CAPERDONICH DISTILLERY

Though set up to produce the same character of spirit as its sister plant, Glen Grant, Caperdonich always made a variation on that theme. Light, floral, but with less of the crisp green apple seen across the road, here there are more soft pears, creaminess and fresh mint. Though this could perhaps be down to the differently shaped stills being installed during the 1967 expansion, it doesn’t fully explain why, when Glen Grant-style stills were re-installed in 1985, the two distillery characters didn’t match. It’s a subtle difference for sure, but a real one.

Production levels were relatively high in its later years given the number of independent bottlings which have appeared.

Pretty much dismissed as a second division malt when it was in production, today ‘Caper’ has a small but loyal group of fans who, rightly, see it as one of Speyside’s hidden gems.

Caperdonich was the first of the ‘extension’ distilleries built next to the original plant when demand began to rise. Originally and prosaically known as Glen Grant No.2, it was constructed across the road from its big sister in 1898 – a clear demonstration of the popularity of a whisky which has strong claims to be the first global single malt brand. The timing was not, however, ideal. The wild enthusiasm of the 1890s gave way to the despair of the start of the new century when demand slumped. It was the first great demonstration of whisky’s cyclical nature.

Like the majority of the distilleries built in this period, [see Imperial, Benriach] it closed soon after its being established, in Caper’s case in 1902. Although its kiln, malting floors, and warehouses operated, the stills lay silent, a chill reminder of over-optimism.

Then, in 1965, another boom and Glen Grant’s burgeoning trade with Italy resulted in demand for more juice. An expansion in 1967 saw the stills increased from two to four, while in 1977 it finally got its own name.

It ran until 2002, the year after Pernod Ricard acquired it. The site was sold to Forsyth’s, the coppersmiths, whose premises are next door. In 2011, it was demolished to allow the firm to expand their business. One pair of stills went to the Belgian Owl distillery, the others are intended to be installed at the new Falkirk distillery.

Rothes, Morayshire. Licentiehouder: The Glenlivet & Glen Grant Distilleries Limited. De produktiemaatschappij van The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. Eigendom van Seagram.
Gebouwd in opdracht van Major James Grant, zoon van James Grant de stichter van Glen Grant.
Caperdonich werd aanvankelijk Glen Grant 2 genoemd en was gelegen tegenover Glen Grant aan de overkant van de straat.
De distilleerderijen waren verbonden door een pijpleiding.
Door het frauduleus bankroet van de Pattison's in 1899 en de daarop volgende zware cri¬sis die de whiskyindustrie teisterde werd Glen Grant 2 gesloten in 1901 om pas in 1965 weer te worden opgestart met de naam Caperdonich.
Seagram nam Robert Brown Company in 1935 over en begon met het aanleggen van voorraden whiskies.
In 1948 werd Chivas Brothers overgenomen, in 1950 Milton distilleerderij, die werd om-gedoopt in Strathisla, in 1958 werd Glen Keith gebouwd, en in 1974/1975 werden Braes of Glenlivet en Allt - A - Bhainne gebouwd.
In 1978 werd The Glenlivet & Glen Grant Distilleries Limited overgenomen, waartoe ook Hill Thomson & Co, Longmorn, Caperdonich en Ben Riach toe behoorden.
In 2000 werd Seagram overgemone door Diageo en Pernod Ricard waarbij de Schotse whisky belangen toekwamen aan Pernod Ricard.
Caperdonich heeft vier met stoom verhitte ketels. Het proceswater komt van de Caper-donich Burn, het koelwater van de rivier Spey.
Glen Grant en Caperdonich worden gezamelijk door twaalf medewerkers gerund. Caperdonich is wat rokeriger dan Glen Grant.
Caperdonich heeft een Mash tun van 4.6 ton, en de acht Wash backs hebben een inhoud van 23000 liter elk.
De twee Wash stills zijn elk 11500 liter groot, de twee Spirit stills elk 7000 liter.
Ze worden indirect met stoom verhit.
De capaciteit van Caperdonich is 2.000.000 liter spirit per jaar.

SECRET SPEYSIDE COLLECTION OF MALTS LAUNCHED
June 2019
Chivas Brothers is releasing The Secret Speyside Collection, its biggest range of single malts launched to date, including 15 whiskies from four distilleries: Caperdonich, Longmorn, Glen Keith and Braes of Glenlivet (Braeval).

Four Secret Speyside single malts
Regional variations: The four Speyside distilleries offer a contrasting range of styles
Priced between US$100 and US$990 per bottle, all 15 whiskies carry age statements of 18-30 years, with three single malts released each from Longmorn, Glen Keith and Braes of Glenlivet (known since 1994 as Braeval); and three peated and three unpeated expressions from Caperdonich.

Chivas Brothers described the quartet as ‘four of Speyside’s most elusive distilleries’, reflecting the relative rarity of bottlings, particularly from lost distillery Caperdonich and from Braes of Glenlivet, one of Scotland’s highest distilleries, which was mothballed by Chivas between 2001 and 2007.

Glen Keith is another seldom-seen single malt, an experimental distillery in its past, and one that was also mothballed between 1999 and 2013, reopening under Chivas in 2013. The new whiskies are its first official age-stated releases.

Caperdonich was built across the road from its then sister plant Glen Grant in 1898, and was known as Glen Grant No 2 until 1977, running as Caperdonich until 2002, when it was sold by Chivas to coppersmith Forsyths, based next-door. The distillery was demolished in 2011 to allow Forsyths to expand.

Alan Winchester, master distiller at The Glenlivet distillery, who has 30 years’ experience of making whisky on Speyside, said of the collection: ‘With centuries of rich whisky heritage against a jaw-dropping Scottish landscape, Speyside is the treasure chest of Scotch and brimming with untold stories.

‘Curating the collection has been a labour of love for the Chivas Brothers team; its contents have been hand-selected to help shine a light on some seldom-seen distilleries, their rare malts and unique histories.’

Caperdonich is described as having ‘ripe orchard fruits’ in its unpeated form, with peat lending it ‘a sophisticated smokiness’.

Longmorn is said to have a ‘soft, creamy toffee and rich flavour profile’, while Glen Keith’s spirit is a ‘complex, intensely smooth example of the classic Speyside style’.

Lastly, Braes of Glenlivet is described as a single malt that is ‘smooth, balanced and packed with tropical fruits’.

The Secret Speyside Collection will be sold as a global travel retail exclusive range from July 2019 for one year, before rolling out to selected global markets from summer 2020.

Caperdonich’s 25 Year Old Peated and 30 Year Old Unpeated expressions are still in cask and will be released in October 2019.
