Description

St John's Craft Beer Bar in conjunction with Destination Cellars invites you to a very special afternoon with two of Scotland's small scale "Indie" distilleries that are very hard to find yet produce malts of the highest quality. It will be held in our St John's Dram Den on Saturday June 30th at 2pm.

Glencadam first opened in 1825, in the ancient city of Brechin. This was the year that the first horse-drawn omnibuses were established in London, the world's first modern railway opened, with the first public train pulled by steam engine, Cox's Orange Pippin apples were first grown and London became the largest city in the world, over-taking Beijing. It was little more than one year after the Excise Act of 1823 legalised distilling. Glencadam is now the only distillery in the county of Angus, an area of the Highlands region of Scotland. From the delicate 10 Year Old to the exceptional Aged 15 & 21 years, we will taste these superb multi award-winning expressions from one of Scotland's oldest distilleries.

Tomintoul Distillery was built in 1964 and uses traditional techniques that stretch back hundreds of years to make theirr award-winning single malt, “the gentle dram”.Situated on the banks of the Spey’s main tributary, the Avon and taking its name from Scotland’s highest village nearby, Tomintoul is a distillery that has only recently been more widely seen as single malt.

We will sample the following on the night:
