This limited-edition Ben Nevis single malt was bottled by independent bottler Sansibar for the Finest Whisky Berlin series. It was distilled in 2011 and matured in a sherry hogshead for 9 years, before being bottled in 2021 at 53.6%. The Ben Nevis distillery was founded in 1825 by Angus McDonnell, and was taken over a couple of years later by ‘Long John’ McDonald. He got this nickname thanks to his extraordinary height: 1.93m (or 6’4). Quite a feat in the early 19th century! After his death in 1856, the distillery came into the hands of his son, Donald McDonald. Under his leadership the Ben Nevis distillery became a giant in the whisky world (pun intended). Only 352 bottles of Ben Nevis 9 Years Old Finest Whisky Berlin 2011 have been released.
