A UNIQUE PROCESS
StrathEnry is made using the same hammer mill, mash filter, wash backs and stills as InchDairnie Single Malt, but there are definite differences. StrathEnry is always made the same way throughout the year. This means one single yeast recipe, the same style of malted barley no matter the time of year, and it has a different cut point for the middle cut. We also have no control over the casks it is matured in. They are chosen by our customers, those we supply the new make malt spirit to.
With our InchDairnie, we use Fife grown barley, a variety of yeast recipes and is produced according to the seasons.
NOT TO BE UNDERESTIMATED
While InchDairnie Single Malt will be bottled eventually, we currently have no plans to do the same with StrathEnry. This does not mean StrathEnry should be underestimated or taken lightly. It comes with the best credentials and praise from competitors and customers alike. So much so that we sell or exchange with the various distilling groups in Scotland and politely turn buyers away. That is quite a feat for a young distillery, but the proof is in the quality of the liquid.
We feel confident this whisky could win awards, but you are likely to meet it first from independent bottlers. Once the new make Strathenry has left the distillery we cannot control the wood it goes into, but we know, that this liquid deserves only the best casks.
