McDonald’s Traditional Ben Nevis Pure Malt

Ben Nevis – Highland distillery from 1825. The distillery is located at the foot of Britain’s highest mountain (1344 metres) of the same name. Founded by “Long” John McDonald, who for his time was a tower with his 1.90 meters. Ben Nevis produces both single malt and blends, and also has a blended malt, made as a tribute to the memory of the Battle of Glencoe.

MacDonald’s Traditional Ben Nevis was first made back in 2010, 185 years after the Ben Nevis Distillery came into existence, as a recreation of the original McDonald’s Traditional, which was a popular dram back in the 1880s.
