Cragganmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Whisky

Cragganmore was established in 1870 by John Smith and is now owned by Diageo.
The founder of Cragganmore, John Smith, also participated in the construction of the railway. The site of Cragganmore is located near the railway range. For the situation that the transportation network was not fully developed at that time, the input of raw materials and the delivery of finished products for the winery, It is very beneficial to business.
Of course, when it comes to external publicity, the key point of course is to emphasize that the factory site is located in a deep valley with a sweet water source.
Cragganmore has been a member since the first generation of Classic Malts.
Although she is a member of the Diageo business group, she still retains some traditional features that are contrary to the modern emphasis on success and efficiency. Cragganmore still uses the Worm Tubs condenser, which is relatively difficult to operate and has low efficiency compared with modern column condensers.
After all, whiskey brewing itself is a traditional craft, and it is a good thing for serious whiskey drinkers to retain some traditional features, whether it is to preserve the tradition out of sincerity or as a promotional element.
It is worth mentioning that the original wine of Cragganmore was once one of the original wines of Grand Old Parr and White Horse.
