Shieldaig is a collection of single malt Scotch whiskies. Named for a loch in the Ross and Cromarty area of Scotland, "Shieldaig" is derived from Old Norse and stands for "The Loch of the Herring". This line of whisky evokes the magical landscapes with misty hills and small islands poking from the dark waters of the loch ― the same area that has attracted many a fisherman, seeking to enjoy its serenity and angling for herring.

Shieldaig Islay Single Malt is pot-distilled in a single Speyside distillery from malted barley, aged in charred American oak casks and bottled at 80 proof. The overall rich profile leads with smoke and oily peat. You can expect notes of vanilla, caramel, honey, and orange zest. The medium finish contains spice and pepper, as well as nutty overtones.
