PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES OF WHISKY MAKING
In each new Octomore series, we set out to explore the very limits of single malt whisky. Distilled with quality not quantity in mind, these experimental, limited bottlings continue to push the boundaries of whisky making. Exploring barley provenance, terroir, varying peat levels and cask management, Octomore is an embodiment of our endless pursuit of flavour.
Head Distiller, Adam Hannett, sets himself his own challenge to create the unthinkable. Through each individual release, he invites you to consider the elements that contribute towards the depth and balance of each drop of whisky.
Is it the sourcing of raw ingredients? Is it the careful selection of the cask's quality and style? Or is it in the influence of nature; weather, climate and soil?
Polarised opinions. Exposure to criticism. Complete rejection. We accept the inevitable in the hopes of unlocking new realms of flavour and possibilty. Those who join us in adopting this mindset, championing our quiet confidence, will reap the rewards for the risks taken.

Edition 12.1Edition 12.1
Nowhere is the duality of our Octomore super heavily peated series more pertinent than in our 12.1 edition. Unexpected, delicate but powerful, this is unadulterated heavy smoke balanced with our vivacious fruity and floral distillate.
Edition 12.2Edition 12.2
Octomore 12.2 follows in the footsteps of previous Sauternes legends, confirming that heavy peat smoke combined with the sweet dessert wine of the French region is an incredible pairing.
Edition 12.3Edition 12.3
Octomore 12.3 is a single vintage, single field, single malt. Raised in Church Field on Octomore Farm by friend and farmer James Brown, this Islay grown barley has been trickle distilled through our tall narrow necked stills just two miles from where it was grown.
