Linkwood

This distillery by the banks of the river Lossie is every bit the idyll of a country distillery, with its woodlands and resident population of Swans. Legend has it that longtime manager Roderick Mackenzie thought the environment so important to the taste of Linkwood, he forbade the removal of spiders’ webs from the rafters in case the character were to change. Great care is still taken to maintain its high standards, though the cobwebs have been removed. Founded in 1821, the distillery sits in a tranquil setting overlooking the dam of the Linkwood Burn. The water that makes Linkwood whisky comes from Millbuies springs, and makes a fine, smooth and complex whisky; just it always has, through wars and depressions, takeovers and closures. Deliciously complex, there’s just a hint of smoke in amongst Linkwood’s verdant garden. It’s this cigar-box tang which signals the complexity and depth held within, and keeps the drinker coming back for more.
