To produce single malt whisky you only need three ingredients, Malted Barley, Water and Yeast. Distilleries will have their own style of whisky due to many reasons, such as the water used, the size of the copper still, maturation, chill filtration and more. At Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery we believe in keeping things natural. We use our local water source, Crosshill Loch, to supply us with water throughout the process, from steeping the barley until diluting the whisky at the bottling stage.
We let the spirit mature at its own pace in our warehouses and when it is time for bottling we do not chill filter our whisky, neither do we add any caramel colour to it. Our malt/mash/still men and women have worked so hard to develop all the character in our malt that we would be mad to remove all of these good bits from the final product! Here is an overview of our production of Kilkerran Single Malt Whisky.
