"Red berries and stewed apples with a beautifully dry finish."
One of Diageo's workhorse distilleries; Dailuaine was founded in 1851 in Speyside. Dailuaine was the first distillery in Scotland to feature a pagoda roof, an architectural element that gained a lot of traction thereafter. Long fermentation, fast distillation and (historically) the use of stainless steel in their condensers, creates a heavy, meaty spirit that works incredibly well with sherry cask maturation.
Carn Mor is an independent bottling arm of Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers. The company has gone through a few names, being founded as John Murray & Co before it was taken over in 2005 by Kenny Mackay and former Morrison Bowmore chairman Brian Morrison. Initially bottling Scotch whisky under Carn Mor alongside the production of liqueurs, they founded the Aberagie distillery in Perthsire in 2017.
When Brian and son Jamie Morrison took sole ownership they rebranded as Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers in 2020. The Old Perth sherry cask matured blended malt and Mac-Talla Islay single malt brands are also part of the company's portfolio.
