One of the key Single Malts within Ballantine’s is made in MiltonduffDistillery –known for its charming and iconic water wheel. This distillery provides the Foundation in Ballantine’s Blends.
In the 15th century a priory stood close to where Miltonduff Distillery stands today. The Benedictine Monks of that priory blessed the waters of The Black Burn river and used them to brew ales that were acclaimed as the finest in Scotland. Those same waters are still used in the distillation process of Miltonduff Single Malt today.
Every bottle of Miltonduff flows from the springs of The Black Burn, imbuing the whisky with the flavours of its misty landscape.
TASTE: The Miltonduff Single Malt is the foundation of a Ballantine’s blend, bringing warmth and power. Floral with a subtle hint of cinnamon spice, this whisky is extremely smooth with gentle liquorice flavours
FINISH: a long, warm finish.
