Back in 1981, the peculiar Peter Mackie teamed up with seasoned distillers and gung-ho entrepreneur Alexander Edward to build the Craigellachie brand. Many years later Craigellachie is still kicking, putting out an array of aged whiskies for all to taste and enjoy.

This Craigellachie is just 17, you know what we mean—and the way it tastes is far beyond compare. As it sashays into the glass, the mellow yet heady spirit trails silky, tropical fruit in its wake. Developing complexity ends in a finale of licorice and smoke. The winner of Whisky Advocate Magazine’s Speyside Single Malt of the Year Award, 17 is an ambitious beauty with just a hint of rebel.
