Whisky is being distilled in Stirling for the first time in 171 years

Stirling Distillery have begun production of their own new-make whisky. Did you know that whisky hasn’t been distilled in the city since 1852?

Distillery co-founder Cameron McCann

“For us, the essential elements in creating a truly special whisky are simple; from using only the best water, yeast and malted barley to the care that goes into hand selecting the best quality casks. This will develop the rich flavours. We’re excited to be embarking on this whisky journey”.

These bottles – with only 300 available – will be released biannually over three years. By purchasing a set, whisky enthusiasts will join the distillery’s Cask Club, giving them first refusal on all limited and first release whiskies along with other member benefits.
