The First Drop

The First Drop

A piece of Scottish distilling history, this unctuous, decadent release captures the very first drops of Girvan Single Grain Scotch Whisky to come off the stills at one of Scotland’s largest and most important distilleries. Carrying compelling notes of vanilla, spice, traditional sweet shops and coconut cream.

The Finer Details

It was Charles Gordon himself who first conceived and went on to build the Girvan grain whisky distillery in South Ayrshire throughout the early 1960s. On 8th January 1964, the very first drops of new make spirit were filled into cask and while many millions of litres of spirit have followed over the years, the first casks filled have lain undisturbed - improving with every day. This Girvan Single Grain Scotch Whisky is a piece of Scottish distilling history –the first drops of whisky to have flowed from a distillery that has played a huge role in Scotch whisky production over the last fifty years.
