Old Ballantruan owes its name to an exceptional source of the purest of waters, the Ballantruan Spring, nestling in the Cromdale Hills close to Tomintoul, the highest village in the Scottish Highlands. After “sleeping” for many years in hand-picked oak barrels, this whiskey has been at 50% volume and without any chill-filtration in order to retain its layered and integrated peaty flavors.
