Cool Maturation

HP0006

With as much as 70% of the overall flavour of a single malt whisky coming from the type of cask it is matured in, it is imperative to treat these handmade casks with a reverence and respect.

Orkney is unusually blessed with a wonderfully temperate climate, with neither extreme cold or hot temperatures; perfect for a long, cool maturation in our traditional warehouses. Other distilleries often mature their casks far from the distillery. We feel that by staying close to home, we give our whisky a distinctly Orcadian personality, with a smooth character and lingering, delicate smokiness.
