Background: North America’s FIRST Single Malt Whisky Distillery
In the early 1800’s, Scottish immigrants chose Cape Breton Island for their new home as its beauty so resembled the Highlands ad islands of Scotland. Many tradition and secrets came with these pioneers. The making of a spirited whisky was one of them. The crystal -clear water from MacLellan’s Brook flows from the Mabou Highlands located above Glenora Distillery, giving Glen Breton its classic and pure taste.
Product: Many moons ago in the magical hills of Cape Breton, several batches of Alexander Keith’s IPA were distilled, placed in oak barrels and tucked in a dark corner of Glenora Distillery. After 18 years of quietly maturing, Magic!
Country of Origin: Canada
Appellation: Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
Tasting Notes: A wonderful taste sensation of malted barley that was enhanced by the spring waters that flow around our apple trees throughout our Cape Breton Highlands. Those who love will love it a lot. Maple cream notes of butterscotch and a light finish of apple.
