Burn Stewart Unfiltered

Postby Rob Allanson » Tue Oct 12, 2010 6:57 pm

Burn Stewart Distillers, producers of Bunnahabhain, Tobermory, Ledaig and Deanston malt whiskies has made a bold move to re-launch its entire range of malts as un-chillfiltered - the way whisky would have been produced at the hands of crafstmen many years ago.
The evolution of the portfolio has been introduced across its Bunnahabhain 12 year old, Tobermory 10 Year Old, Ledaig 10 Year Old and a new addition, Deanston Virgin Oak.
The launch comes as Burn Stewart Distillers announce another successful financial year, with sales in Asia-Pacific growing from £7.8m to £10.4m. Growing gross margins also contributed to a doubling of pre-tax profit to £1.3 million. The company has seen a strong performance by all brands in key markets, where the un-chillfiltered malts will also be available.
This move is in line with the vision of Burn Stewart Distillers' Master Blender, Ian MacMillan. Ian comments: 'Whisky spends all those years maturing in the casks, developing the aroma and flavour. By un-chillfiltering, nothing is taken away or added so whisky lovers can enjoy the whisky at its very best, giving them a better whisky experience. Each dram retains a depth of flavour, allowing the gentle, subtle notes of the malt to come through, providing a purer taste, nose and appearance.'

Good news. The new Bunnahabhain is excellent. Let's hope other distillers follow suit

Strangely Bunnahabhain was the latest to join this of their distilleries. I mentioned before that Deanston and Ledaig/Tobermory was not my favourites..before. In the new bottling style these malts are excellent and if you had them before and tend to stay away from, you should go out and retry the new 46.3% versions. Great whisky
