Càrn Mòr is our range of rare and utterly unique independent bottlings. As each release is strictly limited in batches. Once it’s gone, it’s gone! Càrn Mòr releases whisky as it should be by bottling outstanding whisky in the way that many of the distilleries cannot due to restrictions. Our small, limited bottlings shall express the unique differences of each batch rather than trying to aim for consistency. Our whisky will be as close to drinking from the cask as possible.
We strive to honour our ancestors by keeping whisky making traditions at the heart of what we do, while embracing innovation. We showcase this unique balancing act of old meeting new through our diverse whisky portfolio. Our range currently includes a selection of rare and limited single cask bottlings along side a single malt whisky liqueur. We are delighted to be launching two new whisky brands in Spring 2021 which will further strength the variety of our offerings.
