Campbeltown’s unique coastal location once made it the gateway of the nation’s whisky industry and casks from afar. Double Cask is perhaps the perfect embodiment of the Campbeltown spirit, where very different personalities and styles come together in perfect unity to create something exceptional. It is crafted from start to finish by today’s distillery team,who collectively pour the tradition they have inherited into every dram.

Rich and spicy, this Double Cask scotch whisky boasts flavours from fudge to black pepper and so much more. It accomplishes fruity notes without overbearing citrus or peat, while its honey-smooth finish is synonymous with the body and viscosity Campbeltown is known for.
Enjoy sweet vanilla oak and a special piece of Scotland's history with our Double Cask. Let each sip transport you to Campbeltown past and present.
By using bourbon barrels for the initial maturation and finishing with Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, we merge American and European influences.
This leads to flavours of vanilla and green apple from the American barrels and an extra sherry-seasoned sweetness reminiscent of raisin from the finishing American oak and Spanish PX casks.
Letting the whisky age for a further 12 months in high-quality casks from an American and European region makes the spirit as smooth as a creamy butterscotch syrup while also adding to the taste in so many other tantalising ways.
The use of the PX sherry cask, as opposed to an Oloroso sherry cask, allows us to take advantage of the unique style that this sherry brings to the table.
The Oloroso is known for caramel, walnut, and deep fruit notes, while the PX is famed for being incredibly sweet and boasting even darker flavours such as fudge, fig, raisin, and molasses.
The oak and sherry sweetness balanced perfectly to create a well-rounded flavour.
Campbeltown was the Whisky Capital of the World in the Victorian era, and today, it is a jewel in the crown of whiskies that are proudly made in Scotland.
It needs no explaining that the Double Cask is a firm favourite of our Master Distiller, Iain McAlister, who enjoys it, especially on a Friday night as he winds down after a busy week.
Glen Scotia Double Cask is for those who value the authenticity of a historic town; for those with a curious mind and an explorer's heart; and for those who enjoy the camaraderie of a shared drink, as well as the discussion that follows.

Our small batch processing results in a fine selection of whiskies that thrived in the 1830s and continue to gain a growing following worldwide.
