Inchgower

Translation: Goat Island

Region: Speyside


Freshness and fish.

The town of Buckie on the north coast of the Speyside area is famous for two reasons. For their distilleries (besides Inchgower are here also Glenglassaugh and Macduff at home). And for her herrings. Once Buckie's herring fleet was one of the largest in the country, and the grilled "Buckie Kipper" is an integral part of the traditional Scottish breakfast. The Inchgower has always been a favorite with herring fishermen. But that should not scare us. The malt tastes pleasantly fresh. He smells more like sea air, not sea fish.


A little history

Although Inchgower itself was not founded until 1871, the history of the distillery goes back further. As early as 1825, John Wilson founded the Tochineal Distillery near Buckie. After several quarrels with the landowner, the Wilsons finally decided in 1871 to give up Tochineal and John's nephew Alexander founded the Inchgower Distillery as a substitute. The new distillery was built a few kilometers south of Buckie and equipped with equipment from Tochineal.
In 1936 the Wilsons went bankrupt and Inchgower was sold to the city of Buckie for only £ 1,000. Two years later, Arthur Bell & Sons acquired the distillery from the city. In 1966, the number of stills was doubled from two to four. In 1985, Guinness took over the company Arthur Bell & Sons. Since the merger of Guinness and Grand Metropolitan to Diageo in 1997 also Inchgower owned by the spirits giant Diageo. In 2012, the distillery was closed for comprehensive refurbishment for 16 weeks.


What do I actually have in the glass?

The Inchgower is not as massive and peaty as the Malts of Islay, but the salty, spicy sea air can be found here clearly. Friends of the Bowmore or even Old Pulteney would actually like the Inchgower.

3 reasons to love Inchgower

1) Because you simply have to love a malt called the "Goat Island".

2) Because the good sea air in the whiskey is included.

3) Because herring fishermen are rough guys with good taste.


The one drama for the lonely island

The 14-year-old original bottling from Diageo's Flora & Fauna series reflects the fresh, sea-air character of this fine malt.
