The North British Distillery was founded in 1885 on the outskirts of Edinburgh by three independent whisky blenders and traders who wanted to create their own grain spirit. Over time, the distillery has grown into a major supplier of grain whisky for the Scottish blending industry. Only during the two world wars did production stop for a while. Like all grain distilleries, North British also has very few bottlings of its own. For this brand too it has to come from independent bottlers.
Douglas Laing is known for their special series Old Particular. Less well known, but even more special is the series Xtra Old Particular. In 2015, this 53 year old (!) North British single grain whisky, matured in a sherry cask, appeared in this series.
It's not a law of nature, but in general it's true: the older a single grain whisky, the better. This Chapter 7 bottled North British matured for 30 years in a sherry cask. Judging by the color, the sherry influence is not too dominant. Bottled at 44.5%.
North British is a large grain distillery near Edinburgh. There are hardly any distillery bottlings, but independent ones appear on a regular basis. Like this one. Single grain whisky needs a long time to mature. That has worked well with 30 years here!
As with all single grain whisky, in terms of availability, it must also for North British come from independent bottlings. Like this Rare Cask edition of Lady of the Glen. The single grain matured for 25 years in an ex-bourbon hogshead. Bottled at 51%.
One of the series from Signatory Vintage is the Single Grain Collection, a series with very attractively priced bottlings of single grain whisky, not complex, easy to drink. This is a grain from the North British Distillery, 13 years old and at 43%.
