Situated in the Speyside region of Scotland, the Cragganmore Distillery was founded by John Smith in 1870. Smith heralded from a dynastic whisky family.
Today, the Cragganmore Distillery continues to honor the Smith legacy by crafting a unique single malt whisky made exclusively from lightly smoked barley. Once the barley arrives at the distillery, it is mashed in one of the distillery's six stainless steel mashtuns before being fermented in washback's made of European larch. While larch washback's are more difficult and expensive to maintain as compared to steel washback's, they absorb a portion of the heat generated during fermentation and thus, contribute to a more robust flavor profile.
