Girvan Distillery

From the Producer: "Built in 1963, under the direction of Charles Gordon, the great-grandson of William Grant, Girvan was the most advanced distillery in the world at the time. The very first still continues making great whisky to this day. Known as 'No.1 Apps' a distillery term for apparatus it was joined by 4 other stills following 50 years. This included a new type of still introduced in 1992 to enable a unique process MPS distillation. Distilling at various pressures and under vacuum in particular allows us to vapourise and distill at lower temperatures. This resulted in a sweeter, fruitier, cleaner and purer spirit.

Our restless pioneering spirit and the quest to create the most deliciously different single origin whisky has resulted in our installation in 1992 of the MPS. The Multi Pressure System facilitates distillation to progress at a range of optimised temperatures.

Best evidenced by our distillation under vacuum we have found that lower temperature distillation prevents burning and toasting thus delivering a spirit free from any 'caramelised' notes. This unique process also limits any formation of sulphur compounds ensuring our fledgling spirit is pure and vibrant. Ripe now for long maturation in our vanillin rich American White Oak (Quercus alba) casks."
