INCHGOWER

Distillery
  • Region: Speyside
  • Address: Buckie, Banffshire
  • Founded: 1872
Product Description

Inchgower is intensely spicy, which is as a result of a hotter than usual second water during the quick mashing regime which cuts back any overt nuttiness. Fermentation is short and the steeply angled lyne arms on the stills help to capture weightier elements. An underlying waxiness flashes a signal to another coastal plant, Clynelish.

 

Did You Know?

Inchgower was built in Speyside in 1871 after the distiller Alexander Wilson was forced out of the nearby Tochineal distillery his uncle had built 40 years previously when the landlord doubled the rent.

The distillery was bought by Buckie council in 1936 after Alexander Wilson & Co. went out of business.

Bell's was bought by Guinness in the 1980s, with ownership transferring to United Distillers in 1987. Inchgower is therefore now a part of Diageo.

Distillery Tasting Notes

Nose

Honey, melon, banana and coconut little. Better with water – ripe green apple pie, floral freshness.

Palate

Vanilla, spices, mandarins, marshmallow. Fresh yellow fruit, bitter lemon and some ginger. With water a nuttier green note comes through.  

Finish

Candied nectarine sweetness, faint almond note, dry nutty finish.
