North British 1991 24 Year Old (cask 11223) - Clan Denny (70cl, 49.8%)

A Clan Denny single cask bottling from Douglas Hamilton, a subsidiary of Douglas Laing.

This particular bottling is a single grain whisky from Edinburgh's North British distillery.

Distilled in 1991 from Single Refill Hogshead #DH11223.

Prior to 1885, Scottish blenders were only able to acquire grain whisky from DCL. This changed when the firms of John Crabbie, Andrew Usher, William Sanderson and John Watson collaborated to open the North British distillery in Edinburgh. Production began two years later on a single coffey still, and the distillery continued to grow, flourishing in the post-war period. In 1993 it was taken over by Lothian Distillers, a partnership between IDV and Robertson & Baxter, the modern iterations of which, Diageo and Edrington, retain a controlling stake in today. Occasional distillery bottlings have appeared over the years, but the majority of examples of its single grain come from independent labels like this.

The Clan Denny label was originally launched in the mid-2000s by Douglas Laing, and bottled by their subsidiary company, Hunter Hamilton. The brand specialised in bottling well-aged single grain whiskies from single casks. When Douglas Laing was carved up between brothers, Stewart and Fred, in 2013, the Clan Denny brand remained with Douglas Laing, and the Hunter Hamilton trading name became Douglas Hamilton. In 2017 it was reassigned to another subsidiary, Douglas McGibbon, and has branched out to include whisky from other categories as well.
