Talisker Single Malt Whisky
Established in 1830 by brothers Hugh MacAskill of Eigg and Kenneth MacGaskill, Talisker whisky has been made by the sea in the oldest Single Malts Scotch Whisky distillery on the shores of the Isle of Skye, some of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. The name Talisker comes from the old Norse for Sloping Rock, ‘Thalas Gair’. Talisker’s smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with its rugged coastal heritage, described as “a wild spirit by the sea”, for wild spirits everywhere. Its intense character comes from the fresh water drawn directly from underground springs next to the distillery, two very distinctive wash stills and wooden worm tub condensers which, along with its unusual ABV of 45.8%, help set Talisker apart from other malts.
