Magnus Yousen founded the distillery at the end of the 18th century.
Eunsen is not just a priest as most people think. He was a deacon by day and a smuggler by night. The smuggling operation took place in the sheds on the outskirts of Kirkwell, where the Highland Knight Distillery is now located.
In that year, Benedict and the now defunct Distillery launched a new single malt whiskey to commemorate the joint launch of the new brand "Dewof Ben Nevis", which was well received in the global market.
To commemorate the 185th anniversary of the establishment of the distillery, the distillery decided to revive this whiskey that was popular all over the world a century ago. When looking back at the history of the Balniford distillery, the distillery discovered some very interesting distillation techniques that are worth continuing. After several efforts, Balniford finally succeeded in recreating the whiskey that was popular all over the world in 1882.
This is a wine with a peaty flavor.
On the nose: a wonderful blend of fruit and soft peat, the most notable of which are marmalade, almonds, and vanilla.
On the palate: Just the right amount of peat at first, followed by excellent dark chocolate and concentrated fruit and fruitcake.
Finish: Sweet and persistent, with a peaty aroma revisited after a few minutes.
