Burn Stewart Unfiltered
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.'
