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.
