The Caperdonich Distillery was originally better known as Glen Grant number 2. Built in 1898 by the founders of the Glen Grant Distillery but was closed after only being in production for 4 years. It sat dormant till 1965 when Glenlivet Distillers Ltd rebuilt the distillery. By that time, British law prohibited simultaneously operating distilleries from using the same name, and Glen Grant #2 was reopened as "Caperdonich". The distillery was only run by two people and the owners Pernod Ricard closed and demolished the distillery in 2010.

This single malt whisky was distilled in 2000 at the Caperdonich Distillery in the Speyside region of Scotland. It was then placed in a single Hogshead for no less than 22 years. Bottled with natural colour and no chill-filtration at 55% ABV from cask number 29493 as part of the Signatory Vintage Cask Strength Collection. Only 250 bottles were produced. A rare chance to grab and taste a piece of Scottish whisky history or add it to your collection as one day they'll all disappear.

Official Tasting Notes


Nose: It starts fruity and juicy, quince and peaches, Manuka honey sweetness and creamy vanilla. Freshly baked bread with some creamy coconut notes slightly floral, almost like flowers on a meadow. There's also some aromas of mint.

Palate: Ripe bananas and freshly cut oranges, sweet and fruity, vanilla and white pepper, coconut and polished oak. Thick, chewy and waxy.

Finish: Long with plenty of fruity sweet notes, mint and a hint of white pepper.
