op het etiket wordt vermeld Craigduff, dit is de experimentele geturfrookte single malt whisky van Strathisla

6 October 2005 CRAIG DUFF
At time of bottling our first cask of Craigduff 1973, we believed, based on information available to us, that Craigduff was a peated malt from Strathisla Distiller}.
based on our own more detailed research, we have now established that Craigduff was, in fact, distilled at the nearby Glen Keith distillery,
Since first releasing Ciaigduff, there has been considerable "chatter" on huw the whisky was peated etc. In this regard our own understanding is now as follows:-
Lightly peated bar ley from Glen Keith makings was used in conjunction with controlled amounts of concentrated peated water, being added to each wash charge.
Peated water was brought in 45 gallon drums from Stornaway, on fishing boats into the port of Buckie. The peated water was run through the small still at Glen Keith, which was coupled to an angled condenser and water driven o IT to concentrate the peatiness in the remaining water. It is understood that 10 gallons of the concentrated peated water was added to each wash charge.
We understand the drive behind the experimental distillation came from a sister company in Japan. Apparently, during the course of the experiment, a sample of the concentrated peated water, whilst en route to'Japan, was intercepted at Heathro airport by Customs Officials who were convinced it was whisky in disguise, and decanted a fair bit of the drum before realising, too late, that it was in fact just water.
We apologise for any inconvenience that our wrongly associating Craigduff with Strathisla Distillery may have caused and would be grateful if you could upda*e your web site and any other product descriptors to reflect the tact that Craigduff was actually made at Glen Keith.

When Glen Keith was build in 1957, the owners had in mind the idea of producing an Islay
style heavily peated malt. This highly individual peated whisky produced was called Glenisla
to distinguish it from the ordinary Glen Keith
