Arbikie 3 Years Old Highland Rye 2015 is an innovative single grain whisky from the field-to-bottle distillery Arbikie. The whisky is made with wheat, malted barley and rye grown on Arbikie’s Highland estate. It was aged in first-fill American oak and finished in Pedro Ximenez barrels. Just 998 bottles were filled from 3 casks. The newly-established single estate distillery Arbikie revived the tradition of rye whisky in Scotland, which went out of fashion about a century ago. The brothers John, Iain and David Stirling started out distilling gin and vodka on their family’s estate in the Highlands. In 2015, Arbikie began producing single malt whisky. The Arbikie distillery’s ethos is inspired by the farm’s history of field-to-bottle distillation, which started in 1794. Arbikie 3 Years Old Highland Rye 2015 is a bold and exciting dram with flavours of orange marmalade, cloves and maple syrup.
