Produced in small batches using 100% B.C. malted barley, B.C.’s oldest craft distillery releases the exclusive Laird of Fintry 'Scotch-style' Single Malt Whisky only once a year through a lottery.
Yes! Unfortunately the term 'Scotch' is native to Single Malt Whiskys produced in Scotland.
As we are a 100% BC distillery our Laird of Fintry goes by the title 'Single Malt Whisky'
After years of barrel-aging in French and American Oak, this Single Malt is smooth, non-peated and combines solid forest notes of toasted oak with more delicate tones of vanilla, plum, raisins, caramel and spice.
Fragrance: Typical aromas, candy ester type, wild berries, raspberries, bananas, a lot of raisin, subtle grain, sherry cask accents, green nuts, light nougat, vanilla. Taste: Multi-faceted, very fruity abundance of aromas, berries, pears, grapes, malt and cream candy, raisins, vanilla, malty sweetness, some green and tart wood, good tightness and length. (90 points - Gold)
Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery wanted to pay homage to the Okanagan when naming its Single Malt Whisky.
'The Laird of Fintry' title is based on the true story of James Cameron Dun-Waters, the ‘Laird’ of Fintry estates in Fintry, BC, who in the early 1900s ordered a special batch of personally labelled Single Malt Whisky (Scotch) from his homeland Scotland.
Using a replica of the original label, Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery wanted to honour the history of whisky in the Okanagan.
In turn, it also supports the ‘Friends of Fintry Society' with an annual donation to help maintain the original property of The Laird.
