In the small town of Kilwinning in Ayrshire, Scotland, The Singleton [เดอะ ซิงเกิลตัน, which is the term in THAI] whisky was born, and it’s now one of the biggest selling scotch whiskies in the world. But where did it come from? Why is it so popular? And what makes it so much better than other brands? Here are five things you must know about Singleton Whisky.
The distillery uses some of Lowland’s finest ingredients. For example, they use only 100% Scottish barley and soft Lowland water (which is a rarity, considering that 95% of all Scotch is made using water from Highland rivers). This combination allows them to create a product that’s second to none.
What makes Singleton worth its price tag? It all boils down to two things: taste and consistency. Since 1839, no master blender has been more consistent than Charles MacLean. He passed down his knowledge of oak and his eye for quality from generation to generation—and they continue to shine through in each bottle of whisky he creates today.
For over 300 years, a single-family has been behind one of Scotland’s most famous whiskies. Singleton of Glendullan—has been crafting some of its nation’s finest whisky since 1779.
Reinvented and Reinvigorated
After a 20-year hiatus, Glencadam Distillery, one of Scotland’s oldest surviving distilleries, re-opened its doors to a new generation of whisky lovers. This single malt scotch whisky offers complex flavors and aromas that make it distinctly Scottish—unlike any other whisky you’ve ever tried.
Like most quality single malts, Singleton Scotch whisky takes its time to create. First, barley is slowly dried over burning peat in purpose-built kilns. This gives the distinct smoky flavor that helps it stand out from other whiskies produced around the world. Secondly, each batch of whisky gets distilled twice – once in a wash still and again in a spirit still – to ensure a purer product with smooth notes of honey and citrus fruit on top of its more robust underlying flavors.
