About Glen Scotia Victoriana Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Situated in the heart of Campbeltown, Glen Scotia is one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland. The Scotch distillery was founded by the Galbraith family in 1832. In 2014, the petite facility was purchased by the Loch Lomond Group. The distillery is quite small scale, outfitted with two 12,000 and 16,000-liter stills, with distinctive onion shapes and horizontal lyne arms.
Glen Scotia’s line-up showcases their versatility, as they produced a range of peated and non-peated whiskies, two styles characteristic of Campbelltown, once known as the “whisky making capitol”. Their malt is sourced from eastern Scotland, and crafted in open-topped, cast iron mash tuns, and their whiskies are processed with a variation in fermentation time yielding either nuttier, or fruitier malts. Their small-batch distillation process still maintains much of the original equipment designs dating back to the 1830s.
Released in 2015, Glen Scotia Victoriana begins with their classic single malt, aged in first-fill ex-bourbon casks. Inspired by Victorian times, Glen Scotia master distiller handpicked the casks from their reserve cellar based on their rare characteristics and exceptional maturity for this cask strength single malt. Bottled in the traditional way at 108.4 proof, this exquisite smooth single malt was finished in deep charred oak. Boasting a full-bodied spicy and fruit nose that develops into a mildly smoky palate, the finishing process adds extra vanilla flavors and a deeper, richer color.
Glen Scotia Victoriana was awarded Gold at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Gold at the 2020 International Spirits Challenge.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
