Mackillop's Choice Whisky Independent Bottler

Mackillop's Choice Whisky Independent Bottler

Mackillop's Choice independent whisky bottler was founded in 1996 by Angus Dundee Distillers (owner of the Glencadam and Tomintoul distilleries).

It is named after Lorne Mackillop. Lorne Mackillop is the heir to the chief of the Mackillop Clan, which was all but wiped out by the English in the aftermath of the battle of Culloden in 1745 during the Jabobite Rebellion.

After seven years extensive training in wines and spirits, Lorne Mackillop became a member of the Institute of Masters of Wine in London in 1984, and, at that time, was the youngest person to be accepted as a Master of Wine. The Institute presides over the most demanding examinations in wines and spirits in the world and, since its foundation in 1953, only a few members worldwide have passed these examinations and been considered worthy of this prestigious qualification. His comprehensive knowledge of whisky is reflected in the quality of "Mackillop's Choice".

Lorne selects the casks that are bottled in the Mackillop's Choice range. It is a range of specially selected single malt Scotch whiskies drawn from individual casks, and are bottled at either 43% or 46% alcohol, but more predominantly at their natural cask strength, without chill-filtering or the addition of any caramel colouring, which helps preserve the malts natural characteristics of aroma and taste.
