North Point Distillery has launched a new Highland single malt whisky.
Located in Caithness, in the north of Scotland has unveiled ‘Dalclagie’ Highland Single Malt Whisky.
Launching the whisky, co-founder Struan Mackie said:
“We’re incredibly proud to launch Dalclagie Single Malt Whisky. Having received our permissions over two years ago, the team began work on our Single Malt expression, ensuring our ethos for quality and taste was at the core of everything we do. To finally announce the Dalclagie brand and our cask programme is a proud moment for the distillery.”
Dalclagie uses Kveik yeast, which can handle higher temperatures than other yeasts without causing off flavours. At the moment the whisky is described as having notes of tropical fruit, tinned peaches, and pineapple with a croissant sweetness. Long term, the whisky will be matured in Palo Cortado sherry casks.
The distillery will produce 200 casks of Dalclagie New Make every year with the Dalclagie Cask Programme launching and available to subscribe via their website.
