Arbikie Highland Estate launches Scotland’s first Rye Whisky in over 100 years
Arbikie has just announced its arrival in the Scottish Whisky industry by launching its ‘Highland Rye’ Single Grain Scotch Whisky, the first Rye Whisky distilled in Scotland for over 100 years.
Arbikie’s Highland Rye Single Grain Scotch Whisky was laid down in 2015 and uses a combination of Arantes Rye, Odyssey Malted Barley and Viscount Wheat. The Whisky, which is owned and distilled by the Stirling brothers in Lunan Bay near Arbroath, stays true to the family’s farming heritage with all crops grown on the farm meaning every ingredient used in the making of the Highland Rye can be traced back to the field it was grown in.
The copper pot distilled Highland Rye Single Grain Scotch Whisky has been matured in first-fill charred American Oak casks and finished in Pedro Ximénez casks with no colouring and no chill filtration.
With only 998 bottles available globally this is a unique luxury whisky release.
