Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a truly unique spirit. Its infinite complexity of flavours and aromas deserve to be appreciated.
Professional tasters and whisky experts recommend the addition of pure, fresh spring water. Adding water will ‘open up’ your whisky, soften the alcohol prickle and allow it to breathe. New and subtle tastes and aromas will be revealed.
ST COLMAN’S WELL, ROSS-SHIRE
Allow us to introduce St Colman, founder of several churches in the Highlands of Scotland during the 7th Century. It must have been thirsty work, for there is a well that bears his name to this day. St Colman’s Well, close to some of the popular Highland distilleries, is where we take our Highland water for Uisge Source. The water is filtered through red sandstone and limestone rock strata. So it’s hard and rich in minerals, as is the water used by the nearby distilleries. The locals were frequent visitors to the well over the centuries. Here you can still see several rocks with cup marks in them. It seems longevity was commonplace too, with ages of 117 and 107 being recorded.
