Introducing the 2023 Release of our Art of St Andrews Single Malt Collection. The first in the collection to be lightly peated, this limited edition bottling was inspired by St Andrews, Guardbridge and the surrounding area and its design was created by local illustrator, Jill Calder.

Reminiscent of beach bonfires and with a taste evocative of smoked shortbread, the Art of St Andrews 2023 release will inspire and excite both peat lovers and non-peat lovers alike with a profile that transports you to the coast of St Andrews and summers spent with friends into the small hours, warmed by the flickering flames of campfires.

The lightly sweet and creamy taste has delighted all those who have sampled this exclusive new whisky and is a testament to our past and the future spirit we look forward to crafting. Unique, innovative and surprising.

While our Single Malt house style is normally unpeated, we produced some lightly peaty whisky in our original distillery prior to its closure.

After meeting Jill and exploring St Andrews with her, my University memories of bonfires on Castle Sands Beach were evoked and I felt this peated expression would be the perfect match, reflecting the smoky scent so reminiscent of my student days.

It is not a heavily peated expression so will appeal to those who do not normally enjoy a peated whisky. Peat from Aberdeenshire was used in the production of this whisky and it has a more floral and grassy profile than the peat found on Islay. I balanced it out with the finish premium ex-Grande Champagne Cognac casks so the overall taste is sweeter, much like a smoked shortbread biscuit.

Warming and rich. Gentle peat smoke accompanied by a sweet, candied hint of apricot & grape.

the palate

Begins with a waft of smoke and sweet juicy fruit. Leads to a sweet, floral, earthy peat and remains juicy & lively with a biscuity undertone.

the finish

Finishes with sweet fruit and light earthy peat developing alongside a dry, oaky spice and a light char.

Notes on flavour

The Grande Champagne Cognac Casks Scott used for this release previously held 1991 Millesime Cognac.

'Millesime' is a French term used to refer to a year when the grape quality was particularly superb. The equivalent expression in English is 'great vintage'.

The use of these casks has imparted an earthy sweetness and notes of grape & apricot to our Single Malt. They also impact the body of the whisky, giving it more depth and a creamy mouthfeel.

ex-Grande Champagne Cognac casks

Cognac is a region in the south-west of France, known for producing the world's finest brandy. For a cognac to officially be known as a cognac, it must be produced in this region.
There are six official cognac growing areas in the region. One of them is called 'Grande Champagne‘ and is considered the most prestigious.

Where peated whisky can be a little polarising, our Head Distiller Scott knew these casks would round off the peatiness with beautiful sweet notes and help make it more accessible - he likens the taste to smoked shortbread! Working with high quality casks to ensure our whisky is the best it can be has always been a priority in our distilling process and Scott knew it had to be those casks from the most well regarded region and the most premium cognac in the world.


art and inspiration

Scott and Jill spent some time in and around St Andrews, discussing their favourite things about this cherished town. Jill was particularly inspired by the beauty of nature and this is reflected in the vibrant colours she used, as well as in the various plants and animals that feature in her design. Scott took her to places he used to enjoy when he was a student at the university, recounting fond memories of bonfires with friends on Castle Sands.
