Perth & Kinross,
Edradour Distillery, in the hills just above Pitlochry, has followed the exact same process of making whisky for the past 150 years, making just 12 casks (600 litres) per week. Their production in one year is what the bigger distilleries like Bell's makes in one week. But, because the entire operation is done under one roof by just 3 guys, they have a much closer control of quality, essentially doing each batch by hand. Nothing much has changed over the years at this distillery: in fact, they still have to go into the fermentation tank after the beer (wort) has been drained off and shovel out the spent grains manually.
THE WHISKY TRAIL
The traditions of distilling and maturing Scotch Whisky have evolved through the centuries, using crafts passed from generation to generation in a continual process of refinement. Today our fine Scotch Malt Whisky is produced in distilleries located in the most picturesque of settings, close to the natural ingredients on which their unique flavour depends.
