002 was chosen for release and produced just 234 bottles at cask strength – 57%. Drawn from a single heavily charred American virgin oak barrel and bottled without colouring or chill filtration.
Nose: Light & fruity with hints of berries, fruits of the forest, and green apples. Balanced with citrus zest, vanilla, and sweet malt.
Palate: Young and vibrant, sweet fruit, rich caramel, sweet malt, and hints of lemony crème brulee with fresh ginger spice.
Finish: Long, sweet and spicy, with lingering notes of vanilla & ginger.
