Old & Rare Platinum Selection Teaninich 40 Year old Single 700ml
The Teaninich Distillery is one shrouded in mystery. Founded in 1817, the Highland single malt whisky producer today has an annual capacity of 10.2 million litres and distills for brands including Haig Dimple, VAT 69 and Johnnie Walker. Despite its size and stature (it’s Diageo’s third-largest whisky distillery, covering more than 20 acres), there’s not much out there about Teaninich as a whisky in its own right – which is rather a shame as the liquid exudes as much character and body as its two illustrious near-neighbours: Dalmore and Glenmorangie. It was Captain Hugh Munro, head of the local clan, who set up Teaninich more than 200 years ago. Fun fact: in 1887 it became the first distillery north of Inverness to have electricity and a telephone. Teaninich remained in Munro family hands up until 1904, when Robert Innes Cameron, formerly a major shareholder, became the sole owner. After his death in 1932, the site was acquired by Distillery Company Limited the following year. Teaninich was passed from pillar to post through various mergers and acquisitions during the latter part of the 20th century, and today the distillery is of course owned by Diageo. If Teaninich is well-known for anything it is surely its unique blend of historic whisky distilling and cutting-edge technology – for example, it is one of just two Scotch distilleries to up its efficiency through using a mash filter instead of a mash tun or lauter tun. This focus on modernity has only accelerated in recent years: in 2013 Diageo invested £26 million in the site, essentially constructing a brand new, six-still-strong stillhouse and more than doubling capacity. In total, the site boasts 20 washbacks, six wash stills and six spirit stills, and 90% of its incoming barley is grown in Scotland. Teaninich is one of those rare whiskies where official bottlings are outranked by third-party products – and there aren’t even that many of those. Diageo has only launched one official expression from its Flora and Fauna range, and a 17 year old forms part of the Special Releases 2017 collection.

About the brand
Established in 1948 by founder, Fred Douglas Laing, Douglas Laing & Co. remains one of just a few Whisky firms in Scotland that remains independently owned. Over 70 years on from humble beginnings, our company is now in its third generation and remains as committed to our original goal: to create only the most exceptional Whisky. After serving with the Royal Air Force throughout World War Two, Fred Douglas Laing works with an American friend largely to develop the King of Scots brand to sell throughout Europe and the USA. Fred Jr. feels the call of White Horse Distillers and within further apprenticeship develops his blending skills further under the watchful eye of Gardiner Ferrier. Douglas Laing & Co. bottles the first of Billy Connolly’s Nippy Sweeties – a tribute to a Glasgow icon, known locally as The Big Yin. Fred Laing meets Her Majesty The Queen to accept The Queen’s Award for Export, a particular honour with the award celebrating its 25th anniversary. A landmark year, Douglas Laing and Co. unveils the plans to build a new Whisky Distillery on the banks of the River Clyde. The final Remarkable Regional Malts family member is also unveiled – The Gauldrons from Campbeltown. 2018 marks the 70th anniversary of Douglas Laing & Co. To celebrate seven decades of Whisky making, the company releases a number of commemorative bottlings including XOP Platinum.
