Product details

While the Ardgowan distillery is being built, the team behind the new venture released the Clydebuilt series of independent bottlings inspired by the maritime history of the Clyde shipyards, which saw boats like Cutty Sark, The Queen Mary, and the QE2 built there. Sailmaker is the third whisky in the series, named after the craftsmen who made and repaired sails.

Created by master whisky maker Mac McFarlane (who previously served as lead whisky maker at Edrington, working on whiskies like Highland Park), Sailmaker is a blend of six malt whiskies from the Highland, Lowland, and Speyside regions, fully matured in first-fill oloroso sherry casks. It’s already scooped up a number of impressive awards, with its rich balance of oak influence, sherried fruit and spices, and brighter, sweeter notes.
